Lack of Motivation…The Silent Killer
I have started a bad habit. I get on the scale every morning. I mean I guess it’s a bad habit, it’s what I have heard. I heard you should only do it weekly. My accountability partner only does it weekly, but I just have a hard time waiting. I want results, and like any human being I want them now. I have found though that even the littlest amount on the scale, if it goes up, ruins my day. I just can’t think of what I’m doing wrong. I have to stop doing this, and stick to Sundays with my accountability partner b/c this is tearing me apart. That scale every morning though, cheers me up after my run and shred, except this morning. It just pissed me off. I guess lack of motivation is the wrong title for this, b/c I’m still motivated, I’m just disheartened a bit now.
I gave up Soda. I drink more water now, than I ever have in my life. I have been on a treadmill more consecutively for the past 12 days than I have in my life. I have significantly cut back my drinking, and my calories. The other day I said no to a chocolate chip cookie….a cookie!!! So why is that scale creeping up on me? I know they say you build muscle before fat, and I’ve heard that’s a myth though too, but when does the losing weight part kick in?!
I read in an article where you need to burn 3500 calories a week to lose a pound, what do you think?
I think, who has time to burn 3500 calories!!
My job is mostly sedentary, I mean I move when I can but come on!!
This is my dream, to be that girl is that picture there…
She thought she was fat. If I could do anything to go back and slap her and tell her different.
Anyway….please please fill me with some knowledge and some support. Give this girl a kick in the right direction!!
