Motivational Monday #2


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Are you excited for the new week? You should be. It's an opportunity to asses what you want out of your time and decide upon the best attitude to help you reach it. I have faith in you!



The second week in January is usually the time I give up on New Year's Resolutions and feel rather melancholy at the sorry state of my will power. I don't think I'm alone. 

You've had a good crack at things but really, not drinking fizzy drinks or finally reorganising your junk room is hard work and sometimes boring. I get it, I feel your pain. I can't even tell you how much I want a gallon of iced diet coke and some cheese fries.

But, we have each other and this warm, engaging community to support us!

Have a think about a goal or aim you have at the moment. It doesn't have to be a New Year Resolution as I know some people don't bother, but just something you're trying to do/not do right now in your life. Focus on it. Are you doing it well? Are you veering off course? Are you cheating a little bit?

Make today be the day that you try a tiny bit harder. Not start over or find a new goal but just try that little bit more to achieve this one. Take the love and support of this community all cheering you on and push that one bit harder. Do that every day this week and then on Saturday assess your progress. Hopefully you'll be so proud of yourself that you keep on going next week and voila, you have pushed through a hump and come out stronger.

I for one will be drawing from this motivation as I continue on my road to a fitter body (and gee wizz sometimes it feels like a rubbish road, but I'm determined not to let myself down this year, because after all, who else's body am I bettering?) and will update you on my progress.

---------------

Last week in THIS post we talked about enjoying little things in each day. I would love to hear in the comments if there was anything specific you enjoyed. Here are some of mine - Having Matt, Clare, Zoe, Alfie and Marcus be so supportive of my healthier life choices, listening to Darcy play her 'git-ar' and singing made up babybabble songs, watching YouTube videos in bed with Matt before we go to sleep and taking pretty pictures on my big girl camera- I should do that more. 

---------------

So two bits of comment 'homework' for you haha. What resolution/goal are you going to push a tiny bit harder on and what did you enjoy from last week's focused attention? Feel free to talk to each other in the comments and provide encouragement!

  1. I am going to push harder on my healthier lifestyle, and enjoying my life a little bit more. I take way too many things for granted, and I don't take time to focus on my well-being, even though I love focusing on other people's and trying to make them happy.

  4. I really love these posts! They help more than you know :)
    Honestly, my goals at this point are to just be a better me, and do better in all aspects of my life. I want to better my blog, my tendency to procrastinate (it's senior year and I'm having a hard time doing anything without waiting until the last moment), and most importantly myself! I am also really trying to focus on the things that I love so I can be happier and more motivated to actually achieve my goals.
    Last week I really tried to not worry about things that I cannot change, and for once I wasn't so stressed about absolutely everything, especially my swim meet that week! It really did help and I didn't notice until I didn't have the pre-meet jitters that achieve absolutely nothing. I found myself actually having fun! I have found life is so much better when you don't spend all your time worrying.
    Thank you so so so much for writing these posts, and for just being such an encouraging person in general! You are truly such an inspiring role model and I respect you so much for trying your hardest to achieve your goals even when it's hard to :) And for just being such a great person!

  7. I joined Slimming World back in September and only started blogging about it last week as I wanted to make sure it was working for me, and so far it's been going great for a lazy lump like moi. All I'm doing is eating and still managing to lose a couple of pounds a week. Last week I promised myself I'd start doing exercise but the week ran away with itself so that's my mission this week. Something, be it a walk, 20 minutes on the crosstrainer, anything because I need to push it up a notch and go with the January motivation while it lasts!

    Well done on deciding to get fitter because that's the hardest step, deciding and then actually doing it. When you start to see results, that will keep you going, watch this space!

  8. In general I'm working on making better choices about what food I put in my body. I'm trying to make more homemade meals that are balanced and I'm working on packing a lunch more often so that I don't purchase quick, unhealthy food. I'm also trying to make little changes like getting tea from Starbucks rather than my usual white chocolate mochas. The #glittergetsfitter on instagram has been helping me since I enjoy posting pictures of the new recipes I have been trying out. Keep up the good work Louise!!!

  10. This year I hope to find the right major at university for me. I started one last year but it turned out not to be what I expected. Today I am going to push just a bit harder to search and find the right major :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. When I went to university, I started out as one major but figured out in the first year it was not for me. So I took the coursebook (list of all the classes offered) and went through it without thought to a major and just marked all of the classes that sounded interesting. Turned out that the majority of checkmarks were in one major, and i had a lot of checks in two other areas. Then I sat down and researched a little about how I could turn the major (and what turned out to be my two minors) into a career afterwards. I enjoyed uni SO much more after that and was much more successful. Sometimes going at it 'backwards' can make it a little easier to find a direction. Hope that might help! =)

  18. I'm pushing to stay healthy! I'm a size 18 and although I love my curves I need to bring my blood pressure down which means I need to lose a bit of weight! I dieted for my first week last week and I've lost 5lb, I need to keep going, I think writing about it on my blog is definitely helping!

