Hello! Happy almost holidays!
I had an excellent day today. My mind was right, concentration was fantastic, and my positivity through the roof. I don’t know if it is due to my upcoming vacation or a new found zest? Likely the vacation… 😉
I am posting this as I’m riding a stationary bike at the gym. Talk about multi-tasking! This may be a short one!
This road to recovery is feeling better as the days go by. My cravings are decreasing and I’m feeling better in my clothes. I wore a shirt today that I haven’t been able to wear in about 7 months. Now…if any of you have had this experience, you know how great that feels! Maybe that is the reason for my perkiness! Is it possible to have this happen only 2.2 weeks in? (probably not… But I’m going to teeter on the positive side).
I really truly whole-heartedly believe that positivity is the key here. This past summer I was very negative and hard on myself. I thought that the only way to be happy again would be to compete and get back down to a lower weight. So I started training again and dieting again. I was reeved up. I was determined. Then 8 weeks in decided to check my progress by stepping on the scale. I had actually gained…something that should have been impossible. I was shocked and felt hopeless. I knew there was something wrong. I fell into a sort of sadness. Then I smartened up. I decided to train my body to get back to normal…instead of punishing it with tons of exercise and too clean eating, I am scaling back and feeling great! My positive outlook is keeping me going.
Is anyone out there struggling with motivation? Trying so hard but not seeing results? Keep your chin up. Take care of your mind and body…the rest will fall into place.
Wow this was tough to write on my phone! I’m getting some funny looks at the gym. Ah well! To each their own!
