What a difference a few weeks can make...

Monday, May 16, 2011

I just went back and read my blog entry from week 5. I was kicking butt!! I was excited to be getting healthier and lose weight. I even wrote that I was starting to LIKE exercise!!! Whuck happened in the past 5 weeks???

I have been well, meh, in the weight loss department. I am having a hard time getting up to exercise and not making the best choices for food. I haven't even weighed myself. I weighed in a few weeks ago and had gained 3 pounds! How can the weight come off so slow but come back soooo fast?

Part of the problem is our hectic schedule. We have an activity pretty much every day of the week. I know, I know, crock pot schmock pot. I just haven't FELT like eating healthy. Or taking the time to prepare something. It is just so much easier to grab a hotdog at the ball field. Sigh...

If I have learned anything, it is that this is not easy. I need to put on my big girls panties and suck it up and move on...

    Remember-it's not how many times you fall down-it's how many times you get back up. Hitch up those big girl panties and get back on the wagon with us woman-it's not the same without you. We need the extra feet to kick the pirates off the plank!

    Baseball and allergy season seems to be taking a toll on all of us... power through it! I replayed week 5 for strength last week because I felt the same way about it. It was awesome. I felt great. After that I went downhill too. We can DO THIS! We have plenty of time left to kick our butts back into gear!!! TOWANDAAAAA!! ;)

    I'm going to steal a line from Ninja Kate, which got my butt in gear to do the strength challenge today: Happy New Year to ME!! Happy New Year to You - start again now. You can do it!

    I love new beginnings and new projects. I'm totally gung-ho at the beginning and then, once I get the hang of it all, I'm ready to move on to greener pastures. Is it possible that part of your problem is boredom? Is there something you can do to make it exciting again? I hit a similar wall and had to change things up for myself the past few weeks.

    I hope you find what will get you grooving again soon. We're all here to help if we can. Until then, I appreciate you exactly where you are - even that spot isn't such a good one.

    You are right in that putting the weight on is WAY easier than taking it off. We all have days when we are not motivated (recently I was sick for a couple days and it seemed like forever before I got back on my fitness track). It is far less complicated to eat a hot dog at the park. We all understand. As for sucking it up..........well you must still have a little voice in your head that wants to be motivated, that wants to eat healthy.... Why do I think that? You signed into Spark, You wrote a blog and you posted it. All you need is a little encouragement. So I hope this helps.....

    I used to use the same excuses ~ I'm not criticizing but I did! Then I started popping a bag of low fat popcorn or broiling a portablla mushroom & making a quick "burger". It can be done sweetie. AND emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Have a GREAT week!!!

    PS I love that ocean picture...
