It's Only 3 Things! I CAN DO IT!!!

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Going backwards but not giving up. What a struggle I am having. I need to get back into a fitness routine, and in the habit of logging my food. Every frickin' bite. And another thing, I need to get this negativity out of my head.

Food does not make me feel better, it makes me feel worse.

It's all coming back. Grazing. Afternoon binges. My pants are tight. I can't get out of my own way to get out of the house to exercise. I have things IN the house to exercise and cannot even get myself to doing that.

Bootcamp was like a religion for me. I haven't been in three weeks. Negative self-talk is in full swing.

I've struggled, but never this badly. I let sugar cravings win the best of me. I always managed to exercise. I need to break the cycle.

Has anyone been through this that can offer some advice? I know I can do this, I've done it before. I WILL NOT GAIN ALL THE WEIGHT BACK. I WILL NOT GAIN ALL THE WEIGHT BACK.

Part of the problem is that the weight loss obsession is over. My honeymoon with being in a size 10 is over. The thought of logging my food feels like a chore. It should still be a routine. Perhaps because I let myself get out of the routine. Maybe that's what I need to build up my routine again.

I ran a 5K with my husband and did horribly. Instead of celebrating it as a success I beat myself up over having to walk and finishing in 45 minutes. (it is 3.45 miles)

Plan of Action:

Get into an exercise schedule and stick to it.

Log EVERY bite!

Positive Self Talk!!!

Ok, it's only three things. I can do this! I can do this! I can do this!

    I think Audreyes03 advice is a great start. I was in the same situaion during winter. Self-Sabatoge all over the place and no motivation. Feeling like crap yet not doing anything about it. To get me going, I had to FORCE myself to run.... and it wasn't pretty, but I did it and felt better after. In fact, I had to force myself through several workouts to get back into routine. I didn't give it everything I had during the workouts, but I still did them and started feeling better and better after each one. As far as negative talk... I'm the Queen when it comes to that. I started listing 3 things I was thankful for. Didn't have to be things about me personally, but just three things. That got me thinking on a more positive level in general which helped. You are right... You absolutely CAN do this and we will be here cheering you on!!!

    I have been there. its gotten the best of me before, And I have beaten it before. One thing I did that worked well, is to purge the house with the unhealthy snacks. Don't think about it, don't worry about wasting it, just do it. If its unopened packaging, give it away if you want. But get rid of it.
    I also made the decision to do it just today. Stay on my routine just for today. Drink my water just today.. ect. After 1 day, I felt so much better that I wanted to continue for another day.
