Ladies and Gents and dear friends -
It's official. I have soooooooo lost my groove! Ha. Where in the hell did it go? I have absolutely no idea...!
It's been since mid May that I have not been in the gym or out exercising regularly which is highly unusual for me. I feel like my body, though slimmer now, is getting flabby again, lol. Haven't cared to walk, run, hit the weights or anything.
I am still eating rather well, but hate the gym at the moment. I have hit a plateau yet again, no doubt cause I haven't been exercising. But this time it's THE plateau. The one I knew would happen. You see, years ago when I had great weight loss, I got right to this level. 175-178 lbs. My body just loves this weight. No matter what I did, my weight just stayed here. And here I am yet again, just stuck stuck stuck... at 177, 175, 177. No forward, no backward. Just everyday 177, 175. I now hate the 170's... just like I did the 180's back in the day, ha.
Alas, the summertime is here and I'm just out having a good time on the weekends, and then during the week, all I want to do after work is be home and chill. Inside. Because it's soooo HOT outside in South Florida. And I mean HOT, most times with humidity, like today. And the evenings is usually the opportunity I would take to go to the gym, ride my bike or take a run. No desire to do any of the above. Boo...
So once again... I am at my mercy's end. Got to try again to take my own advice.
***1- Try again every day.
***2- Dress for success - so change into workout gear the moment I get home. But I don't even want to do that anymore. I just get home, take off my work clothes and prance around in the undies. No care for any other clothing. (sigh) Have to get over it.
***3- Take advantage of ANY inkling of wanting to workout, no matter the time or circumstance... (like when you feel to clean, you have to do it right there and then, cause you know that feeling is never coming back, lol).
***4- Search for my motivation to make it in once again. Gotta, gotta find it. What's my motivation anyway? I think I forgot, ha.
Before when this happened really bad, I hired a personal trainer. And the process of another person in the mix holds me accountable. And my PT was wonderful... and I did not want to disappoint him. Next thing I knew, I was in the gym at least 3-4 times a week outside of getting in my session with him. But alas, he still has not returned from being on military leave even though he was supposed to be back in June. Plus I really can't afford it, even if he was back. Ugh... can't even think about it at the moment.
So, here I am. Plateaued and without groove. I just don't care to work out at all. I think it's mainly because I lack the energy too. I just get wiped out so much quicker lately. Odd.
Are you going through this right now? Or is it just me? I sooooo need a push...lol...can anyone please come over here and just give me a good shove?
...for reading. Leave me a note... I love that!
