Lately, I have been putting everything off. I stopped joining in on most of the forum challenges I was once a part of. I keep saying that I will do this or that when dh gets a job. Only thing is, we don't know when this will be, sooo I need that extra push to get me back into some type of routine, and motivation again.

Can you help me? :)

First of all, lets not feel guilty about not participating in challenges on the net. There is life other than the net and sometimes we get so bogged down with challenges, that we forget there are other things in life to enjoy.

I think its just that time of the year, when everyone is so wanting spring to be here, when we want to be doing things outside. I think thats just our makeup, we don't want to be in the house all the time.

Jenn, take each day, "one day at a time". Its okay if we don't always do the things we said we would. To cheer you on, pick one thing you want to do and work at doing that. Forget the pressure of the rest, kwim. There have been days when I've taken "one hour at a time". I've learn that its okay!!! Its taken me a long time to get to where I am.

One thing that will really perks a person up is some excersise. It doesn't have to be by tapes or videos. Go for a nice walk around the block, enjoy nature.

Just know where here for you to cheer you on. Let us know what you've started on and will encourage you all along the way.

Cj always has the best advice and Mel is a great cheerleader. I completely agree that it's ok to take it one day/hour whatever at a time. When I'm feeling a bit blue it's my nature to want to stick my head in the sand. I have to make myself "work" out of it or I get stuck there too. So just grab those boot straps and do something, even if it's only part of a job (whatever it is). You'll feel better and see that you can untrack and get going again.

I agree, you just have to start something and stay to stay with it....... Once you get going, it will be easier ........ Hang in there hon !!!!!!!!!

Yep, I agree with Carolyn, sounds like spring fever, I've been going through it too. Just relax and don't put so much pressure on yourself, take on little tasks, get outside and enjoy the nice weather, etc. The housework and other stuff can wait! Take care!
