I don't know how you all are doing with motivation..
Mine hasn't been the best over the last four months.
I have held on to all i have lost (or all the health I have gained)
But have felt little to no motivation to go forward.
I thought it was fear...but no...
I thought it was boredom...maybe with the food.
But I got bored with the food two or three months in..
It's how I view the battle.
It became less a battle and more a lifestyle.
I allowed myself more calories every three days or so then I needed for weight loss.
which is great if you just want to maintain.
And I think, for a while, I did.
I have been going at this quite a while...and to lose weight you have to be a bit obsessive about it.
I wanted to set it down for a bit.
without losing what I had gained (or lost)
So I did.
weight 150 lbs.
considering I weighed maybe two or three times in the last two months...pretty good.
that came from tracking and budgeting my calories like money in a bank account.
I got some parts of my life back on track (like my house)
I dabbled in my art again...spent more time with my kids...
Ate some food that wasn't on my weight loss plan (tasty)
realized the food wasn't THAT good...I don't miss it.
Now I am ready to obsess a bit.
So..back to one hour of cardio six days a week...plus whatever toning I do on top of that.
That will be about 1 hour and 20 minutes to 1 hour and 30 minutes a day.
back to 1500 calorie *steel curtain zone* (did this today along with the exercise)
It's less about weighing now than finding the fire to finish strong.
tracking daily...having that deficit daily.
exercising HARD daily.
no more excuses.
No more delays.
Do, or Do NOT there is no TRY.
To find your fire, redefine good enough.
is mediocre good enough?
not for me.
Is that extra roll of fat around my mid section good enough?
It might have been for 262 lb Chris...
But not for 150 lb Chris
For me...150 lbs is not good enough.
Have a great night guys.
*steel curtain zone is a trademark of a Daily diary of a winning loser....Thanks Sean.
