TIRED OF STARTING OVER

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

I feel like every six months I post the same blog- "here I am starting over"- someone make me stop this vicious cycle! I need to get back on the bandwagon and stay there!!! I am only on my third day of being recommitted but hoping it sticks this time??? I got on board with some new supplements (Advocare)- anyone know about them or want to share any info. I am starting with the 24 day challenge- let's see how it goes. I am eating clean and giving up my horrible caffeine addiction (well mostly at least). I am doing cardio and I signed up for a groupon which is 5 weeks of crossfit. I have to use it before November 5th so hopefully that will motivate me to stick with it for the full five weeks. I have not felt much of a change on the supplements yet- but I only started them Monday. I certainly feel the difference in the no caffeine :( headaches:( but I am told that it will pass eventually. I am back to waking up early and doing my morning cardio for at least part of the week. I wanted to commit to 5 days a week but I just don't know if that is sustainable. And I am eating 100% clean (or as close a physically possible). I have been tempted to weigh myself but I am waiting. Please try and help me stay motivated on this site. I came back here because the social aspect really helped me last time and I am hoping it will do the same now.

    As Jen says, it happens to all of us. My goal is to make the times where I'm off shorter and shorter and fewer and farther between.
Had this discussion with my housemate. I'm back to being fully committed after a lack-luster summer, not eating perfect, drinking too much and hardly ever working out. This culminated in about 10 days where I just ate and drank EVERYTHING with no absolutely regard for a healthy diet. 4 pounds gained in just that 4 days and 10 overall this summer.
He said he was at his heaviest - gaining 35 pounds back after an ENTIRE YEAR of eating and drinking anything.
If I had gone that long doing that, I would have surely gained back everything I lost in the last 2 years.

So keep it up, make it last as long as possible and when you fall, get up quick!

    I think repeated starts over happen to the best of us- I keep doing it too. Its getting back up that makes the different though. Just use baby steps, and be gentle with yourself. you can do it :)

    Yoou can do it and it will be easier if you don't look at the whole picture. That is at times overwhelming. I am also starting over again and have decided one day at a time or if necessary one minute at a time. I know that I can do it, I just have to stop making excuses, get off my lazy, self indulgent back side and get it done.
So far today I have done well, I am looking for my swimsuit and thinking about going to the Y. Now I have to stop thinking and get going. I also need to finish eating the breakfast I said I was eating.
Whole new ball game but with a different umpire and a few rule changes. emoticon

    Take things one day, one meal at a time. Don't overwhelm yourself with too many changes at once. I have had a lot of stress due to unexpected job loss and now in process of moving and have regained most of what i had lost. So i am starting over as well. emoticon emoticon

    ME, TOO! I have physical motivators, as well (my daughters, co-Girl Scout leaders). This is my "upteenth-millionth" time of starting over and I AM OVER IT! We can keep each other motivated on here, and you can find me on Facebook, as well.
