I have been getting on the scale at home in the mornings expecting to see a lower number. Well, in all honesty I think I am getting on the scale each morning hoping to just not see a higher number.
The sad part is that I am not doing anything to really show a lower, or less high, number on the scale. I still have not found my umph!
Mostly I have lost my exercise umph. I just don’t feel like exercising. I know activity makes me feel good. I know I don’t have to sweat to death to still make it effective. I also know that if I just commit to 20 minutes then I will feel better than if I had done nothing at all.
So, what happens when you KNOW all of this but still don’t want to?
Well normally I would say you just pull up your big girl panties and do it anyway. But that isn’t working either.
The second thing I would say is that your food needs to be on track if your exercise is lacking. I am at least holding my own on the food front. I am cooking meals again and eating my leftovers at work. I am also not turning to the crap foods that don’t have any nutritional value. There are some positives despite having little to no motivation! Plus, I know in the back of my mind what “free loading” for too long can do to your weight loss and maintenance plan.
We are headed out of town for a few days to stay at a B&B. This could pose a challenge so I am committing to stay mindful. I should also prepare myself mentally for a gain upon my return. I am not saying I will eat like a fat kid but I am staying that I should prepare that being out of my usual routine on top of lack of motivation prior could bring on some unwanted pounds.
