It's starting to move towards winter here where I am and I find myself no longer satisfied by my usual lunch and dinner ideas. I used to happily much on cucumber, carrots and baby tomatoes but now I really just want something with more substance. I have been taking soup to work but I still find I am hungry and my sweet tooth has become insane. I need some advice on what I can do to satisfy myself a bit more without resorting to eating things that are not all that healthy. At the moment I am not in a place where I feel like I am out of control eating-wise, but I am a bit worried / annoyed that I seem to be craving so much lately.
My main problem though is that I find myself so unmotivated to work out, for the last 2 months my steady routine has dwindled to off and on workouts sometimes with a laps of over a week in between. I have been good this week so far and have done half an hour each day since Sunday, and already yesterday I find myself half what through the work out and not feeling as tired as I usually did. I used to work out in the morning first thing but now I find I just wanna snuggle in bed and get a few more minutes sleep... Then at night after work, it's getting home, tidying, making food, wanting to relax and finally guilting and goading myself into reluctantly doing a work out, it just feels like I am at a constant battle with myself these days.
I am still losing, albeit slower, and I have been doing well, I have lost almost 20 kg. I am about half way to where I want to be, well, just under, so I just don't get why I am losing momentum like this, I should be pushing forward harder then ever to my goal but somehow I just find myself feeling kinda 'meh'.
So any advice, recipes, words of wisdom, personal stories or even a good kick in the pants would be welcome.
