WOW, it's been since April that I was on here -- and yep, my last post was about being so frustrated with my progress!
I continued doing TRX through the end of May.... never losing a pound or an inch... went into the summer feeling like I was going to keep moving... and well... you know, life happened!
So today I start the Bear River Nutrition Weight Loss Challenge -- on one hand I feel like it's "just another attempt"... on the other hand, I feel like it can't hurt....
I had a "health assessment" last night -- and walked out of there so depressed -- I know that it wasn't meant that way... or maybe it was -- beat you down so much that the only way left to go is up... but I felt completely beat up... 2 on one telling me how horrible everything I do is, and that I have to change everything about everything...
REALLY??? they have no background... on where I've come from... how much I HAVE changed what/how we eat. How my habits have changed... what I do....
so here I go again... back on track... back to tracking everything...
now to get back on the exercise track... 'cuz that's not gonna be easy without my trainer -- who informed me he wasn't EVER coming in early again -- even after football because then he had other things he was doing... well then.... guess I'm on my own... which is NOT how I thrive! Guess it's time to find something else to motivate me! -- 'cuz Lysa's wedding is not only 11 months away :-)

    Your blog echoes my feelings of lab results I received recently. I have been in a funk. I am the type of person that will stay that way for awhile, then something kicks in and I try again.

    So here is your Spark: Keep on, keeping on.

    Thank you for your comment on my blog, Que Sera Sera, Whatever will be, will be. I think Spark People offers trainers. I don't work so I don't have money unless my husband decides to give some to me. I am not butting into your life with advice, but I did want to thank you for your encouragement today.

    One thing is for sure...YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!!! That is what Sparkpeople is all about. Don't get down on yourself. Start with one or two changes. Don't change everything all at once. If it makes you feel better, I have been doing horrible. I have not exercised in a month or two. I have gained back all my weight. Let's do this together. emoticon emoticon

    Well, just think of the health assessment as your baseline, nowhere to go but up! Dachelle gives good advice and we've all been there. Just make small changes you can live with. For me, it is about drinking water, logging my food, cutting down on the bad carbs and sticking with complex carbs, and moving every day. Even on the days that I do not do brisk cardio to get my heart rate going I am at least moving. I have a sedentary job, so I make sure I get 12,000 steps in a day. Good luck and welcome back!

    Well, you are off to a good start. Blog about your progress, challenges, frustrations, ect, and let us support you! This is how I have survived nearly 11 months! I have friends on here who challenge and motivate me and hold me accountable! It makes such a difference!

    Sorry about your health assessment. Just think how great you are going to feel as you turn all of those bad things around! Make small changes that you know you can live with and be consistent. When you plateau on your weight loss, add in more changes. You can do this! That is how I have lost 65 pounds so far!
