It's not easy to face the facts and be honest with yourself sometimes, but it IS necessary. I've been a mess lately; I haven't been consistent with my healthy habits and it's beginning to show. It's such a scary feeling to realize that and still find yourself doing the same mistakes over and over again.
Maybe it will help to face the (painful) facts.
Fact 1: I have gained 7 pounds over the past few months. Not a lot, but still - too much. It's a slippery slope once you start falling back to old habits and I'm TERRIFIED I'll one day wake up and find that I've gained all the weight back again.
Fact 2: I haven't been tracking my meals consistently for a loooong, long time. It helps a whole lot when I track them because it keeps me accountable, but for some reason I keep coming up with all kinds of excuses and taking the easy way out.
Fact 3: I haven't been consistent with my workouts. THIS NEEDS to change because it makes me feel so good when I stick to my normal workout routine.
Fact 4: I can't just keep eating whatever I want, not work out and expect there not to be any consequences! Of course I will gain weight. Of course I will feel lazy and miserable. Of course it'll get that much more difficult to get back on track.
I NEED TO GET REAL AND STOP THIS! This is crazy! I'm sure so many of you know what I'm talking about. It's like there is this voice inside my head that tells me all these lies and makes me give up on myself even though I know so well what I REALLY want and need! And it's not another slice of that cheesecake or a third cookie! I know I'm gaining weight, I feel it - it doesn't show that much but I feel miserable and lazy and so disappointed in myself. I know dwelling on negative emotions isn't helpful but I just needed to get it all out.
I need your help and support once again my friends! I need you to tell me to get my act together and stop this madness right now. I know what I need to do but for some reason it's just so difficult to get started.
All I know is that I'm not gaining that weight back. EVER. I'm going to get back to tracking my meals and working out regularly because I know it'll make me feel a million times better. It might take time but I'll get there again! And I'll lose these 7 pounds AND MORE. Mark my words.
