Day: I've lost count

Wednesday, October 14, 2020

I have lost my umph in my weight loss. I have been consistent for around 6 months and I'm just burned out or bored. I don't feel like it. I don't feel like exercising more. I'm bored and tired of cardio. I'm bored and tired of not being able to eat all the yummy foods. I hate to cook so I am not inspired to look for new recipes.

I have no motivation to keep going. I'm tired of trying to "find a way to get me excited again." I feel like my weight loss goals have distracted me from other goals. I just don't wan to focus on it anymore.

I really hope I get my inspiration and motivation back, but I just don't feel like it. I also don't want to get off the path. I've done so well these last 6 months. I'm more than half way to my weight goal and I've lost 40lbs.

I might be struggling with a little of depression.

Anyway, I'm finishing my coffee and going to force myself to do some cardio.

    Well, there's nothing wrong with practicing maintenance for a little while. Have those yummy foods occasionally and in moderation and focus on maintenance. Think about being able bodied enough to have the opportunity to do the workouts you are doing (that helps me) and the workouts serve to increase your heart health, stamina and endurance, and boost mood. Lots of important things not weight loss related.
    I'm burned out too on cardio. I think I'm going to cut back on # of minutes and add in weights but I need to find a workout 'series' to keep me on schedule. One of my SP friends does virtual workouts online with friends, not exactly sure how, think they stream a youtube together? I used to workout with friends and miss the social aspect a lot. Hang in there, there is a lot going on in life. You have done amazing work and you deserve to feel proud of yourself. I hope you find the right path for you at this time.

    Have you tried switching up your routine or do you always do the same exercises? Trying something new could help! Or joining a class/challenge (I think there are some good virtual ones). Motivation doesn't always have to start internally!
