The Good the bad and the Ugly

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

You almost think I should start out with the good.. but I am starting out with the bad.. which is I have been so off track or at least I feel that way.. last week I did not go to th gym at all to be honest I don't like the new gym I joined and thank God it was a pay as you go gym because I am not paying for November.. I hate being tied into a contract and this gym offers the option to pay cash or credit and work out and be done but not happy with the set up my old gym I worked it out where they will bill me monthly statement and i will pay.. of course it is 5 bucks extra but for me it is worth it. but any how I did not work out I ate like crap and it go really ugly.. by the end of the week I was bloated and tired and out of it..

This week I feel I am getting back on track.. but truth be told I am missing something that is lost . oh yea my motivation my determination my drive to lose weight.. I feel like my efforts are worthless meaning the more I work out the more I am squeaky clean the more I feel like I am not getting any where I can go weeks of working out eating wright and the scale dose not budge.. its the truth.. but let me eat a slice or two of pizza and bam there is 5lbs on.. its a vicious cycle and I am spinning my wheels I feel like I am on my spinning bike which I am doing everything right getting good cadence and my form is good I am at a target heart rate but I am not moving.. well you dont move on a spinning bike but that is how I feel with my program.. so that is the ugly of it..

The good which I will end with.. is that I don't want to give up... I can't give up.. I really really need to this and I need you.. and I need some kind of help, peace, or smack in the head.. maybe all of it.. so I am going to keep going.. that is all I can do ..

Thanks for reading ..

    My recommendation is..... #1 get out of your routine and invent a new one, whatever it may be. #2 Be patient. It's gonna take a while to get real results. Have faith in the process. #3 Log your intake of foods. We have a tendency to under-estimate our intake. #4 Perhaps the most important is love yourself wether fat or slim. I wish you the very best, you are definitely worth it.

    The last part of your blog not wanting to give up. Hold onto that part! You can do this! Do you have to go to a gym? Can you maybe find things to do at home that is just as good? Maybe buy some of those exercise bands for the weights part and do different exercises at home for the rest? I abhor gyms I can't stand other people watching my fat giggle. So I have a gym in my basement. It has taken me years to get it all but I am happy with what I have. I know that isn't an option for most but there are things you can do at home that are just as good as a gym. Do you have a wii? I love my wii fit games They really get ya moving and sometimes even make you sore.

    Just a thought.

    I wrote this awesome response to your blog and it got lost in cyberspace. Ughhhhh.

    I'm in the same boat you are in MsAnita. Or at least I think I am. I want to be healthy and I am going through the motions, but the motions aren't enough to make me lose weight or gain muscle. My motions are just enough to make me busy. I have no feeling about the motions either. They just are.

    So, here I sit, letting all of my years of hard work turn back to fat and flab. For real. I'm not exaggerating. It's exactly what I said I wasnt going to let happen to me back when I reached my goal weight, but I just don't feel like I have it in me to go work my ass off.

    I'm maintaining and I am staying busy, but I'm for sure not happy with where I am at right now. We just have to keep plugging away until that spark turns in to a flame!

    Focus on the good! You are not giving up and that is awesome. Glad you don't have a contract with that gym, since you don't like it.

    Motivation fades, but we just have to keep pushing on. Remind yourself WHY you want to lose weight and get healthy. If you're doing the right things and the scale is still not budging, then look for some non-scale victories.

    Be proud of yourself because you are never going to give up!

    The last part about not giving up . . . that's the important part . . . and trumps the bad and the ugly.

    It's hard to go thru the motions w/o the passion, the fire. Wish I knew how to fix that. But all I can say is keep doing it and it WILL happen.

    Hugs and smiles. Don't give up!

    You and me both. I know the feeling. The motions are there but the fire is not. I am glad you don't give up. And are sharing your feelings. Just try try again. You can't do better than the best you give today. Unless it is the best you give tomorrow. I guess we just need to practice our patience, huh?
    I am standing beside you in this. Some how some way we will move forward with our own things we want to change. I believe in you! emoticon
