So ever since Christmas, I've sorta-semi-slacked on everything. Part of it has to do with my living situation and part of it has to do with a general sense of apathy.
I've hovered the same weight since early November - fluctuating 3-5 pounds in either direction. So I guess I'm thankful that I haven't really gained back any weight, but I'm not progressing any further towards my goal, either.
The living situation involves a roommate who has moved in and who brings junk food and things that tempt me into the house. Now, he shouldn't be penalized because I'm on a diet. I'm reluctant to tell him he *cannot* have these things in the house, but I know myself as well and I am having a hard time resisting temptation. A loaf of garlicky bread - I wind up having multiple slices. A bag of corn chips - I wind up eating 2 handfuls unconsciously while I'm watching TV. I have to get my self-control ... well .. under control!!!
The other thing is that my gym-buddy has been ill, first with bronchitis and now with a pinched sciatic nerve - so of course no gym for her. Last year I was motivated to go even when she didn't, but this year I just can't seem to push myself. And when I do go, I wind up doing 30-40 minutes of cardio, slacking my way through a measly 20 mins of weights, and skipping abs alltogether.
Someone please give me a kick in the a$$. I *KNOW* that this is good for me. I feel great when I'm eating as I should and hitting the gym regularly and hard. I love the way I look now (60+ lbs down and 35 to go) and I know I'll look even better if I get my act together. I have 2 tops in my closet for this spring/summer that are my "rewards" to fit into and the next big thing will be when I get to trade in my jeans and slacks (14s and 16s) for size 12s.
I can get there soon if I'd just buckle down.
So motivate me guys. I'm in serious need of a good talking to here.
