I am feeling particularly unmotivated...

Sunday, August 11, 2019

I have plateaued the last two-ish months, and I have been trying to jump start my weight loss, but I seem to be self-sabotaging my efforts. I exercise well 4 times per week, but I overeat way too many days so no change happens on the scale. I track my food, but I tend to go over. I have been eating at night again this last week, and that always spells doom. I am not really sure what to do. There is no dessert in the house, which is good, but I bought chips at the store today and ate too many this afternoon. I shouldn't have bought them at all but I was hungry when I was at the store.... Maybe I can find someone to give them to. I am not sure how to start over at this point. I keep waiting for myself to feel more motivated, but I just don't. I haven't lost any weight this current Biggest Loser challenge. I have maintained, but it would have been nice had I lost even one pound. Not really sure what to do.

I slept bad the last two nights. I was so tired last night but I tossed and turned until 2 am. I woke up at 8 am to go do welcome table at church. I was so tired by the time I got home from church and the grocery store that I crashed and slept for two hours. Now I am all groggy and out of it. I have no energy. I am hoping to go to bed early tonight, and I hope I sleep!

Tomorrow's Goals:
1) Do chores around the house (dishes, laundry, straighten living room and dining room).
2) Finish midterm and homework for auditing. Both are due tomorrow.
3) Finish homework part 1 for managerial accounting (due Tuesday).
4) Go for a walk in the evening.

Today I'm Grateful For...
1) That I had a nice coffee hour after church sitting and talking with people I don't normally talk to.
2) That the grocery shopping is done until Wednesday, when I will need to buy chicken.
3) That I did get to nap this afternoon.

    When I am hungry at the store (it happens to me too!!), and I can't resist chips, I buy baked. Or sometimes, I will buy a small size Turkey and Cheese Lunchable. Or a banana. If I have a work around in place, it makes it easier to deal with when I'm in the situation.

    We all seem to go through periods of stagnation. I would advise to try something different. It often helps one to get back on track.

    I've read that we need to have discipline when the motivation is not there. You are being disciplined with your exercise and you are maintained likely because of that, but you probably just need to extend your discipline to eating can do it

    You can do it. Hitting that stagnant period really sucks. I'm always ready to shoot my scale when I don't see changes. I've found that making sure I get enough protein at breakfast and lunch helps keep me from unhealthy snacking. Hang in there and just do the best you can.

    A thought, make sure you have a good serving of protein at every meal. Nite time snack: start with a full glass of water, then maybe a boiled egg with horseradish or an ounce or two of cheese with a multigrain cracker. One more thought "A little bit
