Very disappointed.... :o(

Sunday, July 07, 2013

Well I have completely lost my way. I have been eating horrible and binging on cheese and haven't worked out in 2 and a half weeks. Luckily my elliptical is back in commission. It's been raining every day for almost 2 weeks and we still have 5 days left of it to go. I am feeling very defeated. I feel like I have to start all over. I've gained weight back, but I am unsure of how much.

Why do I always do this?! Why can't I get past the 2 month/20 lbs hump? I know I can do, I've done it. I just have to figure out how to be consistent. Any advice? My life is still in chaos because I can't get a routine because of the people around me. I am really trying, but can't function well without one... I know this is a chance to learn how to cope with upheaval but it's hard. I am trying to see the positive. I mean I haven't gained all my weight back. I'm going to start doing dvds again and doing my elliptical until the rain ends and I can start jogging again. I am setting myself the goal of tracking everything, everyday this week. I can do this!!!

    Oh, my wonderful sister. I was just feeling this way. All I can say is get one good day under your belt at a time. Pretty soon you will have a lot of room under that belt for more and more good days. I know that a series of bad days makes you feel horrible and you stop seeing the point, but as soon as you get one good day under your belt, you realize that you CAN do it. You just have to get back into the habit, which will take some effort and thought on your part. Instead of saying, "All week I'll log," maybe focus on smaller steps and say, "Tomorrow, I'll log." I've had to take a step back and reeducate myself to do this as well. I am back to baby steps, which is not bad. Now that your elliptical is fixed, I know that you will be jumping right back on it. Do an extra round on your elliptical to replace your usual 2 mile walk until the rain stops and make a date with me for some dvd workouts or I could lead us on a workout over Skype. I'm here for you, lost phone or not!

    Would it be more doable to plan 10 minutes activity at a time? Try doing that 3 times a day or scheduling you day to include some of the shorter video exercises from SparkPeople. Good Luck. I am fighting the same dilemmas.

    Maybe do your elliptical in the morning at the start of the day. Make it the first thing you do in the morning. No excuses. Treat it as something you would do no matter what before leaving home in the morning like for example, brushing your teeth.

    Good luck.

    you can do it, just spark daily and set yourself up for success with exercise, do it as soon as you can during the day and have all your stuff "ready" don't put it off until later because... danger,,,, then ambition goes away and everything else gets in your way also log, log food and water, water, water, you can do it!!! don't let the little slip slide you down further, life is full of slips, no worries, just get up and get sparking!!!! You are worth it, take time for you whenever you can, you deserve it!!! emoticon the more time you spend on spark and reading blogs you realize you are not alone we are all in this together, there are tons of people out there that feel ljust the way you do and we are all in this together!!! YOu can do it!!!
