Push, push, and push some more.

So many of us feel stuck, most definitely me! But if I just keep pushing, eventually, something has got to give. I have not been pushing as hard as I should have these last few days. Other things have been on my mind. I have managed to eat right though and so I havent gained any weight. Been maintaining my weight, so I'm happy with that much. However I know it is not time for me to just give up and settle. I feel like my body is stuck there though. Its like HEY! you got back down to where you were, to where you've missed being at for years now, isn't this enough?! Give me a break! And its really hard not to listen to your body. Like Marlee was saying in her blog about it being the toddler who threw a tantrum and you just tend to give in to what it wants.. well I'm gonna put my foot down and say no. I am the adult and my mind is in charge. I say what goes and when enough is enough. I've only just begun and its going to get rough, but I won't give up. I will continue to push and to push until there is no more pushing to do. And even then I will still push myself hard enough to at least maintain. They are right when they say its hard to maintain. Being a little more sedentary lately, I've felt that boredom creep up on me and bored hunger begins.. I've had to find other things to do just so I didnt grab that extra fatty snack I didn't really need, or made sure I grabbed a bag of carrots instead of chips to crunch away on.

I came to the realization last night that maybe I am scared to move forward. maybe that is why things are kind of at a stand still with my weight currently. Maybe that's true... but there is nothing to be afraid of except not trying to better myself when I know I can. So today I woke up and did my cardio right away. I ate well and did my workouts. I feel good. I'm down a pound from yesterday and am hoping to continue the hard work this weekend. Just one day at a time. I can do this. We all can. Now is the time to show it.


  1. Omg! I get like this ALL THE TIME! Even before losing weight, lol! The thing is, we must never stop trying to better ourselves. Even if you were at your goal weight, you can challenge yourself by trying new workouts and activities to maintain without getting bored.

    And I think we all get scared of what awaits us once the weight is gone. Like will I like what I see in the mirror, will this change how I act or who I am. It's all pretty normal I believe to think these things. But I know I'm ready for this extra weight to be gone and I guess I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

    Keep going strong! I know you'll push through this. We all have moments like this, what's important is we don't give up!

  2. Yeah, exactly! Thanks, its nice hearing from others that its normal and they feel the same. I know it is from what I've read about it. But hearing it from someone personally is always more convincing. lol.

    Time to go push some more now! :)
