Has Anyone Seen My Mojo?

It seems I have performed a dis-service to myself this past month.  Although I  knew it with each “bite”, this morning I let those dreaded scales confirm it.  My mojo has been laid aside and I must get it back!  I need to lose weight. Eight pounds, to be exact.  Eight may not sound like a lot….but eight quickly becomes 10, and…well….you know.  I  just don’t know if I have it in me to do it anymore!

So if you care to listen to the voices SCREAMING inside my head this morning,  here goes: I’m not a lazy person.  Not really.  I exercise.  Every. Single. Day.  I must do more. I mow and trim our lawn all summer; weed flowerbeds, pick up dog poop, clean, iron, go for walks, chase the dogs….but I must do more. I love snowcones and cherry cokes and pecan praline fudge. I can give up the fudge.  I have been shopping for a new exercise bike to help me burn more calories. Quit shopping, Paula….BUY IT. Use it!  Do more T-Tapp.  Ignore your swollen knee and push through it.  Maybe I should watch this season’s DVR’d Biggest Loser?  While I exercise.  I have a wedding to go to this weekend.  Do I dare try on my dress?

Okay. I know what to do.  Fitness. Counting Calories.  Eating more veggies. Cut servings in half. Drink more water.  I’ve been doing this stuff since I was 17 (and was first called a roly-poly).  I must find that place in my head again, that will give me the determination, motivation, and needed will-power.  I must lose my contentment.  I need stress.  I need my mojo back.

So the reason these words are here for you to read today, if you so choose and aren’t already bored outta your mind!….is for accountability.  I don’t care to share my weakness.  But if it will help me gain strength, then I am willing.  I hope I don’t regret this later.

So hide the brown sugar, baby……I’m gonna give this a try.  Again.  Anybody with me?

(and if you made it all the way to “here”….thanks so much for listening!) 😉

  1. Hey Paula….maybe we could have our own “Paula’s Biggest Loser” contest, and those of us who have it to lose, could support each other. The only problem is, I have more than 8 pounds to lose. i guess 8 pounds to you is like 25 pounds to me. But I’m with ya kid, if that helps!

    I feel your pain!

  3. I too had gained weight and was determined to take off 10 pounds. I started a diet (no junk food) and exercise (spinning) three times a week in January and by April the lbs were gone! I felt proud, healthy and fit!
    Now we’re in June, and I’ve rewarded myself a little to much and too often. I’ve also been to busy to exercise and so 5 pounds have snuck back… 😦
    Best of luck!

    • Thanks, Maggie….it’s amazing how those lbs do that…we shall see what happens. Today was 40 minutes of t-tapp and then mowing/trimming the yard. Smoothie (blueberries and plain yogurt) for lunch. Consistency…..we shall see 😉

    You took the words out of my mouth!! Thanks for that, I now know I am not alone!!

  6. Made it all the way ‘here” and totally with you – in the same exact spot, actually! 8, 10, 12 – it doesn’t matter, it’s just a push to get my head around starting in again. Or as you say, finding that space that will give you the motivation…right there with ya! let’s both find it!! 🙂
