September 2010 (Need Encouragement)
Saturday, September 11, 2010
My last entry was in March of 2010. So much has happened since then and I'm sad to say that weight loss isn't one of them. Since I finally obtained a job in April 2010 and a new car in May of 2010 due to my job responsibilities, my weight loss routine has suffered. I am now in my own apartment again and have started working a PT job but spending most of my day in my car for my FT and being sedentary for my PT has taken its toll. I was in such good shape at the beginning of this year. I was able to do 1.5 hours of cardo and 30 mins of weight training each day easily. Now here it is September 11th and doing 10 mins of cardio is a strain once again.
I bought me new tae bo DVD a couple weeks ago but haven't even taken it out of the package yet. Each day that passes I say I want to get up and start making an effort but I have yet to do so. Really because of no other reason than I just don't feel like it. Sadly, I know if I get up and do my exercise, I know I'll feel more energetic. When I didn't have a car and I had to walk and/or take the bus everywhere, I was in much better shape. Now I think twice about walking to the dang trash can in my complex!
SP I need some motivation. Back in January, I really thought that by this time of the year, my weight would be way lower than what it is right now. I feel depressed that I'm still so overweight and it makes me just wanna eat more and say whats the point? I hate feeling this way because I remember a time when I was 200% motivated. I need some real motivation and encouragement Sparkpeople. I want to get back to that person I was in January 2010. I know that there are some changes that have occurred since then.....moved to another city, two jobs, a car, a busier schedule.....but this was one thing I didn't want to change and unfortunately it has. So I'm asking for some additional support to help me get back on track.
I have big goals I want to obtain but right now I just want to start small such as....stop stress eating, preparing healthy snacks to eat when in I'm in the field for work, getting into an exercise routine, etc.
Thanks in advance Sparkpeople
