Struggling a bit; Stress.

I’m having the worst time staying motivated lately. It’s bugging the heck out of me. Most of my workouts feel forced, and sticking to my cutting diet has been a constant struggle. Most of the time I really look forward to working out, but over the years I guess I’ve been through a couple of patches like this before. I think the trick to getting back to my usual ways is to keep powering through and start building momentum. The hard part, of course, is getting the ball rolling again.

I’m pretty sure the root of the problem is stress. I’ve worked very hard my entire life to get to where I am, and the very real prospect of losing my job in this horrible economy is pretty scary. I know I need to do a better job of handling the stress; after all, it’s not like I can control what happens! Probably the worst thing I could do right now is to allow the stress I’m feeling to diminish my health.

I don’t mean to sound like I’m complaining, but I do try to make this journal a true reflection of my ups, downs, triumphs and struggles. Right now I happen to be struggling a bit, but I’m going to get through this and emerge tougher than ever!
