FIGHT FRUSTRATION WITH MOTIVATION


I know in the midst of frustration it's hard to be motivated. Especially when results aren't happening as fast as we may want them to.  Sometimes the feelings move past frustration straight into pissed off and angry. We can feel right out BLAH about it all.  

This is the time giving up may enter our brain. Questions like, “what’s the use” dominate our thought processes. We may even give up and return to old unhealthy habits. Sometimes, this defeatist attitude can come calling with a vengeance. Before the negative mental game takes completely over, consider fighting the frustration with motivation.



We are all fighting for our health and best self each and every day. Health is a process of small steps taken over time that provide big results. Just know each positive change to improve our health IS improving our health. 

Our bodies know something good is happening, even when we are unable to see it. It's during times of the unseen we must have faith in the process. Be motivated by the good being done to become a healthy person. 

Throwing in the towel and going back to old habits will create nothing but further unhappiness and frustration. It will rob us of all the effort accomplished so far. This is not the time to quit, but to stand strong in your efforts, and kick frustration to the curb with motivation.  



Fighting the frustration with motivation will require an inner strength all of us possess. It will be a choice to love ourselves at this moment no matter what a scale says. It will require a celebration of that healthy meal, a completed workout, a daily goal, a completed food journal, or whatever has been the most difficult struggle finally accomplished today.  

Having a positive attitude will fight off frustration one motivation at a time. Patience and a consistent habit of healthy eating and exercise will produce results. Begin to focus not so much on the goal, but what can be achieved today. This will minimize frustration and promote feeling motivated. 

The stress of trying so hard will be replaced by an inner peace of doing our best each day. When we relax about getting fit, health falls into place. Adopting that healthy lifestyle will eventually feel as natural as breathing.
