I shop at our local organic grocery store (PCC) and buy a lot of my food off of their hot deli, soup and salad bar. I am single so I can get by with that; would be harder if you have to cook for a family.
I find that I pretty much have to exercise immediately after I get off work and before I go home and get all crashed out, or I won't do it.
The only way I can do it is to just make the decision that I am GOING to do it whether or not I feel "motivated" (a feeling, and our feelings are very fickle).
What type of plan are you on... eating and exercise?
I wish you every success
Hi There, thank you for your reply. You see, I have a job with varying hours. M & W I work 12 hour shifts - 9am to 9pm, but I have an hour and a half commute give or take, so I cannot go to the gym before work, and when I get home at 10:30pm the gym is closed. Then on Tu & Th I work 8am to 3pm, which I could go to the gym after work, but to be honest I haven't made it a priority. I really do need to though.
I'm actually still losing weight not going to the gym. I'm diabetic, so I follow a lower carb lifestyle (around 80 ish carbs per day). I am also mindful of my caloric intake, and assume I eat around 1500 calories a day, but I do not calorie count.
I honestly do miss working out. But often I'm just so dang tired
