Week 25… No Loss… No Gain… No surprise. 

So I shouldn’t be shocked that I didn’t lose anything this week when I committed to getting back on track. I did go to the gym several times but I still haven’t changed my eating habits back to the way i was doing. 

I don’t know what it’s going to take to get my eating program in check. My stress levels are still high even after Strides, Bowling for Boobs and weekly bowling. I have to find a better outlet or management system for them. TV is a good escape but I sit there at night and want to eat because I’m bored.  Working out only works when I actually go to the gym. Last week I had a stressful Tuesday so I didn’t go to the gym. That’s the time I should be going to the gym the most. 

I don’t understand where this lack of motivation came from. Maybe I need a break from some of my extra activities. That is easier said than done especially since I’m in the middle of seasons. It was easier to focus during the summer because there was no bowling, and no Relay For Life and the sun was out later. 

Do I need to go in the morning? Maybe… as long as I focus on my meal plan. I have to get back to fruit more often as well. I keep eating junk. I didn’t earn the junk food I’m eating so I need to stop. 

What keeps you motivated? 

What things have you changed once you noticed an increase?

I’m hoping I can get my head back in the game. 

Have a great week.

Week 24… 6 months in! Motivation is back!

I know last week I was complaining about not being able to find my motivation but I think I found out after I had a solid workout for once.

This past week I went to the gym on Monday…Tuesday…Wednesday…Friday and Sunday. The past 4 previous workout sessions during the week were just boring and plain. I seemed to just be going through the motions. Sunday’s workout was different.

I went to the gym on Sunday after watching football. I really had a good session. I felt great doing it and then strong after i finished. I remembered how well it felt to push myself hard. Really got a great sweat going. That is what i needed to get my motor running again.

I can’t believe it took me this long to get back on track. I know that my skin cancer sidelined me for a few weeks, but I’m a survivor so upward and onward I go.

I already have started planning how I’m going to attack this week and plan on seeing a difference on the scale this upcoming Saturday. I can’t wait!

How are you going to make a difference this week?
Have a great night!

Week 23… Where’s my Motivation?

I had a minor loss last week of only .2lbs. I just can’t seem to get my motivation back. I know that I want to get back at it and yet I can’t. 

I keep drinking soda. I’m back to at least 2 a day. I need to seriously leave my wallet in the car and force myself to not buy anything. I don’t know why I slipped. It took me originally 5 weeks to give it up last time. I hope it doesn’t take that long this time. 

I know just getting back to a normal routine will help with that. Strides was this past weekend and it was rough but I made it through. Now is the best time to get back to weight management and focus back on my goal. 

I’m going to start with having a small goal of losing 5lbs. Once I start working out, I will then start pushing myself harder to get the weight off. I originally wanted to lose 50lbs by the end of the year, since I did lose 30 this summer I’m going to have to work harder to get the gained weight off along with hitting my goal. 

I’m up at least 14lbs over the past 5 weeks. I’m done feeling sorry for myself. My nose is healing quite well so I can’t feel bad about it anymore. It’s time to focus!!!

I can do this!

Have a great week

Week 22… I’m on the mend still

Hey there everyone! I wanted to let you know that I’m still on the mend from my surgery. I’m finally starting to feel better and next week I’m going to start working out again. 

I’m taking this week off even though I am doing a 5k on Saturday and then a breast cancer walk on Sunday. 

Let’s hope that next week is better. 

Have a great week
