My balancing act.
Friday, April 27, 2012
I did not expect to feel this frustrated after the relative success that I have had. I know the problem is balance, after all, isn't a weight problem really a balance problem? I eat too much, I don't exercise enough. Balance.
I keep having to adjust my exercise goals because I am not consistent with it. So should I set my goals based on the REALITY of my exercise or based on my seemingly realistic, but not always obtained goals. I either don't meet the calorie burn goal at all or blow it out of the water. Balance.
Some days it's the same with my food. Some days it is after 8 pm and I have 300 calories left to consume to meet the minimum, and I am not even hungry. Other days, I have met my max calorie goals by 4 pm, and I'm still hungry, AND I can't go to bed for another 7 hours or more. I have SEVEN hours to either feel hungry, or guilty. I just can't seem to find a good balance.
It has been almost 3 weeks and I have gained and lost the same 2 pounds. Don't get me wrong, I am sooo thankful that it is only 2! I researched plateau, I looked at my exercise, and my diet. I am completely out of balance. I started Sparking on January 15, 2012. I was so excited to have a FREE resource to help me get control of this, and I enthusiastically began to exercise more. I enthusiastically (and much to my husband's displeasure) cleaned out the pantry. i went from one extreme to the other-- that darn balance again.
My question is how do I find balance?
