update: complacency sucks

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

Well, I slid into maintenance mode apparently. I go up, I go down. I sorta track what I eat, but I'm not making an effort to lose anymore.
I don't understand how I fell into complacency so easily. I noticed my motivation disappearing months ago and tried again and again to get it back to no avail. I'm disappointed with myself for not hitting my goal.

Here's a picture of me brainfarting.

I'm still working out 3 days a week though, and with that I do know I'm getting stronger. I can now curl 50 lbs (I started at 10) and squat 250 (started at 190) which I really enjoy. Lifting weights is fun for me. I also still run as my cardio those 3 days. I don't do the same thing, like day 1 I might run 1 mile, day 2 I might walk fast on a high incline, and day 3 I might run and walk at an incline.

Sunday I managed to run 1.5 miles straight through. I've never done that. Ever. Not in my 29 years, even in track in middle school (when my event was the 1.5 mile) have I ever run 1.5 miles straight without walking in the middle.

I'm quite proud of that. However, was I able to do it because I'm getting healthier, or because I didn't eat breakfast and had a single cup of coffee an hour before gym time? Guess I'll find out today as it's gym day and I want to try to do that again.

Um, the baby is crawling now. He likes to get over to something and pull himself up standing and bounce up and down while screaming. it's great fun, he acts.
Here's a pic of him sleeping:

Summer is here (I live in Texas, it starts early) and I have to buy a bathing suit this week. We have a swimming party Saturday, and my old suit is quite baggy. It's sad. I'm looking forward to suit shopping, but am dreading it at the same time. While I have a bikini-able body, the lighting in the rooms makes every slight bulge accented. Oh well.

So there's my update. What can I do about complacency?
Thanks for reading!
