I feel like it is hard to become motivated for something. I actually took a psychology class on motivation, but I still don't know how to fix my motivation problems. I'm going to try making a list of my excuses so that I can, maybe, think more seriously about them while I'm trying to think of an excuse. I'm not going to list any solutions, because I don't think that I should excuse my excuses at this point.

-being tired.
-too much homework
-grad school stuff
-the weather
-wanting someone to run with
-something good is on tv
-"I will in a little bit"
-waiting until too late, when I'm really, honestly, exhausted.

Those are the most common excuses. I think there are more, but I'm kind of stuck right now. I might add to this list later.

Goal: 1000 miles/365 days
So far: 80.68 miles/43 days
To go: 919.32 miles/322 days


  1. Part of it could be not getting enough sunshine this time of year so body not producing enough vitamin D. Normal problem for many people this time of year. Might try to increase dietary intake. Remember though that vitD is fat soluble so want a little fat intake w/ it.

  2. You could get a sunshine machine to get you motivated!!! ;)
