Day by day….

Thursday, September 29, 2011

So lately I have been struggling to stay consistent in my journey. I mean I haven’t completely fallen off the wagon I still exercise 3-4 times a week but my eating is so inconsistent. I’m just maintaining my weight loss instead of losing weight. I feel like I loss motivation, that drive that I had in the beginning when my heart was really in it and nothing would stop me from going to the gym or temp me to eat something I knew I shouldn’t. It’s like I know what to do but I’m having a hard time doing what I need too. I haven’t lost the motivation to exercise I feel like I could and should be doing more...... My problem now is being consistent and stepping my game up to move forward from this plateau. It’s like some days I’m so motivated too break out of the slump and others days I’m not so….. I got to find my way back. I feel like I lost sight of my goals when the compliments and comments started when I shared my journey with people who don’t understand the struggle. So here I am at a stand still for months so where do I find that motivation to keep going. With my big 30th B-day quickly approaching I’m starting to reevaluate a lot of things in my life and my goals and where I want to be in the future. I know it all begins with my health, your health truly is your wealth and I want to live a long healthy life. So again it’s back to the basics of what I know will get me where I want to be tracking, cleaning eat, and exercise and I’m not going to let the success of how far I’ve to be my motivation because I get too comfortable I need to focus on where I want too be not so much how long it will take me to get there. So this blog has help me to put things in to perspective I guess that’s why I should do it more often. So for now as for me I’m back to the basics taking it day by day….

    I understand. It's hard breaking through the plateau times. I like to try a new workout, change something in my schedule (the times i work out, eat, snack, etc), eat something different (try some new foods for lunch or snacks)...just change something. It might propel you forward.
