Consistency...or lack there of
Thursday, January 31, 2013
My problem, as I see it is my lack of consistency. I am great at starting and I can usually manage to push myself here and there to achieve what I set out to do but I never consistently stick with any plans that I make. I'm horrible at making excuses to let myself off the hook, I'm too busy, it's too cold out, I'm too tired ect. but if I really want to make these changes stick I have to be able to get up and work out or to eat good and stay on track consistently no matter what is going on in my life. I just have yet to figure out how to make myself stick.... I have tried joining challenges here and while it usually helps I'm still not as with it as I should be, I have a weight loss buddy on here but it seems that I'm most often using her to confess my failures (sorry buddy :)) I set myself up a weekly weigh in but it doesn't seem to matter. I've made lists of all the things I'm working towards hung up motivators (fat pics and pairs of old skinny jeans) I want to look and feel good but my efforts always fizzle out before long then I take a break for a week or 2 before I jump back in ready to go with tons of enthusiasm just to fizzle out all over again. This is my cycle that I have been repeating for the last 5 years I cannot keep doing it! How do you break this cycle???!!?!!?!
