Struggling

Wednesday, April 22, 2015

I'm normally an upbeat positive person. My blog is normally full of encouragement. Well this one isn't.

I have been struggling with my eating since Sunday. Normally I track everything that I eat, watch what I eat and drink lots of water. I just haven't for the past few days.

I'm tired physically and mentally. I'm not getting as much sleep as I would like. I need to get this part of my life back on track also.

I'm eating whatever I want however I'm not overeating. Strange isn't. I'm still conscious of how much I eat.

I'm trying to get back on track. It is hard when you get off track. It is a struggle to make sure that you get yourself back to where you had been prior to the setback. My setbacks normally don't last this long. Normally it is one day and I'm right back on track.

Today, I'm working on tracking my food. I'm working on drinking my water (not doing so well with this).

Any and all support is greatly appreciated.

    I hear ya, hon!!! I feel like my motivation frequently turns on a dime. I've often said, it's not a simple matter of overindulging or eating things I shouldn't. I can suddenly get into a mood where I just don't care. Fortunately, it usually passes fairly quickly. I'll bet the same will happen to you.

    Please feel free to blog or share your thoughts on the team chat thread.

    I share your struggle! Only I'm tracking my discretions, and not doing very well with portion control. My birthday was this weekend, and my son's was today. It was also secretary's day, so goodie day/week at work. I've done way too much partying. I could starve myself for the next 3 days and probably still gain weight. Gotta start saying no to all the goodies and get back on track.

    I understand, it is hard to get back on track.
    What helps me is taking a step back and just
    reminding myself why I started.
    Go back to your 10 reasons why list and re-read
    them and just remind yourself that if you
    don't snap out of the
    derailment you are going backwards, it will be even harder
    to get back at a point way, way, way down the road, so you
    might as well do it now, yes, it will be difficult, but not as
    difficult as it will be if you wait.

    Maybe shake it off and get back to it.

    I like the idea of reading you past positive blogs.
    It's like reading your journal and that can be quite powerful.

    Hang in there, you will get back on track. At least you are less than a week into your setback and not almost a month like myself. I'm working to find balance with my food intake and exercising.

    emoticon on NOT overeating!! That's a BIG deal my friend.

    Some days, some weeks are hard. Perhaps a day is too long of a chunk of time to contemplate. Try just focusing on the next step, only the next one.

    Great post! I've not been on track myself. Easter and my birthday happened. But in the midst of it all, I've been sick and barely eating, what I want instead of what is good for me.

    Being tired physically and mentally is okay. It's human. But don't beat yourself up! Comparing who you are today to who you "should be" or were last week doesn't help you get to where you want to be. We're talking about 4 days here. Less if you start to get back on track today. YOU CAN DO IT!

    Small steps, small steps. Track today, drink water today. You're already not overeating--so give yourself some credit there. Do a mental check in with your goals and think about how good it's gonna feel tonight when you've gotten your feet back in the right direction.

    Me too me too! I fell by the wayside this past weekend and want to hit the re-boot button today. It's hard.

    I feel your struggle! I haven't been exercising like I should. Let's push the reboot button and we can start fresh together!

    The one thing I love about Spark is it's the one place where there's always a "do-over"!
