Sad Face

Tuesday, June 08, 2010

So that one bad weekend turned into a not so great week. I didnt eat horribly, but I didnt excercise as much as I usually do. I'm really struggling to get back on the train and i REALLY want to get back on it. I dont know what happened. I was at it full force and those TWO DAYS derailed me so bad. How do I get that motivation back? I was doing so good and now i'm so disappointed in myself. I feel like I have to start back at square one, which I know isnt true. One slightly bad week hasnt screwed up two months of hard work, but I can't help feeling that way. It's always the ruiner for me. Feeling like I've wasted all that time, so why start over and do it again? I always sabotage myself. I can't let that happen, especially when I'm realizing that it's happening.

    Remember the importance of small steps and acheivable goals. You might even want to go back to the Fast Break, and keep your goals really simple again for a while. That might stop your downward spiral, and get you going in a happier direction again.

    Know that you aren't alone.

    I know how you feel. It's hard to stick to a plan, especially if it's restrictive.

    Maybe try thinking of your plan as a long path you're on. Maybe you took a little side-trail off to the side on the weekend, and spent the week coming back to the path, just taking baby steps.

    You've already come really far... and all you have to do now is keep going! You already have the motivation. Just do it!

    We all need to be able to take a break once in a while, maybe this one wasn't planned but the only way to get back on track, is to do it. Remember to be as kind to yourself as you would be to a friend, can't do anything about the past, it's time to move forward.

    that is my pep talk, I do not always walk the walk, but I do the best I can in the here and now.

    best of luck to you,
