Feeling the fizzle

Monday, April 15, 2013

So here I am a couple months into my weight loss, I am staying steady with not gaining and even losing a pound here and there but to be honest the last two weeks I haven’t been trying very hard, I think I might be feeling a bit of a burn out feeling, I don’t want to stop counting my calories though I haven’t been too great at it lately and my exercise YIKES only explains that one.. I end up sitting on the couch trying to get myself to just do it but I end up not.. I guess this is my time to step back and make myself realize how bad I want this, I can’t let it go as I would be just going back to unhappy and honestly exercise and nutrition is all I can seem to think about or read about so how to I turn a mental obsession into a physical act.. I read all the time these fitness blogs and learning about clean eating and my eating has been getting cleaner but I need to not fall short of my goals once again, I really wanted to reach a goal by my birthday and I hate to see another birthday come and go without meeting my goals.

I think every week keeps being busy I keep saying to myself “don’t worry next week will be calmer then you can really give it 110%” but the next week is just as crazy.

I guess the only answer is for me to just do it. It feels like there is something I want so bad but so many mental blocks are holding my from it or it’s just my own laziness fighting me…

I feel like I have made great strides in the mental food issues and relationship with food, my whole outlook on food is way different then when I started but I just can't see to get a handle on actually working out and I am not sure what my issue is.

    We ALL hit those times when we burn out. Counting calories, choosing healthy foods, getting your exercise - it's all tough choices, especially harder with all the temptations to eat naughty and be sedentary.

    You have made amazing progress!! Never forget how far you've come!!

    I find when I am in the zone and tracking my food diligently, the weight slides off. My issues aren't with exercise, but have been with food, so I find this really works. For working out, just go and start. Starting is better than not. Join a learn to run group, hire a personal trainer at your gym....heck, even just join a gym and walk on the treadmill then do some elliptical. Then sit in the corner and do some sit-ups. Then repeat the next day. Just start! Whether you feel like it or think you have time or not.