  19. About last week... Umm, I passed my exam at UNI, 1 out of 6, finally found time to meet with my friends, went to the gym once, started writing on my blog in two languages (Polish, which is mine first language, and English also) and bake incredibly good cakes - pretty much, right? :)
    I don't know what to push in this week, because yesterday I was told that I'm not going again to London in March, and I was dreaming about for like half a year (since I came back to Poland in August), so I'm down in the dumps :(

    lots of love,

  22. Keep it up Louise, you're my role model! Seeing your Instagram pictures about your walks makes me realise that I can do it too, I just have to push myself a bit harder! My goal is to feel comfortable in my body. Therefore I'm going to the gym at least twice a week and I even enjoy it! I hope it will stay like this for a loooong while! Hugs and kisses!

  30. I have three New Year's Resolutions, one of them are to bring the word Enthusiasm in to 2014 because I didn't have much of that in 2013... and I need to work a bit harder on that one because it's easy to forget.
    I also started this year with a sugerfree month, it's only been 13 days and I'm starting to feel the cravings for candy and cookies with my cup of coffee!

  32. You're so good at motivating, Louise!
    I'd love to just say 'Yes' to a few more things and not think about it too much, as that's when I start regretting things that I haven't done because I've been too anxious to.
    In short term resolutions - maybe I should stop drinking so much Diet Pepsi and fizzy drinks - I'll end up with no teeth otherwise!
    Happy Mondaaaay!

  33. I moved courses at university and at the moment I'm really struggling with an assignment that's based on all the stuff I missed. Thanks to this post (and the looming deadline) I'm going to pull my head out of the sand and into my books. Even if it isn't a good piece of work, at least I can say that I tried.

  34. These "Motivational Mondays" are really helping me to stay focused! I'm currently editing my FIRST EVER YouTube video and I'm researching guitars. That's 2 things from my 2014 goals list! Thank you Louise :)

  35. I am currently undergoing test to see if I have an underactive thyroid like my mum. I put on 3 stone in 6 months and now am on slimming world and can't shift any weight AT ALL. I can't stop dieting as I will just put on weight so quickly but it's sooooooooooo difficult to be motivated when it's impossible to lose weight! I'm hoping to start on thyroxin soon and hopefully then I will be able to make some progress. At the moment I won't leave the house except for work because I am so embarrassed about my weight. My motivation are my holidays this year. I need to lose the 3 stone for them. Wish me luck!

    1. Oh, Zoe! I wish you all the best. You are much more valuable than your weight: define yourself by all your values and accomplishments instead of the size of your waist. You are worth it! :)

    2. Good luck, Zoe! You can make it! <3

    3. Try not to let your weight keep you indoors - remember, if you're out walking around outside, you're keeping your metabolism moving and doing something active which is always good and may make you feel better. My mom has thyroid issues which I inherited and have finally kicked in at my age so I'm working through some similar stuff. Go, us, go! Happy 2014!

  38. Ugh!! I love this week's one so very much!! I am someone who starts giving up when things start getting a bit hard. In 2013 I learned that hard work pays off: not seeing immediate results is not a reason to give up. The results will come. The payoff will come. But it takes a hell of a strong willpower to get through the stages where it seems like it's all for nothing. I have to keep reminding myself that it isn't: I created my blog three months ago and in the beginning I was getting next to no views, and it was quite disheartening. However, I was so passionate about it that I pushed through and now I can see the results very slowly start to appear, and that just fills me with pride that I didn't give up this time!

    I am going to try harder to work out more days this week than I did last week... and another goal I've had is to start making youtube videos again which I am going to work really hard at as well! I'm excited- 2014 is going to be amazing.

  41. I've been meaning to start getting more exercise, but it's hard until I go back to school and have a gym at my disposal! So I'm going to do at least three yoga routines this week; I've been looking them up on youtube and I found some great ones!

  42. I've been attempting to be more positive lately but that was completely ruined on Friday by 2 different work related problems and then again today by yet another work related issue. It's rather annoying to start the day full of energy and being motivated only to have someone drag it all down but I guess I just have to keep at it as I can't change how other people act.

Today at work I wrote down on a scrap of paper a thought that was bothering me... then I crumpled up the paper and tossed it in the bin and moved on to working on something else. Felt pretty good. =) Might help you get started... worth a try anyway. =)

I had all but given up trying to be patient and kind and not let myself make things horrible for others, but then I plopped down to catch up on my blogging and read this instead, making me feel loads better and giving me a sliver of hope that I still have time to make things better.

  72. Having gotten to a certain age... ahem... I decided to finally learn from my many, many mistakes. First, they aren't resolutions, they're goals. I'm not resolving to do anything, I'm working towards something. (Makes it feel much less like failure when things move slowly.) I also decided to tier my goals... so I'm phasing into things instead of trying to cut it out all at once, crash, burn and back to my old habits.Sigh. This month I dropped fizzy drinks but am still allowing myself a certain amount of sweetened iced tea but reaching for water more often. Also, I used to compliment people randomly whenever I saw something I liked, but people get weird about compliments and I got discouraged. This week I'm sharing the sparkle and if others think it weird, well, it's their choice to be boring and not awesome!

