So, I find my motivation sometimes good and sometimes lacking. I just can't get it to seem to "click" into place like it was before - where I felt more committed. Not sure what changed - but I need to get it back. I've gained 5 lbs over the past 2 weeks simply from not watching what I eat and not exercising enough.

Ugh!! Frustrated with myself. It took me much longer than 2 weeks to lose those 5 lbs to begin with!

Next week (or maybe this weekend) I am going to re-start the 5K Training program, and I'm hoping that helps somewhat. I think I also need to start cooking again more. Seems like I was eating much healthier when I was.

    I know this is frustrating - to slip back when you've just made progress. Sometimes I have to go back to the VERY basics - yes, I CAN eat two servings of fruit today; yes, I CAN exercise for 10 minutes - in order to get back on track. Hang in there!

    You can do this. It happened. In spite of my intensive efforts at both my physical activities and my eating, I have plateaued for a while. We just must keep going. Remember you need to do this for YOU!! Remain blessed.

    I think it is normal to lose some of your motivation along the way but it sounds like you are going to get back on track and I am sure you will do great! Just look at your long term goals and try to stay as positive as possible. I have faith in you!!! emoticon
