I have seriously fell off my healthy lifestyle. I've gained back at least 8lbs and lost a lot of muscle. I'm so discouraged because even though I've taken it off before i feel like I'm starting all over again. I know coming back to Spark is the right thing to do but that is about the only thing that I'm motivated to do and that is only when I'm at the front desk at work with nothing else to do. I don't have much energy and its frustrating knowing that the energy will come from working out which I don't have the energy to do. I have my bag packed and in the car so I will go straight to the gym when I leave work. I don't want to just go hop on the eliptical though. The thought of that bores me right past the gym and home to bed. I did tell myself this morning that at least that is exercise while going home to bed does nothing. I'm going to try a couple of streaks. The first one is water consumption. 96 oz every day for thirty days. Im on day 5. My next will be at least a 10 minute workout a day for the next 7 days. Diet is a big challenge for me. I really need to stay within my calorie range which at this time is 1250-1500 calories. My first problem is I enjoy food too much. I don't think I emotion eat or overdo fast food but I have developed this habit of eating too many times a day. As I write this I'm realizing that snacking is my problem. While over eating is a big one for me I don't want to put too much on my goal plate so for now I'm just going to ask myself not to eat any snack between breakfast and lunch. Anyone reading this blog please feel free to give feedback on any successful solutions to mindless snacking. I know I can chew gum or drink water when I feel the urge, I definitley feel like its going to be a mind over matter deal with me cuz nothing but me can stop me when I get an urge to do something. I just wish my urge to get back to a healthier me was stronger than the urge to snack.
