Motivation

I seem to have lost all motivation in the last few weeks; the house works getting on top of me since we’ve had this lovely weather its been put to the bottom of the to do list which is fine but now its got too much; i have been eating far too much rubbish far too often and although it feels good at the time i always feel cr*p after; in general i just feel like I’ve become a little bit lazy! I know how can u be lazy with 3 kids right?
