Oh Motivation, where art thou?

So after having a pretty good, solid month of eating mostly right and working out, these past few days I've found myself in a bit of a slump. Maybe because it's I'm craving those not-so-good-for-you foods, or maybe it's because I've been up late again and tired (as usual), or maybe because I feel on some level I've "earned" a break and hey - yesterday was my birthday, too.

Whatever the reason, I'm sitting here trying to muster whatever little bit of motivation I can to keep going and not quit. It's just too don't workout one day, or the next...and then a couple weeks go by. I've worked too hard to lose ground.

This week I've worked out Monday. That's it. Nothing for the past two days and there was a bit of unhealthy eating going on, too. Not good. Tonight after the kids go to bed, my plan is to do Shred Level 1 and 2 to sort of kick my butt back into gear. I may well do the same again tomorrow night. I also haven't kept up with the water intake as much as I'd like this week. So I see more of that in my future, too.

How is everyone else doing? What do you do to stay motivated when you're in the thick of reaching your goal?

I'm going to do a post that sort of addresses this. Go back and read your blog archive. That works for me!

Get a fitness magazine like Shape or Fitness or Oxygen. Reading all the diet and exercise advice motivates me to keep going.
