Some days I am so on board and gung ho about being strict with my eating and working out, and some days I just don't have it.
When I first started losing weight, I had such motivation and was seeing results, so my head was completely in the game. I never cheated and was just so strict. And well, it worked. Crazy, right?
But then after I lost about 70 lbs (out of the 100 I am working towards), I lost steam and had a couple things that derailed me. Life changes, stress and emotional stuff sure throws a wrench in the whole motivation equation. So that's what these last couple months were; hard and motivation-lacking. Last month, I worked out pretty much every day, but didn't eat right, so I hardly lost anything.
Right now I am feeling motivated. I am working out AND eating right (the most important thing). This past weekend was blah and I was eating more than usual and high caloric foods... just because I was feeling out of it.
I don't have all the answers, but I am going to make a huge effort to stay motivated from now on. And if one day, I'm not feeling it, then I think I need to just let that day happen and not feel too bad and get all guilty because that just leads to more bad days.
However, I do not plan on there being any horribly bad days in the near future because I am back on track and want it so bad!
