Finding motivation

Monday, November 06, 2017

I am- yet again- struggling with motivation. It definitely helps me to track my diet and exercise, but sometimes I just want to give up. The absence of passion is sometimes the hardest thing for me to overcome on my weight loss/healthy living journey.

My Struggles:
"caring" - sometimes I want to throw in the towel. I am a foodie, and enjoy eating with my friends and family. I have a wardrobe full of clothes that fit me, a partner who loves me, etc. I
need to work on moderation and choices. Every day is not a special occasion, and I am not as healthy as I should be. I continue to work towards a healthy goal so I can be an example for and help others.
I'd also like to look good for my graduation in May!

I am proud of logging 6 days of exercise last week, and not gaining during Halloween week.
I logged even on my "bad" days of food, and it helped me to make better choices on other days. It also helps me to limit what I eat of less healthy foods.
I do like exercise, and I have been able to keep my body moving well. I love feeling strong.
I lost 3 pounds last week!

I'm on the road this week for interviews, and I made sure to pack my gym clothes/shoes. I will enjoy my time on my own, and try to make good choices. Hopefully I'll even drop a couple more pounds this week!
