What the frick is wrong with me....

Monday, September 29, 2008

So, I've been up and down on my weight for almost 2 years now. My third son was born October 11, 2006 and it's been a struggle ever since. I've had some health issues with a herniated disc. That is much better now, only hurts once in a while. I just have NO MOTIVATION.
I'm going to start again today (for the 500th time). I'm putting my BodyBugg on, sticking to my planned food, and getting a workout in. I think that's my main problem is I have no energy to workout. But it's a vicious cycle because if I would just workout... I would have TONS of energy. GRRR.

    winnie -

    an old chinese or japanese saying is " get knocked down seven times get up 8". you just have to keep trying.

    I know I didn't have any energy until it all started to come together. One big change I made was I cut out processed sugar (gradually, of course) and I think that really helped a lot.

    Check out Tosca Reno's clean eating plan - it really works!

    Good luck with everything

    I know how you feel. And working out is key!
    I can remember when I first started working out at 5:45 every morning, some mornings when the alarm clock would go off I just wanted to sleep in. But I would sit myself on the side of my bed and promise myself that if I would just go, I wouldnt have to work out so hard. Just get on the treadmill and walk at a good pace and not worry about all the sweating. And I would go. Then about 15-20 minutes into it, I would be running on the treadmill! So I would sort of trick myself into going. I love the pool and getting in the pool would always be a treat for working out. So, with the pool in the distance, I would jump on the treadmill and start. Then afterwards, in the pool I would smile at myself for getting up and doing it. Boy, was it ever worth it.
    You will see. This is a journey, its a hard journey, but it will be well worth it. One day you will look back and say,"I did that!!"
    Today is the day!

    You can do this. Nothing is wrong with you. You have 3 kids, just that takes a lot of energy.
    I know I am not one to talk as I have been away for a while and gained back alot of weight. ( maybe that is a good example not to follow... emoticon )
    But what use to help me, is to come here often. To be always surrounded by people that are losing weight and making the right choice.
    We can do it.
