Blue Team weekly challenge:5 Things holding you back

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

The five things that have been holding me back from my weight loss goals are first off major dental surgies! I have had ongoing dental work going on and an abcessed tooth for months and have been on pain meds which basically left me feeling like a zombie, the second is poor sleep habits-with all the meds I was taking I was not going to bed until 4 or 5am!, third would be my lack of support-I had a good family support system going on, but that went away and it's easy to get off track if your family is not on track with you, fourth would be my crazy schedule with the kids being home all summer-I had a really hard time finding time for myself, but now that school is back, it's been much easier and lastly would be me-my own mental state. I got so down on myself for being sick and busy and not working out that I kind of sent myself into a downward spiral. I am my own worst enemy, but nw I think I have my head back on track ;) My new goal for myself is to start doing more cardio! I hate it with a passion, but I am determined to start doing more of it!

    Thanks! FitMommy-I love circuit training and was doing great but I still have a lot more fat to burn off before you actually see the muscles underneath. :) I have been doing longer cardio/circuit training this week and seem to be loving it-so hopefully it will stick!!!

    Sorry to hear about all your challenges that you were facing over the summer! But I'm glad to hear that now that school is in session again you're finding yourself getting your head on straight again! =] My question to you - why cardio? If you hate it, why do it? =]
