This time last month, I was really progressing with exercise,and starting to lose weight consistently again, and then life hit. Where did i go?
Its amazing how a few events can throw you off trackk, and no matter what this website or anyone tells you, it is up to you, and you alone to get or keep the motivation to get through and continue toward your goals, or let it derail you completely, or just put you at a standstill.
I was just halted, when my family suffered two deaths in the family days apart, in my family and then in my husbands. Not to mention we are struggling so much with our finances, as is most of the middle working class, and then after that, I managed to get the worst summer sinus infection i think i have ever had. well the list could go on and on. They could be called excuses , but drama can stop all progress, or you can fight it. This month i did not fight it , I let it stop all of my progress , and try to reverse engines.
Anyway what I have learned over over the past few weeks, is that i need to fight for everything if i truly want it, and what i do have i need to truly be thankful for. and this is in all aspects of life not just my continuing fight with diet and exercise. it just happened to be my diet and exercise that suffered over the last month. So when life happens at its hardest, I need to keep going and let event be momentum to go further no more derailment.
Today i am back and I cleared out all my monthly comfort foods, and called my trainer and apologized profusely for not calling. Believe it or not, I havent gained any weight over the month, I just lost out on momentum, consistency, and a flow of looking leaner and feeling better, which would have carried my thru had I let it in the first place.
So where did i go? I am not sure, but i am back for more , and we will not have to ask this question again:)
