First of all, sorry for being MIA for a while! I've missed all of you!
As I said on my status update earlier today, I feel like I've finally gotten my spark back and it makes me so happy! Lately, I feel like I've been going through the motions but I haven't felt very inspired or motivated. I've been going through a lot over the past couple of weeks and I felt exhausted both mentally and physically.
Going through this made me think of something I think is very important. I think most people go through periods of high and low motivation. I know I do! In the past, going through a phase like this when I just don't feel motivated and the spark seems to be disappearing I used to just give up and go back to my old unhealthy ways.
But not this time!!
Even though I was going through a period of very low motivation, I kept going tracking my food (most of the time) and making (mostly) healthy choices. I still managed to lose two pounds and stick to this thanks to the momentum of the past few months. I think that is SO IMPORTANT when you're trying to turn your life around!! That makes all the difference in the world. In the past, I would have given up, but now I know it's okay to go through difficult times and it doesn't mean I have to - or get to - throw it all away.
I decided to just wait it out. I knew it would pass eventually, and it did! Today I woke up in a great mood, excited, motivated and SPARKED! I feel very motivated to start paying more attention to my health again and keep working at this.
I've changed so much over the past five months or so! It's really incredible and it motivates me to keep moving forward along this road to health.
