Motivated Couch Potato

Oh Mondays!

Monday was just a blah day. Granted it was a Monday right? I came home from work and was not motivated to do anything. Vacuum the house that I put off this past weekend? Nope. Do the dishes left from the day before? Sure, only because I need to make dinner. Eat half of my weekly points? Hell yea! Watch hours of Grey’s Anatomy? That happened.

No matter what I told myself in my mind, I couldn’t get off the couch. I couldn’t motivate myself to do anything but eat and watch T.V. The weather has been so cold lately that all I could do was wrap up in a blanket and hibernate for the night.

Tips to Spark Motivation

  • Blare your happy song! You know, that song that pops on and you can’t help but shake your butt and sing at the top of your lungs.
  • Connect. If you are a Weight Watchers member jump on Connect and read success stories and join hundreds of other people in the same position as you.
  • Hug your dog and take him for a walk. Mine constantly stare at me with their beady eyes that say it’s time to go outside.
  • Shut up your inner demon. I know that is easier said than done but the only person you are battling here is yourself. Conquer the beast, tell her to shut up, and get moving.

To-Do List

Do you make lists? I’m a list maker and love writing things down. I’m also known to leave my list at home when I go shopping. Here are my goals for today:

  • Vacuum the house (my husband is taking care of this)
  • Write a few posts to have on hand
  • Work in my garden
  • Make chicken and rice for dinner
  • Clean up my kitchen
  • Put laundry away – it is a mountain!

Well, today is a new day and it is finally warm! How do you stay motivated or get motivated in the first place? What is on your list for today? Leave me a comment and let me know how you do with your list and motivation to get off the couch! I love reading your comments and responding.

    I give myself mini goals to do at commercial times if I am watching tv. Like do jumping jacks, pick up the living room, or dust. That way I give myself permission to sit down and relax in between accomplishing little things–and in the end I feel better about myself.
