What day to potatoes hate?  Fryday

Sorry I am just in that kind of mood, and nobody will probably make it here to read this anyways.

I have got to get a run in.  My motivation is terrible right now.  I just can't seem to get up to do anything.  But I will not let the weekend go by without getting something done.  I think I need to make a plan.  Plans always help me.  

I hope everyone was a great Friday.

So first I'm going to say that it makes me sign in each time I come to Ivillage.  Usually I'm already in.  Also, so far so good.  By now I've received the "you're not allowed to post" message so maybe it's decided to be friends. 

Amy, I'm trying to get in here but it doesn't like me these days.  I suspect it's a middle school girl.  You know how they are.  Friends one day...out of the club the next. ;) 

I am SO sorry you are lacking motivation.  You are speaking my language!  I am currently on a roll and running but seriously, talk to me in three days and I could be right off track again.  And I'm supposed to be calling my referral specialist, right?  But I'm stalling because it's too  much of a hassle. I know it's going to be so much work.  I understand and I feel so frustrated with you and for you. 

It doesn't always work for me but start small and tell yourself this ~block of time is mine.  No one else gets it I don't care what you have to do...this time is mine.  I MUST take care of me in that space of time~.  Even if you dress to run and then walk.  While you are walking...maybe take music and the music will inspire you to run>  Walk the dog...do you have a dog?  he inspires me to run because he won't walk with me.  Darn dog.  Do Fartleks.  Run to that mailbox.  Then walk to the next spot. Run to the next.  Walk to the next.  Eventually you will run and feel awesome.  Or not and you'll count it as speedwork.  Kick butt.
