I've lost my Mojo - Have you seen it?

Monday, February 10, 2014

From my last entry, I was gung-ho for the year to come. I am all in this - I know everything there is to know about what I need to succeed...

Yada, Yada, Yada.

It annoys me to no end seeing my scale go down 5 lbs and then up 3 and down 2 and up one - gah! I swear it must have a mind of its own. What is my body doing???? I have used 4 different scales and I see the same results.

These are good the facts I can clearly state:

1. I eat very well. Salad is the main course. I eat at least 5 fruits and veggies everyday. I take probiotics, vitamins, suppliments, omega 3 fatty acids, etc.

2. I avoid sugar.

3. I have cut back on meat, yet keep high protein foods in my system such as eggs, beans, etc...

4. I meditate daily & maintain a low blood pressure.

5. I have no known illness or diabetes.

6. I exercise daily.

7. I am everybody's best cheerleader. I can motivate the heck out of you & can lead groups into massive inspiration.

Here are the downsides to my lifestyle:

1. I have a hard time drinking water. It has to be cold & taste good, therefore I am dehydrated.

2. I don't get in 40 min of cardio, 5 times a week like I know I should.

3. I fell down the stairs several weeks ago causing some serious injury to my spine.

4. I am allergic to a lot of foods & extremely sensitive to most, so basically my body is full of poison.

5. I drink coffee & wine.

6. I have lost my "mojo".

I know, I know... Drink more water, cut the caffeine & alcohol, get more exercise. I GET IT! But I think that last one is the key. If you or anyone you know has found my mojo, please send it back. I would really appreciate that. Thank you!

    Keep moving forward…find out what works best for you food and exercise-wise. Each day make yourself a priority and continue to do that on a daily basis. Before you know it you will have strung many days together and are that much closer to reaching your goals. emoticon emoticon

    I don't believe you have to exercise 40min 5days to see results on the scale. Doing HiiT type workouts for just 12min/day will produce results. Examples would be Cathe F's x10 and Michele Dozois' Peak 10 workout DVD.

    If you were exercising and you can't now because of your back that would make a difference. Hope your back feels better soon!

    Have you ever tried eat to live 6wk plan that might help with the scale?

    Take the mojo back! You can do it.... most importantly don't give up!
