I haven't been on in awhile, I have finally returned to work since the birth of my angel baby. And since returning to work, I have fallen off track. I'm really upset with myself and I don't really know how to gain back my motivation, it has been really difficult to maintain the gym and work with no set sitters all of the time, most of the time if I find a sitter to go to the gym it's last minute so there's no real concrete plans on whether I will make it in or not. I also work in retail, when I go on break all these delicious food is around me that is no good for me. I have packed lunches to bring to work, but I often lose desire to eat it due to temptation around me. It doesn't help that they keep the break room stocked full of donuts and other garbage, none of which I have given in to but it's still not a big help. My issue is, I hate veggies really. I don't like green beans, I don't like asparagus or peppers or anything, I really only enjoy cucumbers. When I have salad its only lettuce and cucumbers with some chicken or ground turkey or whatever, I can't get myself to savor the taste of most veggies but even more the texture. I feel like I'm doomed and I'm starting to lose hope. I get sick of the same thing over and over again, I'm getting really agitated with this whole situation. Any pick me ups and or tips would be really appreciated, I have gained 5lbs. Thanks!

    thank you both, I go to a gym with a day care, I really should sign her up it just sucks I will have to pay an extra $10 a month on top of what I already pay, I will have to discuss it with my husband, I need to change this. I can't live like this anymore. I need to maintain my healthy lifestyle. Since we lost our son I just can't maintain my happy positive attitude. UGH

    Two things: find a gym with childcare! It's essential. I've been taking my son to the gym with me 5 days a week since he was a year old. It was difficult in the beginning but we worked through it quickly (one tip that really helped is: I bought a duplicate of one of his favorite toys and donated it to the gym. That way, he was excited to see his 'comfort object' at the gym.)
    Eat your veggies in a smoothie.

    Stay positive!
    There is no need to put yourself down, just pick yourself back up and keep things in perspective!
    Try looking at the sparkrecipes for some new ideas, so you don't get bored with the same foods over and over again.
    I wasn't a fan of veggies before I found amazing vegetable recipes:
    My favourite: Grilled vegetables (peppers, eggplant zucchini) . Just slice them up, brush a little olive oil on them and grill on the BBQ - so delish!! I even add some cheese on top!

    You can do this!
