Struggling

Monday, September 12, 2011

After completing my triathlon in July I decided to take a small break from the crazy workout routine. The problem is I haven't been able to get back on track. I have tried to adjust my eating habits back to what they need to be since I am not exercising as much, but am really struggling with it. I can feel myself slipping back into some of those old bad habits.
I am also not exercising as much, which is partly not my fault as the swim team takes 2 weeks off and the gym is closed for it's annual cleaning. Now they have the swim team schedule for winter out and it looks like I will have a hard time attending at the time scheduled, but I love swimming and know that it is great exercise for my body. So I have to decide if I can add one more thing to my already full morning routine.
I am hoping I can find the right balance of food and exercise again so I can loose the last 20 pounds I want to loose.

    You are doing awesome. I bet before you know it you will be back into your good eating habits and exercise routine. I am sure you have had the same issues as I with school starting and being busier than in the summer. That big of a change messes things up and is out of our control. I find that if I don't have a race scheduled that people seem to fall back into old habits. I find excuses for pushing back workouts more than if I had a race scheduled. I like to sign up for a race and that way I can't push the date back for my goal. Before I went back to really running and signing up for races I would set a goal date and find an excuse to not do what I needed to do. Then half way to the date I would push it back and say I would commit again but would do the cycle over again. This April I stared with a goal for October and found little races in the middle to keep my motivated and training. Now I am 3 weeks away and realized I have no goal after this one for my races/training. So I am off to find another one. Good luck and I think you are doing better than you realize!

    Good luck and I know you will get there. Just keep "sparking" and try not to define today based on yesterday. It doesn't matter what you did then, how fast you did it, how often you did it or the like. Rather, it is about today. Today is the day that you live in and only it matters for your "routine."
