I have still only lost 2.5KG no weight went off me this week. I know exactly why as well. Last week I did 0 exercise and it showed in my 0KG weight loss this week. I had a sinus infection so my cold was in full swing. Looking back I felt rubbish all week and I choose to be at work as it was a big week. I did 0 swimming and walking as I was just trying to get through the work day. I have thought reflecting on last week I should have done something anything even if it was just stretching. Back to it this week and even harder then ever on the exercise as I let it drop last week. Starting tonight walking 12 KM home!
How do people keep there motivation going?
I have been pretty good at keeping it going and keeping my focus on the end goal but last week it slipped. I would love a way to get around those moments when its tough cos you are busy or your not as healthy as usual… any suggestions are welcome!
The festive season has not been to bad so far. We have had the BBQ so we have been in control of the food. We have had meat with salad and roasted pumpkin/ butternut squash. We did have dips but I provided carrot sticks and celery sticks for them…no crisps. No beer is hard and no wine. I had one small glass of wine this weekend and that was my one moment of weakness feeling sorry for myself cos I had a cold…. (it annoys me now when I think back grrr).
I was talking to a girlfriend about the way we see ourselves. She was telling me the bits she didn’t like about herself and how she feels the pressure to work-out but has one of the craziest work schedules and struggles to find time. We do put a lot of pressure on ourselves as women but I do like that we talk about it openly with friends and get that support from other females. It did make me think do men have the same thoughts? I wonder if they ever talk about it or feel like they can’t? Might try get it out of MK…but that will be like trying to get blood from a stone.
I have not been good with keeping up on my mindfulness book and journal which I will also get back into tonight. My routine basically went out of wack for a week and I do feel out of control which I don’t like. Hopefully I will be back on track next week and have a better result.
I do have motivation …example below is I wanted to use my new camera at sunrise in Bronte and I did it. I left my house at 4:45AM and captured the most amazing shots….so just need to find that all the time!
