How Do You Get Motivated Again?

Monday, March 12, 2012

I tell myself every day that i have to stop eating bad again . I am riding my bike on long, 25-30 mile hard rides on the weekend but I am eating desserts again and I haven't lost any weight in so long. I just don't know how to get revved up again to focus on it. i just want to eat all the junk in the house. when Brett isn't here, i don't keep it in the house but with him here, it's all around and i dive in. accckkkk..... I don't get excited or motivated anymore to focus.

what to do!?! How do you tell yourself NO to that brownie ice cream dish? He never offers me any because he knows i try to be good but i've just been helping myself to whatever. It's so frustrating. And my system is all messed up again because of it. ugh.

At least we're still not eating out, we eat at home. It's just the desserts that are getting me.... ugh.

My problem is i am AWARE of my downfalls but i never know HOW to surpass them.

    Can you look for what motivated you before? Do you need a challenge/reward structure to get you started? Like, if you have a healthy treat (say a piece of fruit) instead of dessert for 7 days, you get a book you've been wanting, or a mani/pedi, or whatever reward fits your budget/desire and would be tempting enough in the long run to make those desserts less tempting (or at least worth skipping in the short term)....

    There is also a new spark challenge about taming a sweet tooth, maybe look at some of those suggestions....see if anything there resonates with you. Good Luck! Motivation can be so fickle....

    emoticon I have been there this week. I did not want to do my exercises or not eat my "treat" foods. I over indulged. I got back on track yesterday by reminding myself that I have four short months until my son's wedding. I do not care how much I lose between now and then - but I want to look better! I am on my 3rd challenge for the year and I will continue! I wish you the best in finding what motivates you!

    Its hard i know. Try to think of your Kidneys and what they do for your body. Bad eating habits are so hard to control, but it makes our Kidneys work harder and they get so tired. And we dont want them to get so tired they have to stop working. Maybe this will help. I know the feeling though.
