Why can't I be motivated like this every day?

Sunday, January 22, 2017

I was really motivated today and took full advantage of it. I got in a workout this morning, I got lots of cleaning and laundry done, I made dinner for both tonight and tomorrow night. I am never this motivated and I wish it would continue.

I understand that my lack of motivation during the week is due to my work schedule. This is the first time in 16 years that I have had a Mon-Fri 8-5 (ish) job. My schedule changes from week to week, like this week I work until 6 pm. By the time I get home around 7 pm and have dinner and hang with the family, I have no desire to work out. The weekends are usually busy, but I know that I have time to work out, I just don't push myself to do it. I need to just get up and do it, no excuses.

This week is my last week of my orientation at work. I'm excited to be on my own but I know I will have lots of support as I work with a great team. I truly love my job and am grateful to work with the patients that I have. Being an oncology nurse can be rough but it is worth it to see my patients celebrate on the day of their last treatment. Those are my absolute favorite days.

I hope you all are doing well. Thanks for reading and have a great day!!

    I hear ya about loosing motivation in the evenings. I'm not a morning person, but when I started working out in the mornings it was SO good! I didn't feel rushed and it was a great start to the day. Unfortunately I can't do mornings atm, so I'm doing a lunch time work out. Feel a little rushed, but at least I'm getting it done! Hopefully you can find something that works for you!

    I love days like that. I wish they were more frequent for me too.
    It is tough, for sure to work long hours and then push yourself to workout. If the big guy wasn't working out with me and depending on my being there, I'd skip it often. But he is so I don't. That's the only thing that helps me.
    Good luck and maybe you'll be having more and more of these days!

    Sounds like a winner of a day -- keep in mind when they don't quite add up to all that!

    I find changes in schedule challenging too... And motivation? well it just doesn't measure up to routine. At least not for me. If something is routine I don't need motivation. Good luck!
