Down, certainly not out

Monday, August 19, 2013

I'm feeling crazy in the head. I may have mentioned this once or twice. Since recovering from my illness last week, I've just not had the motivation to resume. It's aggravating! I am super moody and just want to slap myself to snap out of it! Today I did a 20-minute walking video, after putting it off until lunchtime. I'm feeling better for having done it, but I'm still beating myself up.

My eating yesterday ended up being terrible. I didn't even track it. I gave myself permission to overeat. In the back of my mind somewhere, I always know this is a bad idea. In the moment, I never really pay any heed to that notion though. I just want to taste and eat whatever deliciousness is tempting me, and damn the consequences.

So today feels like "starting over," and I'm trying to focus on the basics just to get them out of the way. Drink the water, got the exercise done, eat right. Eat right. Eat right!! I'm feeling emotional about a number of things, and it's weakening my resolve on that front. I don't want to heap on that pile guilt over giving up, so I'm not doing it. I can't do that to myself again, not now. I'm going to finish today strong, and have that as a positive thing that I can go into tomorrow with.

    I'm sorry to hear you are having a rough patch! We all go through them & you'd think by now we'd know the secret to avoid them or at least come out of them quickly....sadly we don't. Congrats on getting a workout in today - that's a step in the right direction! If I get up in a mood & try to face the day as a whole I usually just toss in the towel before I get up. I just take it meal by meal, workout by workout, etc. Take it step by step and you'll be back on track before you know it!

    Staying motivated is always an issue for me. It can be tough. And being menopausal doesn't help with the moods either. Just take things a day at a time. Make a plan to do well with your eating for one day and get moving in some small way each day. And if you fall short, there's always tomorrow. Just don't give up.

    We can do it!!!!
