Back tracked - and how to get back on track?
I back tracked. Majorly. I was doing so well, losing weight, had more energy then ever and then about July I just quit. I don't know why. It started with getting a deathly flu that lasted almost two weeks, then I was backed up with work in my business, my house and fridge became a mess, and I had to travel some.
So last weekend I cleaned my house and office completely, organized my closets again - and I'm feeling like I'm ready for a fresh start. I got on the scale and the "damage" of junk food and eating out and not exercising is +8 pounds, weight I worked hard to get off. I started this at 180 and now I'm at 176, it's so depressing, I was down to 168 and 166 on good days...
I had a goal of reaching my birthday March 4 at my fittest and best weight in years. So there's four months left, is it possible? Likely not the fittest but certgainly I can lose at least 1 lb per week if I focus - four months - 16 lbs and get down to 160, yet I'd really like to get to 155 for LIFE.
My clothes don't fit again, I know I messed up. But the past is the past, the key is not to back slide. So out with the exercise journal. Back to the 3-4 times a week of weight training that I loved. And 4-5 days of even 30 min of cardio. And calorie counting that I don't enjoy. Perhaps the 5 Factor diet that's popular.
Any ideas on how to get back on track? Anyone else done this after months of hard work?