  75. I am just like you Louise! Just trying to get fitter! And the struggle is real (haha)! Its so hard to keep myself eating right and well, because I dance the exercise part isn't a problem. To be honest, I have been getting a little (more like a lot) off course with the food. But I'm definitely going to try harder! And I really loved last weeks post because so many people say Mondays are so horrible but like you said, its like an opportunity to start anew!

    1. Dancing's so good through so you'll get fit easily. I know that losing weight is 80% nutrition and 20% exercise so the food side of it is REALLY important. You can do it though. If you just put your mind to it and think of the long term benefits you'll do it! I believe you can!!

  76. I know you can do it Louise! I feel that watching shows like Biggest Loser help you see the changes they go through and can motivate you to keep going and try harder :D You'll feel so much better and you've got the Sprinklerinos support all the way!

  77. I have two main new year's resolutions for this year. One of them was to sew more! I like to design my own pieces, and I want to create more unique things this year (short suit, anyone?). My second resolution was actually inspired by how great you are at updating you blog. My blog has been neglected a bit, and I wanted to be so much better with it. You have motivated me to continue with it, and I am very grateful. I wish you luck on your resolutions and hope you have a great new year!

  81. in no way is it a resolution, but I think its time I got a little fitter and tried a little harder to become the person I want to be aesthetically. I look at myself in photos others have taken of me and usually I hate what I look like, making myself feel low and rid myself of any confidence I may of accumulated. I NEED to be more positive too and true to myself. I think others think I am happy as I am so lively and cheery but actually its not always the case. Hmm, reflective post coming on I think!

Thanks for making me laugh with "personal agony aunt"... being (gasp) American, I had never heard that before and I won't even tell you what kind of thoughts were spinning round my wee brain before Google finally popped up with some context. LOL Lively happy peppiness can be a successful tool to distance people sometimes if you don't want to talk about what you're really thinking and feeling... but it's far more enjoyable when lively happy peppiness is actually what you're feeling. You owe yourself the latter. =)

  82. i've been lacking in the resolution department, have been stalling it until i get back into the routine of Uni. But for this week my goal is to get up early and begin revision when i get up.. i find i get more and more distracted as the day goes on! Well done for having the stamina with your goals! I wish I could achieve it!

  83. My resolution is a bit general but it's to basically change the things I wasn't happy with in 2013. I basically let life trample all over me and I got myself into some difficult situations. I felt very lonely and upset about life and this year I'm determined to start improving things and find what I really want to do with my life.

    I pray I manage to make some progress! x
    Good luck with your goals Louise

  88. This year is going to be manic! As of July I will have a teaching degree so fingers crossed as of September I'll have a job so I guess most of my focus has to relate to that and all the work that goes with it! Linked in I am definitely making it a goal to enjoy myself more, I am going to need a lot of happy days/ stress relief with my 2 dissertation, 1 essay work load this term!
    My other goal was to start a blog and now it's to work on it!
    This past week I have been really thankful to have my family about, you realise how much they do for you when you're not with them!

    I'm looking forward to what the year brings!

  90. Honestly, I've been very naughty and my resolutions have nearly gone out of the window, blogging is the only one I've actually followed through with.. oopsie. I definitely want to focus on becoming healthier and better though.

  98. I'm a huge fan of your videos and blog, Louise! Your motivational posts and videos ALWAYS get me pumped to do and try more! I love that type of support which can so easily be given on the Internet! Makes clicking around on the Internet every day worthwhile to people who think that it isn't haha. Good luck on your journey to be fit! Hope you succeed in doing so. Every little you do will make a BIG difference :)
    I have plenty of resolutions but, in a nutshell, I'd love to blog more and reach out to more people and find a dream career. It sucks to not feel inspired with nothing to work towards! I also want to reach out of my comfort zone a little more. So much so, I'm thinking about starting my own Youtube channel, haha. Have a good day :) xo

  100. Motivational Mondays is such a good idea! Mondays usually being a hard day it's good to have some reassurance and encouragement! I'm going to read through all your older ones!
    I've been trying this year to think positively and have been collecting some positive and encouraging quotes to remind myself with. There really is no point in dwelling on the negative or worrying to much about things that are out of our control. Life is too short!
    I have recently moved to a new (big) city where I don't know many people and don't really have any connections and have also been trying to find a job. It's tough to keep motivated and not get discouraged when you aren't always surrounded by friends and family.
    It is so encouraging to see what you, Zoe and others are doing and the community you've built online. It inspires me to figure out who I want to be!
    Thanks for this Louise! Looking forward to tomorrow's post!

  103. My aim is to love my husband better - or at least be better at showing my love. With a little one to look after it's easy to take our partners for granted. I want to get back into the habit of pursuing my husband like before we were married - little love notes, affectionate touches, acts of service etc etc.
