I've lost the Spark! Time to Reset and Restart.

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

After some great legs strength training followed by 40mins kickboxing on Monday, I fell into a slump. The next day I didn't exercise. Instead of panicking, I sat and thought about the problem.

I've lost my motivation. I've lost the spark. emoticon

This isn't the first time, but at least I've realised what's happening before it's too late. This time I won't be regaining 15lbs before getting back on track. I'll be losing 15 instead.

Since January's plateau my motivation has plummeted. I commit to something and then quit when results don't come in a few days. It feels pointless if the scale and measurements stay the same. However, I won't waste any more time! If I want to meet my goal then I can't do this anymore. No more sulking about where I could have been (120lbs...). I must decide if I want to be there or not.


I have reset my articles and returned to Sparkstage 1. I did this last January and it took me from 160lbs to 125lbs, so it WILL work again. This is the year I will make it!

    good for you!!! Congrats on figuring that out sooner and what you need to do to fix that. I had lost the spark over a year ago, way too long and a 25 lb weight gain. so, remember you don't want to be like me. ;) I found the spark again and made up my plan in January. I have been back on track for more than a month and have lost 6 lbs. More importantly, I feel better, stronger, healthier, confident, and the list goes on.

You can do IT!!!!! emoticon
