I go through this quite often. I have had a hard time the past few months trying to get my mind back on track so that I can get this weight off. I have been walking almost daily since late April/Early May, and haven't even began to see any results. I know why... at least I think I do... It's because my mind (with my food) is not on track. I am still eating extremely high calorie and just all around bad foods.
I think maybe last night was my wake-up call. I ate entirely too much and got sick. I was up almost all night with extreme indigestion and acid reflux. It wasn't good at all. I tried everything to get it under control, but it didn't work. I wasn't even able to walk today because of how I was feeling. I was too hot and felt like I would pass out at any time. I am hoping and praying that this is a true lesson learned and that I will get on track and start seeing results.
To a New Start
I have 2 s coming up that I really want to be in shape for. I want to do some running, but at the very least, I am so ready to walk without huffing and puffing, and feeling all around horrible even after one lap.
You can do this! It seems like you have specific goals in place and you know what you really want out of yourself. I struggle with the same thing you talk about at the beginning of your entry - putting in the time to exercise and then sabotaging myself by indulging in my favorite junk foods and not seeing any results in my weight loss. It's a struggle but I am taking it one day at a time.
Signing up to run a 5k seems like a great idea - it gives you a deadline that you know you want to be in better shape for. I wish you the best of luck in your journey and I hope your 5ks are a blast! 1505 days ago
