Beyond Frustrated

Thursday, June 20, 2013

GAH!!!!!!!! I'm so tired of this; so tired of dieting, binging, exercising only to see the scale 1) not move or 2) move UP instead of down!! I'm sick of it!!! If I didn't have my wedding coming up; if I didn't have to worry about fitting into a dress I stupidly bought 2 years ago; I wouldn't even be worrying about this!!!!!! But no...I bought my dress two years ago (and I love it), when I was 10 lbs lighter and no matter how hard I'm trying, I just can't even lose 5 lbs and keep it off!!!! WTF??????

For weeks, I've been at 145-146 lbs and today, I'm up to 148 lbs - WTF???? happened? I have THREE months to drop at least 10 lbs - 15 lbs would probably be better and I have no idea how that's going to happen. Burn more calories than I intake? I intake about 1200 - 1400 per day and just working out (cardio) for an hour, I burn approximately 600. How the **** does that work out? Obviously, it doesn't. I feel like the only way I can do this is if I work out 2-4 hours daily. Who the **** has 2-4 hours a day to work out????

Just so frustrated and angry at myself. Because yes, I have made mistakes. I KNOW what works, what doesn't and I just can't seem to stop myself from sabotaging myself. WHO DOES THAT??? And I'm realizing, I need to do MORE - more self-control, more tracking, more exercising. What I'm doing isn't working - not for how soon I need to meet my goal. I know meeting my goal (10-15lbs lost in 3 months) is still doable, but I have to do more. Just totally beyond frustrated right now.

    With a wedding coming up you are probably stressed to the limits. Add in the worries about fitting the's no wonder you are struggling right now. I know when I'm stressed, I sabotage myself. It's counter-productive but we do it anyway.

    Do whatever you can to alleviate some stress. Take some down time for yourself in the weeks leading up to the big day. Lean on a good friend to help out, hand off what you can. Let her be your "bad-guy" for the day of the wedding to attend to any issues so you don't even need to hear about it (worked like a charm for me)

    And most importantly one attending your wedding knows what you envisioned. Your day will be amazing no matter what. This is your special day-don't let ANYTHING ruin that for you. It's about you and your honey..not the dress, not the reception, not the cake. Your friends and family are there to celebrate and have fun with you. If you can be relaxed about it no matter what does or doesn't happen you will enjoy the whole experience so much more.

    I wish you all the best!

    The best advice I can give you is this program using kettlebells:


    It's a free, 12-week program. 4 workouts per week plus cardio challenges. Send me an email with your normal e-mail address and I'll send you all the workouts they have sent me so you can see what it's all about. There's a dedicated group on Facebook. Very, very positive and supportive.

    I've been dealing with unrelated wrist and knee injuries, so I'm behind, starting week 2 only while they are in week 7. But timing doesn't matter. If you start, we can work the program together. Check it out.

    Kettlebells burn a crazy number of calories. This program also has a nutrition plan. When I first looked at it last year I thought there was no way I could do it, but my eating has shifted to nearly this plan on its own over the year. Not hard to work with. The folks in the videos who are just starting with the nutrition plan and the kettlebells have been losing lots of weight.

    I'm forwarding the first workout to your SP email so you can watch the video (the first program has some tech issues that they work out before the 2nd video).

    You can do it!
