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.
