Staying Focused

Posted Jan 07 2010 12:00am

First of all, I just have to say that I am so sore today from the 30 Day Shred that I can barely walk. Happens every time. It’s such a good workout. The only problem is that I am not able to run today as I had planned to because I am SO SORE. I was thinking about doing the 30 Day Shred 30 days in a row soon, but I’m not sure I can handle that!

Yesterday went well. Only problem was that I got to snacking later on in the evening. I tracked everything and I am still on points.

This morning we woke up to 6 inches of snow. My husband’s work told him they didn’t want them coming in today because of the road conditions and they were to get worse as the day goes by, because of increasing winds. So he took me to work from 7-10 and then picked me up. I love it when I don’t have to drive on the terrible roads! We headed over to the University book store to get the books that I couldn’t find online- so expensive! We then went to Panchero’s for lunch- which I didn’t make the best decisions at and to top it off, had Coldstone for dessert. I counted this as 32 points! THAT’S INSANE! But I’m still within my points.

I keep falling back into these old habits. Why can’t I seem to eat healthy 100% of the time? Why do I keep letting myself slip up? I’m having a very hard time getting motivated. I don’t have that spark that you have when you first start dieting. It’s gotten mundane. But this is life and I’ll have to deal with it.

I read some of your blogs and don’t know where you get your dedication? Losing 100 + lbs in a year? I lost 40 lbs. in a year. That’s very slow and I know I could do better if I always stayed focused. What do you do to stay focused? Any tips to help me on this would be greatly appreciated.

I know that overall, all that matters is that I keep plugging along. It’s not about how fast I can lose weight, but sometimes I get really impatient. I have no right to be impatient if I’m not doing everything I can to lose the weight.

Hubby and I are going to spend the rest of the day just relaxing. Looking forward to it!! :)
