Need Tips on NOT getting BURNED OUT. Need Advice Please!
Thursday, April 19, 2012
I've always struggled with burn out. Whether it be from exercise or eating healthy. What I mean by this is that I always get SO energized and motivated after a long hiatus from being good to my body that I over do it. Anyone else do the same? I will get on the elliptical like 5 times a week, feel great, and then all of the sudden I just feel I can't do it anymore. Or, I will try a diet, record my food, and after a period of time it hits me that I am exhausted and miserable from doing both. How do YOU make this a LIFESTYLE? As opposed to a bleep in time, hobby, or experiment. What does "moderation" mean to you? What's too little and what's too much?
I have been away from sparkpeople for a while. While I was away I gained 10 pounds back which is not horrible but I am one of those people that it takes A LOT to get a few pounds off. So 10 is disheartening. I want to do this the "right" way so that I do not get burned out and want to give up. Need advice! Thank you in advance.
