Struggling but still determined

Sunday, May 23, 2010

I am not near as far along on my journey as I was hoping I'd be right now. I am still exercising, but not as much as I need to. I am still watching what I eat, but find that I slip more often than I should.

I don't know what's wrong with me. It's not like I don't have the motivation...I just let life get in my way and run me instead of running my own life. I need to get back on track and MAKE MYSELF do what I know is right.

I should have lost close to 10 lbs by now. I lost a lot the first week of my program (5.2 lbs) then gained back half of that the 2nd week and now here it is the 3rd week and I lost what I had gained the 2nd week. I am glad I'm not gaining every week and I am seeing a difference in the inches lost, but it just gets so frustrating to not eat the things I like and to be working out so much that it hurts and not see the results that I want.

Oh well, today begins another week and I will just have to work harder and be smarter about keeping my course.

    Hang in there!

    Begin finding the things you like to eat that are nutritious and good for you as well. Spark recipes are a great help in discovering great tasting food with fewer calories and high nutrition value. This is a life change experience not just eating stuff until you've lost then back to the bad stuff again.

    Find an exercise you really enjoy doing. Find something you can be passionate about. Even develop into a hobby.

    Don't just work harder work smarter. Use the nutrition tracker faithfully. Set realistic goals. Give your body a chance to change on its own in its own time. Learn to appreciate what it is doing in the change. It is not a matter of demanding a change from it but training our bodies in the right way.
