getting engaged...with myself

Something has been off with me for a while now and I've been ignoring it...

I'm just not interested, in anything.
Lately, my day consists of waking up, complaining that I don't want to go to work, going to work and sleep walking through my shift.  Then driving straight home after work and spending the evening on the couch playing games on my iPad/iPhone.  Those of you who have followed this blog for a while know that's not like me...

I had a long talk with someone I consider to be a mentor last night and she basically told me to snap out of it.  No one is going to hand me a magic pill that will make me happy.  I need to get engaged.  I need to try harder, to go the extra mile at work, ask for more, put myself out there.  I need to eat right and exercise regularly.  

I'm going to try a new mantra that I picked up from another blogger, Go Do!  

Instead of thinking about things, plotting & planning things I'm going to get up, say something, do something.  I'm still going to take time for myself and time to connect with Joe on a regular basis but no more sitting on the couch for hours alone eating candy and bitching/moaning.

I know it's not going to be easy, I've been harboring some bad habits for a while and it's so easy to take the low road.  But I've got a great support system that wants me to be happy and succeed.

Do you have any advice on how to shake off a major funk?

  1. I'm in a similar slump when I'm at school. Just not motivated and I'm letting it win. I like that mantra you found! One of the things I'm doing to fix this problem is getting rid of the internet at my apartment there. It will keep me from spending hours on the computer or in front of the tv (hello Netflix). I'll have to be more engaged with school, on campus more, more committed to my work just to keep busy. So I guess, my advice would be to make it inconvenient to slack off or put away those things that distract you. (A few months back, I caught myself playing a game on my phone a lot- way too much- so I deleted it. Problem solved).

    I hope you find a way out of your slump!! And get back to the gym girlie! That should help kill some time :)
