So, let me set this on the table. I've been on here for a couple of years now, and I have diet burnout.
I resent not being able to eat the foods I want WHEN I want them and in the QUANTITIES I would like. There are some treats I love that would shoot more than an entire day's calorie allotment at one meal (Steak n' Shake, I'm looking at YOU.).
I have exercise burnout. My get-up-and-go got up and went on me, and my joints are getting all stiff again. Yes, I know that's bad. Unfortunately, the stretches the physical therapist gave me way back when hurt like crazy to do, and they didn't really help much with the basic pain issues I was having.
I'm traveling a lot this year. Sparkers, you KNOW what a challenge it is to stay on track when you're on the road. I'm trying all the local foods and NOT logging the stuff I eat.
It's taking what little energy I have left over from book promotion to resist chucking the whole program... especially when my metabolism seems to have reset to where I need to stay under 1600 calories not to GAIN weight. And yes, it is starting to inch up.
Can this Sparker be saved?
