It's always a good day to start over...right?

warning....boring alert....I'm trying to refocus myself yet AGAIN...

I've been in such a rut lately and am having trouble climbing out. No real reason...just kind of "meh". Lately being a couple months. I was so close to my next goal of weighing under 200lbs in March...and then I zoomed back up. I sat at 210 for a while, down to 206, back up to 208. I need to get this weight loss ball rolling back downhill. to do this. Sigh. That is always the tricky part.

I've been thinking a lot about this in the last few days and, for me, it really comes down to consistency. OK, not exactly an earth shattering revelation. Add some motivation to that....sustained motivation and consistency.

I need to stop thinking / planning and just freaking DO IT!
I have a new interval training app---USE IT
I have a gym membership with classes--USE IT

I've been exercising almost daily--but not always really pushing myself. The recumbent bike is great for adding up miles for the 2012 challenge but I also need to pick up the intensity. I have a body bugg and I have it all charged up and on my arm (key!). I need to use this tool to help get me moving.

It is the first few steps / first couple minutes that I have such a hard time overcoming. Once I'm moving I do great. I have trouble getting started. Maybe this will change with time but I'm definitely not there yet!

I'm setting the bar high for this first month as I have a couple important events!
20th High School Reunion is June 16th
Wedding Dress Fitting is June 22nd

I want to be under 200 by the dress fitting....will be hard but I want to really focus on this goal as it means a lot mentally/emotionally. Such a silly thing to be so attached to a number....but this is something I've been fighting with for a while so I'm going to focus right on that number and make it happen.

Rawr. That is how I feel right now....and I need to figure out a way within me to keep this motivation. Rawr.......

    You can do it!! Like you said, the hardest part is getting going. After that, it's easier to keep it going. I just re-started about a month ago. I had regained about 30 of the 55 lbs I had lost last year. But now I'm back on track and feeling great. And I know you can do it too.

    It is ALWAYS a good day to start over! Take time to stop and reflect for a minute on why, take a deep breath, give yourself a little pep talk, and dive back in! Keep in touch with all your SparkPeople buddies, and when you need extra motivation, never be afraid to ask for it. We're all in this together, and you'll definitely get the support you need to push that motivation back out from its hidey-hole! It's hard to keep going. But you can do it!
