The Seven Deadly Sins - #2 Sloth

sloth      

noun \ˈslth, ˈsläth also ˈslōth\
: the quality or state of being lazy
: a type of animal that lives in trees in South and Central America and that moves very slowly
 
I think it would be fun to write about the animal sloth... or even Sloth from the Goonies, but instead I'm writing about being lazy.
 
I'm lazy.
I know I'm lazy.
If someone tried to insult me and said "Geesh Holly, you are so lazy!"
I would say... "Yup. Duh!!"
I currently weigh more than I have ever weighed.
I work a part time job.
I sit on my a$$ most days watching ION television.
Back to back episodes of Criminal Minds, Blue Bloods and Ghost Whisperer.
ION is almost as bad as Netflix.
I have a membership to the Y and for awhile was going 5-6 times a week.
Then I stopped.
For no reason really.
I'm just freaking lazy.
If I was in the movie Seven with Brad Pitt, I would for sure be the person that was killed for being a sloth.
Even over gluttony.
I am not proud of it, but at the same time, it just is.
I know if I lost some weight, started feeling more in shape I wouldn't be AS lazy, but I have always been a couch sitter, television watching, kind of person.
I like going out and doing things.
Traveling.
But I LOVE being home.
I need to get that work out/get in shape bug again.
When I do get it... I do pretty well at losing weight and getting in shape.
It's just a mind over matter type of thing and right now... my mind is all sloth-like.
What are your main motivations to get you off the couch?
What do you do to not become lazy?
I just can't seem to get my mental focus on losing weight/getting back in shape.... and I don't know what to do.
So I will sit on the couch, with ION playing in the back ground and go to bed at 9.
Maybe I'll be motivated tomorrow.
Maybe not.
