Day 5 - Unhappy

Sunday, December 16, 2012

I honestly don't know what's wrong with me. It's like I can't get the motivation to get back on track again. I try and I try and yet I fail every time. Either I do well with my eating or I do well with my exercising. It seems like I can't do well with BOTH. And I know some of you might say to take it one step at a time and I'd love to...but I've tried that with my exercising and I just ended up gaining weight. Same the other way around. So it obviously didn't work. I need to do both and yet I can't seem to do so!

I use to be so good at watching my calories but now I seem to always go over. It's just so frustrating and it wears me down ever y day.

I thought that maybe this BLC would help kick me in the butt but it doesn't seem to be doing too much to get me motivated at this point in time. It's like I get this motivation one day and then the next, when I would be putting it to good use, it's gone.

There one moment, gone the next. I just can't seem to win at this journey right now.

    I wish I had a magical solution. Motivation for each individual is as different as the snowflake you sent me. I feel sure the thing that will motivate both of is out there waiting for us. Now maybe it is time we both seek it out. We will search together. hugs and Merry Christmas
Ps. Thanks for the will be my star and guide me

    What is your top priority for today? For the week?

What action will bring you closer to that goal?

Be creative in finding a way to get the priority accomplished.

My top priority is exercising today. I will watch an exercise video to get started. emoticon

    The formula seems to work
Track food emoticon + Track exercise emoticon = Results

Whatever you do.. don't go backwards. Hang in there. It's not worth being sad about. emoticon

    Sometimes the key is to just do it, even if it isn't "right"

    Hang in there....The first step is figuring out what your comfort zone is and then stepping out of it!! Push yourself and test your boundaries you will be amazed by how many amazing things you can do even when your mind is telling you no...Don't beat yourself up over the scale just get up and do it-you can do it!

    Sounds like you're having a tough time, and you're not alone - we've all been there and sighed/cried/ranted.

First bit advice, what goals are you hoping to achieve, y'know, apart from eating and exercising well? Even if it's just doing ten minutes of fitness a day it'll still be better than a poke in the eye with a wet fish.

Secondly, find something in your routine than makes you feel good, something that you're proud of yourself for. You've decided to change your lifestyle and that's not easy, but there's got to be all sorts of little things that you're getting right but aren't giving yourself credit for.

Stick with it even though it's tough right now. Most importantly of all, don't beat yourself up because you're not Wonder Woman. You will get there.
