consistency is my nemesis
Friday, March 01, 2013
It has been a while since I last posted and I must say I can tell the effects. I am having the HUGEST problem with staying motivated and consistency! I simply don’t know what to do! I joined a gym which is open 24 hours. For a couple of weeks I would go 3-4 nights a week after my son fell asleep and my hubby came home. That would be around 10 pm and then I would get home at 11-11:30. Well, that started to get too much because it became easy to decide not to do it night. So last week I tried going at 5:00 AM. I liked that-got my exercise out the way and I made better choices all day. However this morning my 14 month old woke up at 3 am-and we didn’t go back to sleep until 4:30. So of course when my alarm went off at 5 am I laughed and went back to sleep. I know I wont be able to make it to the gym this evening but since I joined the spring streak I am going to do some weight training exercises at home. I am also joining the challenge in my 20 something spark group because this is my last year in my twenties and I want to be done trying to lose weight and pick up a new challenge in my 30s-like running a ½ marathon, pole dancing classes or even crossfit. My weight loss stall is so frustrating because I KNOW how to eat right, and know I should exercise. I will do well one week and then after I lose some weight I fall back off the wagon. In order to help with consistency I am printing off a March calendar and putting on my fridge with my exercise schedule. Every day that I do what I am supposed to (at least exercise wise) I will put a checkmark. Hopefully this will keep me on track. I am also determined to blog and spark more. What do you do to stay on track?
