Day 264: Tired of the cycle

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Working two jobs is rough.

I give so many props to people who are diligent in the gym because right now that is not me. I've found every excuse in the book to avoid staying on track like I had planned, and I'm frustrated with myself but I also don't know how to stop the cycle. I feel like I shouldn't be struggling so much this early on. I've been fluctuating around the same 4 pounds since December, and it's now halfway through March. During last fall, I had so much confidence in my abilities and I had control over my eating but ever since I've moved home, I feel like I've lost total control. I'm back to that "can't waste food" mentality, and I hate it.

It's finally starting to get nicer outside and I'm worried about not being as prepared and far along as I wanted to be by summer. I know this is my own fault, but it's really bugging me right now.

Sorry I've been so out of touch, friends. I'm going to try to spend at least a half hour a night on SP starting tonight.

    A - I definitely feel that staying accountable on SP is important. I've found that not only do I feel accountable to myself, but I feel accountable to my SP friends too, who need a boost every now and then, just like I do. When I either stop tracking food or stop coming on SP diligently, I stop losing weight.

    B - you are working 2 jobs and you may not be able to do what you used to be able to. It's possible that at this point, you only have 20 minutes at the gym in you per day. Maybe it is only 10 minutes. If you can't hit the gym, do 100 squats, 100 sit ups and 100 push ups. Just do something.

    It will all come together. You know exactly what you need to do, you just have a lot on your plate right now and you know that what is getting in the way is emotional, not physical. Mind over matter, right?
