Forget all the Reasons

"Forget all the reasons why it won't work, and believe in the one reason why it will" Unknown

This quote seems to fit well today, there is always a way to make something work that you really want to happen. Some things are not easy, maybe they don't even feel "right" at the time, but if you know in your heart that you feel better after doing it, you can find that one reason.

Unfortunately for me, depression kept me in bed today and off the treadmill. I laid there thinking of ALL the right reasons to get up and get going and still could not rise. I have many motivating factors that SHOULD get me out of bed, but when the depression kicks in, it's a losing battle.

I figured I could battle the big D today with good, clean eating if I wasn't going to walk. So, at least there is that small accomplishment. There is also tomorrow...another day to find the right reason and forget anything that isn't a positive, motivating force in my life.

I plan to wake early, go on my treadmill, eat clean and try to forget the reason I am feeling sorry for myself right now. I plan to do the right thing tomorrow.

Reading the blogs here on SP is always helpful, when you find so many people battling with the same things you are...I just wish I could meet some of you!

Goodnite, sparkpeeps.

    Are things any better yet?

    I've also always liked the quote "Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes it is the little voice in your head that says I will try again tomorrow."

    Depression is a hard thing to battle. It's hard to get motivated to do anything when you're battling it, even if you know doing those things might make you feel better in the end.

    Good idea, sometimes, if I feel that way I have to tell myself "well I don't like feeling this way and if I do not get back to exercising I will possibly feel the same tomorrow or worse. AND I remember that exercise will take away the depression and help me to feel more up to completing other things, ex: more exercising, other goals, and keep my health at an optimal level or at least have a better chance of doing so for all of the above.. emoticon
