The Constant Challenge

I've been fighting to lose my extra weight for years. I am always successful in losing the weight, but not so much in keeping it off. This has to be the last time I go through this. I need to finally lose the weight and feel good about my body.

Two years ago my husband and I started running races. We ran a half marathon in September 2013 and let ourselves go after that. We are now getting back in shape and signing up for more races.

I agree it would be much easier if your schedule didn't fluctuate as much. But hang in there and I agree with Iamzbee on a short yoga work out on your late evenings after dinner may be an option that way you still worked out but nothing intense right before bed.

Yes! I bet a quick little yoga routine can really help warm you up. Give it a go! Bummer about the caffeine thing. Probably better for you in the long run away. Haha!

Oh man! That is rough. I, too, need some time to wake up before diving into a workout... probably why I've been unconsciously sabotaging myself. Have you tried adding in a pre-workout or something with caffeine?
