My fitness journey is filled with so many ups and downs, I should start charging admission for entry to the theme park! The downs are all due to my lack of motivation, though. I've never been the "fit type" and wasn't athletic in high school (I was the singer, not the sprinter). Making an active decision to make healthier choices AND *gasp* workout have me totally outside of my comfort zone. I've done Weight Watchers (who hasn't?) but I could never stick to it for more than 6-7 months or 30 pounds, whichever came first.
I'm sick of not being comfortable in my own skin and I really want to fit into a bikini this summer. You'd think that knowing that would serve as more motivation but I have my good days and bad WEEKS. My weigh in is tomorrow and, since 4 out of 7 days this week were me eating badly, I already know the scale will not be kind. I lost 4 pounds but I'm almost positive I've gained it all back with my binging. I tried power walking today (my first workout of the week) and couldn't even do 1/2 mile because of shin splints.
Suffice it to say, I'm pretty bummed out but also trying to stay on the realistic side. I didn't gain all this unsightly weight overnight so there's no way I can lose it that quickly; but isn't it nice to imagine?!
