The beginning.....

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

So I join the community with 22 pounds of my 60 pound goal gone. I've been eating right and running, with a 5k coming up this fall, and eventually a 10k in the spring.

Let me be clear. I am extremely proud of myself. I look better than I have in ages, my fitness level is better than since high school (a looooong time ago), and to have clothes in my closet that are too big for me is such a thrill.

Now? I'm stuck.

I've had a few bad weeks in regards to my eating and fitness. Sporadic workouts, terrible eating habits. I'm surprised I'm able to maintain my weight right now. I've lost my spark. My motivation is just not there.

I'm trying. I make excuses for myself - it's my period, crappy weather, I'm tired.....I have to stop doing that and start kicking my ass like I used to.

It's just been so hard!

  I've been doing the usual - perusing Pinterest, forcing myself to go anyways, looking at my marble jar (I have one with pounds to go and another for pounds lost). I've just been so blah about it lately.

Hopefully it will pass soon!

    We all experience lulls. Do you keep a journal? If you do - go back a read some of your entries - it helps me
