New year New Plan

Friday, January 09, 2015

I am struggling ! I reached a plateau in March of 2013 and got stuck ! It really really frustrated me ! I just kept plugging and doing the same things but then I got bored so I tried some ST . I hadn't done that much of that.... It was tough. I was killing myself doing these on the floor exercises that took a lot out of you . I felt better and stronger but it was so much work and I didn't like it or enjoy it like my cardio. I got burnt out !
slowly and more and more I started eating more foods then My shoulder started hurting. I relaxed on working out with weights. I stopped doing any form of exercise.
Then my brother had health issues and life just sort of butted in and I let my focus slide.
In September of 2014 I fell down some stairs and re injured an old knee and Its not been the same since. I keep thinking it will get better but if I shop too much or stand too much I limp by the end of the day and then my back starts hurting !
I know this sounds pretty whiney but I am mostly just documenting for myself so I can look back and remember this journey and what went wrong.

Its 2015 and I ended 2014 with a yearly gain of about 20 pounds and that's just not acceptable to me. I am ready to remove those 20 pds and to figure out what its gonna take to push past that to remove MORE weight . That 20 pd mark represents my lowest weight in a while and I 've got to somehow figure out what I have to do to push past that or I am doomed. I cannot continue to stay " stuck" !!!! I am sure that the problem is me and somehow some way I am gonna have to get inside my head and fix it !

thanks for listening and I appreciate any feedback !

    emoticon I hit that plateau at the half way mark the same as you did (roughly the same time too)and although I've managed to not gain a significant amount of weight back I am so tired of re-losing the same ten pounds again and again. It's back to basics for me, diet and exercise works but one needs to change their whole lifestyle permanently and that seems to be the sticking point for me.

    Christine - great idea about a look back blog - I feel like i am doing that more and more lately! I never want to forget all the goods and the bads - it is all part of our Journey and each step we take - either forwards or backwards will get us there!!
