I'm in a diet funk. I'm totally happy to be wearing my Express jeans again. I'm happy about the shrinking mid-section and thighs too. BUT…ugh! I miss bread. And pasta. And bread. Did I already say that? I've reached the halfway there FUNK it seems. Even my exercise program is going stale. I'm bored and tired and losing motivation.
Remember when I said that it was going to be a battle from here on out? It totally is. I need to regroup, refocus and get myself back in line with the program. I had a loss this week but it feels, well, unexciting. Am I being totally ungrateful right now? Probably a little bit. I just want to be done and to my goal already!! I want to be in transition so I can be moving on out of pre-packaged meals and into whole foods.
See…don't let me fool you into thinking that I've got this whole thing in the bag. I don't. I'm still struggling here and there…and especially this week. I feel like I need to confess to hold myself accountable:
Confession #1: I've completely stopped tracking/logging in my food journal. I'm fumbling through the day barely eating all the meals I'm supposed to. And struggling to eat every 2-3 hours. At the time of writing this I haven't eaten for six hours. (Don't worry, I'm setting this laptop down and going to grab something now!)
Confession #2: One of the most important things on this diet is drinking tons of water….I'm not even tracking this lately…and therefore my points and everything have gone way down. What am I doing!? Someone slap me!
Confession #3: I've had a few meals out…and although I've still chosen healthy options…I'm kidding myself to think that its not having a negative effect on my plan. I need to get my mind back in the game here friends.
I feel like I've reached "the Wall" in my weight-loss marathon! I need someone to cue up some motivational music…and convince me that I need to press through this. Oh and don't even get me started on Jillian. Thank God I have a break on Monday. (Only 3 days left of the Shred level 2!)
How are you doing with your goals? Have any advice on how to get my mojo back!?
I'm proud of these choices:
I'm staying with the 30 Day Shred.
I'd like to work more on:
Everything mentioned above!!!
I totally cheated when:
Not sure how, but because I've not been monitoring well…I know I'm cheating a bit!
How did you do this week?
