For the past month I have thought a lot about losing weight.

So much thinking.

Thoughts. I have so many of them.

And then I go to the internet and search for motivation, calorie intakes, new ideas, things I haven't tried.

Just last week I purchased a package (online) for Cross Fit: Primal Energy to kick my butt back into gear. I was once an athlete afterall. Have I used it? Nope. Is the gym less than a mile away? Yup, totally.

So what's stopping me? I feel like I'm in this funk, this malaise, like there is a fog all around me.

The past year has been very stressful and when I quit my stressful job last July I really didn't start the "new life" I had planned. Instead, I hopped on the couch and "relaxed" for as long as I could. Up until now, really. I think I did need a break. I think I really did have exhaustion. But shouldn't it be healed by now?

I have this feeling that if I just get to the Cross Fit gym ONCE I will be hooked and want to continue. It's just getting there. There's always work or errands or art to make... so I end up putting it off until tomorrow. Or, let's be in honest, if I ended up partying or drinking too much the night before. That will keep me at home.

Ugh! I am disgusted with my lazy self right now.

    I know exactly what you mean. I've been in that same funk for the longest time. I actually only broke through it this past weekend. I only lost a half pound, but it proved to me that I can do this. The loss was hard won, and I am determined to keep it. I've found that setting little goals and reaching them gives me the boost to attempt the bigger goals. Also you are not as lazy as you think. Try investing in a pedometer. Wear it during the day as you do errands and other household chores. You may find that will give a boost of motivation when you need it, not to mention how far you really walk in a day. Combine excerise time with self reflection time. That way while you work out you can think about your day, plans for later, etc. You can do this! All journeys begin with a small step.

    don't give up, it is so worth carrying on with this weight loss challenge and you will most certainly see benefits if you continue with it.
    Just take every meal time as a challenge and look at it as something fun to do. Can you avoid temptation today? will you allow yourself a treat every once in a while? How much activity can you achieve in ten minutes? Ironing, housework...it all counts!
    So keep going and love yourself just as you are , all you need is to love yourself as you are and go from there!
