I have become. So. Lazy. I feel like i am in a downward spiral of laziness.

I feel like eventually, i won't be able to move. What do you do to motivate yourself? I cannot motivate for nothing. I'm surprised i manage to even clean my house (it's not that clean really).

How do you do it? How do you get motivated? How can i find more discipline & motivate myself?

I can't seem to do anything i want to be doing. Like losing weight, doing art, playing my instruments. Maybe I'm depressed....or maybe i'm just happy in my pool or laziness..

How do you do it?

  • Think of how short life is and how much time you are wasting time doing nothing, enjoy life while you can! Every moment you do nothing is a moment wasted in time, a less moment you took advantage of while you could, get off your butt!!!!!!!

  • There are times when I allow myself a lazy day...or few days...but I always pay for it! And I don't like paying for it! Also, my family deserves better than a disorganized or dirty house, picking through dirty clothes for the "cleanest" they can find to wear and a mom who doesn't play with them or cook them nutritious homemade meals. Okay...my kids have never had to pick through dirty clothes, but I've known kids who do. I am motivated by providing my husband and my children with what they deserve!

  • I am pretty happy in my pool of laziness. I was so busy for so long that now that I don't work...I am just kind of sitting here. Blah. I am trying to motivate myself to do better in school this semester. So far today I have been on this site 4 times, facebook a few times, and just stared at my school work like its the plague.

  • i do my motherly duties & i do them well. I never let my house get out of hand & my children always have clean clothes & healthy food to eat. It's these times when i am home alone, everything is done & all i want to do is sit on my fat ass, when i need to throw on a workout video & move my body, or paint a picture, or do something positive for myself. I feel like a maid & when i have time off from my maid duties, i can't seem to motivate to better myself at all. I want to better myself, i want to be the person i always thought i'd be when i grew up. I'm really struggling with that.

  • Maybe do a little bit of excercising in the morning just to try to give you a boost for the day and do you take vitamins to help boost your metabolism,that might help some.I have been reading alot about fish oil pills,sounds disgusting,I know,but I guess they are suppose to work wonders. :)
