~Feeling Overwhelmed~

Monday, September 03, 2012

I don't usually post these things but I'm feeling frustrated, stressed and a little crazy right now so I thought typing my feelings out might help a little. I did so well for so long with my eating right and exercising every single day and then... I fell off the wagon and I can't seem to get my motivation to come back and stay back. I always tell myself I will get up early and exercise- whether it be walking outside when it's nice or logging some time on the elliptical- and then I hit snooze too many times and end up not having the time. Some days I do great with eating well and then some days- like this past weekend- I do terribly. I am obsessed with ice cream and sometimes I just can't say no to it. I know I've probably gained a pound or 2 but I'm scared to get on the scale to see the damage I've done. I'm just so mad at myself for eating this way and being so lazy lately. I am super stressed because of my job and our financial situation and I've been taking it out on food- by overindulging. I was just wondering if any of you Sparkers out there have been through this same situation as far as falling off the wagon and how you got back on permanently. Thanks for any advice you may have.

    I have fallen off the wagon and gotten back on time and time again, and there is one thing you need to remember:

I just actually posted my own blog about being stuck and unmotivated.
It is tough when you are going through stressful times. Part of what gets me back on is to remember it is all about moving. I like to sweat. I like to push myself hard. I like to think that if I start today, my goal body will be here tomorrow, but we know it takes time and there will be hiccups along the way. But just move. That easy. Start off with a walk or something small and you will get that workout high again and get back on track.

You can do it!
