I have lost my groove. Big time. I'm not even anywhere NEAR diet mode anymore. I'm just eating pretty much whatever I want and not exercising AT ALL anymore. Not sure why, other than I'm just not feeling it.

Of course, two months ago if I wasn't 'feeling' it, I'd have just forced myself to do it anyway! What's changed? I feel like I need a break. Which is ridiculous, because this is supposed to be a new lifestyle and you don't get a break from a lifestyle!

I'm mad at myself right now, but not enough to snap out of it. Sigh. I'm not expecting a loss at all this week, in fact I'm pretty sure I'll be up at least a pound. No point getting upset about it, I know why it's happening. The problem is ME and it's up to ME to turn it back around!

Plan? Not sure. Just to do a workout today would be a start in the right direction. Also, to focus on my portions again. Better yet, just to focus PERIOD. Get out of auto-pilot mode!

I like that. I'm not required to be perfect 100% of the time. There will be days (and sadly, weeks) when I am off my game and backslide a bit, but the key is getting back on track as soon as possible, before I'm back to square one again!


  1. Don't waste all that hard work, Missy! Of course you don't have to be perfect, but you're right: if it's a new "lifestyle", you can't take a week or two off (or however long).

    Get up and do SOMETHING today... 30 minutes of some sort of exercise today, that's my challenge to you. At least thirty minutes most days, isn't that what's recommended? (And no, a leisurely stroll doesn't count; you've gotta sweat.)

    You don't want to do this yo-yo thing for the rest of your life.

    Love ya.

  2. Thanks Shauna! I did end up doing a two mile walk on the treadmill that took about 35 minutes so yay! :)

    I think I'm struggling with a bit of a down cycle right now and that is really the problem. Makes me not care about exercise and just want to be munching all day! No worries...I'll bounce back! :)

  3. Good for you, Miss!

    I'm proud of you. I know it's so hard to do Anything At All when you're feeling down... let alone exercise. Good job:0)
