A New Outlook
I have really struggled the last few weeks with staying motivated. Between not feeling well, frustrated because I know I'm not eating "great", and just a general blah and tiredness I have just not had any type of motivation to do anything. I feel guilty if I don't work out,I feel guilty if I do (lack of sleep), I feel guilty if I eat something remotely off SB, etc. I finally realized that I have been trying to focus on too much at the same time. I made a conscious decision that I was going to focus on one thing at a time for a week. For the first week it was getting back into eating right. I decided that if I made it to the gym during that week- great, if not then I wasn't going to beat myself up over it. I started writing down in my notebook everything that crossed my lips. And you know what- it's worked. I have been more conscious in my food choices and I don't feel like I'm killing myself to eat healthy. The next step will be to add the exercise in. I have a goal. I want to be down 8 lbs. from where I started the month. In the first week I gained three so I now have 11 but I'm determined!
