struggling again


Saturday, June 20, 2009

I haven't completely fallen off the wagon (or have I?) but my feet have been dragging for a while now. I'm still running and working out but not nearly as often or with the intensity I know I should be. I haven't been logging my workouts or meals or even visiting SP for that matter. I've also gained 5 pounds, which is no surprise considering how I've been eating! I blame it all on my computer breaking down over 2 months ago but that sounds like an excuse, No Excuses!

I'm hoping by writing this that I can snap myself out of this ugly rut and start to get back the motivation and enthusiasm that's been lacking.

This is Day One (again) emoticon

    I am back here again. I am day one or rather week one. Time to get out of this rut for me too. I am at 210, I was at 199. I am studying procrastination, and I AM a study in procrastination. I am noodling this out with my son-in-law who is a practicing clinical psychologist. The question is "What am I taking pleasure in now that negates what I know is right that is in the future." Like I said, I am noodling this out. When we don't do something that we know is "good for us", there is some pleasure we are enjoying in not doing it. We exchange the large pain and consequences of the future for the pleasure of the moment. Okay, that's enough... Get with it, I just logged my food for the first time in a few months.

    Patty,
I wanted to send some encouragement your way. I know it has been over a month since your new day one but thought it would be great to say hope you are doing well and that you have stayed on track. I have been lax in my tracking also and you gave me some encouragement to begin again so Thanks!
Wishing you well!

    I am right here. Lethargy and lazy-ness and eating too much and not tracking. It is a syndrome. I have had 7 pounds sneak back on in the last 10 weeks. Probably more fat and less muscle too. Thanks for sharing your problems as well as your victories. Together, the great "we" can get back in sync.

    I think we all struggle. But you have made tremendous progress. I know it is discouraging to backslide a bit. I like your emoticon. "Day 1". Good Luck!

    Starting over is always an option. Do you have an event you are training for? Maybe having a date for "the next race" will get a fire started in you again.

    Hi I am sorry that you struggled, I am glad that you blogged and my wish and prayer for you is that you get your Spark and energy back!

You can do it; I know you can, if I can do it anyone can. I now that it's an old saying but it is true.

"I feel passionately about my life, and this passion fills me with excitement and energy"
