What obstacles make it harder for you to reach your goals?

My biggest obstacle is my depression (bipolar). I was sick this week but I think the sickness triggered a depression episode for me. I think not working out made me feel depressed, which kind of spiraled. Almost every time I get off track with my workouts it's because I've been depressed. I've gained 2 more lbs this week and it's not because I was trying to gain weight/muscle either. I just keep eating. I feel like if I could get my moods under control I could stay on track with my goals. I get frustrated and feel like I'm constantly starting over. I guess that's how it goes.

I'd say food. Sometimes I have no self control and I just want want want.

I had a big thing typed out and a 503 error ate it. *sigh*.

I said 2 things. Thyroid and husband. Medication is just a bandaid for my thyroid condition and it's likely to get worse. So I need to get better BEFORE it gets worse. And hubby needs to stop eating like a child and grow the hell up and eat like a man. Tacos, nachos. pizza and burgers are not what grown up men should be eating all the time. Once in a while yes.. but not as a weekly staple.

being post-partum. I'm really anxious to get back to a routine, and I *feel* almost like I could, but I know I should wait.

I am the exact same way. I get depressed and I eat....and eat....and eat, and it never makes it better. I just end up regretting it and feeling more depressed than I was before.

Definitely time here. Between 4 kids, DH, homeschooling, and work, it's hard to fit it in!

Food. I'm feeling so exhausted and overwhelmed right now. Food keeps me going.

DS woke up at 5.30 this morning and I started crying because I felt so exhausted. The last couple if days I have felt completely drained. This morning I decided that something has to change. I reckon that eating carb filled foods is actually making me feel worse. Today I started counting calories again.

Hopefully I will start to have more energy soon

Time. Between working, the kids and their activities, it's hard to set aside a block of time for working out. And if I'm in a rush to get somewhere, then I tend to eat junk. Not good.

Thanks Jaidynsmum!!

Time and getting out of bed in the mornings. If I had more time I could workout at night but as it is my nights are packed with family time, so I get up early in the morning to workout hence my second obstacle. some mornings my bed just feels way too good and I can't get up..

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
