I'm having a hard time getting re-motivated...

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

At the beginning of last month, I was SUPER motivated to stay on my eating/exercise plan for 30 days...then after 11 days, I fell off my wagon. Since then, I've told myself every day that this is another fresh start and opportunity to get back on track, but after a day or a couple of days on the plan, I miss a workout or go over my calorie limit without really caring. I'm disappointed in myself for not making it through 30 days and I struggle with the all-or-nothing mentality, so it has been very hard to start back over.

But I'm still overweight! I'm still prone to binge eating. I still have to do SOMETHING about it, right? So today I'm going to force myself to stick to my plan, eating under 1200 calories of whole foods and exercising for at least 30 minutes. I guess I'll keep forcing myself to do it until I am motivated by my own progress : )

    That's a good idea. I like the affirmation, 'I'm smokin' hot!' When I say that in the mirror, I always laugh out loud.

    You can do it! We sometimes have to fake it till we make it. Have you tried writing down affirmations? I have found that to be extremley helpful. One of mine is "I am healthy and fit".
