I'm Still Standing

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

No really, I have not been terribly active on Spark in the last couple of weeks, but I simply cannot.

Too much work stress (double duty again)
Too much happening in the personal zone too (not bad or anything just crazy busy)
Have dropped the ball with the toning and strength. ( I really need to find the self dicipline to pick that back up, as I feel the loss of the ground I already gained)

I cannot think of the last time (aside from sleep) that I had 2 hours to myself.

Fitting in my bare minimum fitness requirements of 3 cardio sessions a week, trying to eat semi-reasonable most of the time but not always managing.
Result: Still stuck on my platuae.

I am not giving up, I just confess I am not trying that hard either. Correction, I have so little energy left right now that what little control I am keeping over the situation FEELS like I am trying very hard indeed.

It looks like things may be slowing down again a bit in the next month or so.

Maybe I will find a Spring Fitness Challenge to join and revitalize things a bit.

    Your month sounds ;like my last three years with my husband battling cancer. He lost it this past Feb 11. Now I need to find motivation to keep going on to get healthy.

    February has been my roughest month since November. Brush yourself off and move forward, whatever that looks like right now. I just revved up my goals, changing the focus from "gotta lose this weight" to "I must find a way to relieve stress"! I'm praying for you! I believe in you, you have accomplished so much! emoticon

    A Spring Challenge would be energizing, for sure. Since life has so many ups and downs, it makes sense to accept moving into a lower gear on aspects of your healthy lifestyle - like exercise. Just eat sanely and fit the exercise in where you can! Then you will come out the other end of the busy tunnel no worse for the wear!

    Glad you are still here, that means a lot! Give yourself credit for continuing to want to do more. This rough patch will pass and you will have a lot to be proud of for not losing ground! Keep thinking about your long term goals. I believe in you!

    I am in exactly the same boat. We'll get through it and be able to make time for ourselves again eventually.

    It's been a tough few weeks and when you are so busy, it is really hard to get it all in.. I am definitely in the same boat as you at the moment. I am just hoping that soon all these little things will get resolved and life will go back to a blissful pace where I have time to think.. If I could get a moment to unbury my desk that would be a step in the right direction... But my workouts have definitely suffered and my nutrition has been so-so at best. Until yesterday I had not tracked for a week. But the good news for you is that you're just plateaued. I, on the other hand, have seemed to have gained back a few pounds. I am lingering around 168 recently, not ideal, but if we just keep doing the best we can through these tough times, we will be in a good position to start up again when our lives get a little less busy. emoticon emoticon
