OK Maybe it't not that it is hard to stay motivated so much as it is hard to focus and actually DO the right thing all the time.
I have been craving sweets all week. I never crave sweets- but this week? all week? sweets have been on my mind!
Why is it that it seems like times when I am more focused on a specific goal that it seems harder to actually stick to the plan?
I had a Pumpkin Spice Latte twice this week, today I had three bite size chocolate bars and made pumpkin oatmeal "cookies". UGH!!
I have also stopped working out with my trainer. :( I feel lost and bereft without him. It was the right thing to do for me (and honestly- probably for him) but it is still hard. He has been by my side through almost this whole journey- 5 months... and I DO look good- my muscles etc.. and he played a huge part in my motivation and helping me accomplish these goals..
So this week I have been going at it alone- I only lifted once- did it with my trainer at Lifetime. He is a good egg and takes good care of me- but it is not "my" trianer. I am in search of a new trainer- but this is hard- in reality and emotionally. I have not been as motivated to do the hard work this week. (but to be honest I have been exhausted- so it is probably not that bad of a thing that I am going a little easy this week... but we will see... I need to get my butt in gear!)
Hope you are working out, moving doing something today... we've gotta work off those "cookies."
