I did awesome for 2 months and dropped 17 lbs. I've gained 5 back in three weeks. I just can't seem to get myself motivated any more. I can see myself working out, getting in shape, feeling great, but then the alarm goes off and I can't drag myself out of bed. As much as I hated weighing in for the Biggest Looser contest at work, at least it kept me going. Everyone at my new job is post menopausal and heavy (not huge) and not shy about snacking, etc all day.
Ugh, I'm just frustrated. I'm mad that I fell off the wagon and I want it back so bad, but I just can't seem to get focused. What do I do????
First of all, quit beating yourself up. I fell off the wagon, too, and I've gained back atleast 5 lbs. And second...let's just start over together. Just get a good workout in today and start making one healthy decision at a time. I bet those extra few stupid pounds will come off just as quickly as they came on.
Sounds like a deal. I had a buddy the first time through 30ds and it was a great motivator. We sent each other a FB message every day after we'd finished. Thanks for doing it with me Kelly! I didn't "work out" today, but we went hiking so it's a good start.
Dont beat yourself up....i only did 2 weeks of the 30DS before i got injured and fell off the bandwagon for good...that was at the beginning of March, and i havent done it since, lol. OOPS.....it happens though.
I just make sure i make healthier eating choices. Im not saying im perfect, becuase i do have days where i just dont want to, and i just cant help but snack, snack, snack. But the next day i always try and make up for it.
YES CHRISTA!!! I have expected you to tell me to stop being lazy, get off my ***** and git'r done, lol! I know my excuses are just excuses, but man, being a working mom of two is hard enough without fitting in a 5 am workout, lol!
So I did get a really good workout in today. I cut our grass using our neighbor's push mower. You know the kind they used in the 50's that was basically a bunch of knives on wheels? Yeah, that mower. And it was in the 90's today. And we have about 1/2 an acre. So I'm feeling a little more motivated, plus I'll definitely be able to sleep well tonight which means I have better odds of getting up tomorrow.
Kim, I completely feel your pain on the whole 5am thing. When I was working full-time, that was the only time I had to exercise and there were MANY mornings when the pull of my bed was a lot stronger than getting up to work out! It's HARD.
And yeah, I could totally be a 4th buddy. I ate like crap and didn't workout for 2 weeks around Leah's bday when family was here, I had lots to prepare for, etc. I'm starting to get back on track now, but I could certainly use extra motivation!
Sure, girls! The more, the merrier. I just think that the last month was hard for everybody, with the birthdays and such. Maybe we should have a daily check-in thread? We don't have to record everything we eat, but just give a general idea of how your day went and what you did for exercise. Sound like a good idea?
