My friend Paula @ Paulawannacracker, had this awesome post today and asked this question:
What grade would you give your *efforts* for staying on track?
Well I would give myself a D-....
I do some things right, but many things wrong....Lately, I'm just not willing to put the whole package together and I'm not sure why!
Some of you out there rock! You're making big stuff happen!!!! How do you do it? How do you have time to do everything you need to do. How do you stay focused? How do you remember everything? How do you set a goal and hit it?
I exercise 5-6 days per week and I work really hard. I eat a clean diet for "most" of the day and then I usually blow it. Won't stay out of stuff. As I'm writing, I keep wanting to say "can't", but the reality is I just won't do what I have to do, I won't focus, I won't! It's frustrating!
Why, at this point, with having some success, would I choose to struggle now? What is the deal?
I have said that I would like to lose 20 pounds by Christmas and I just joined a challenge at my gym, where if I'm the big loser I could win some prizes. I would love to do this, but if I don't get it together it will never happen. What does it take to make goals happen?
Anybody been here? Any suggestions? Is this a seasonal thing.....is this disobedience....is this a set back (well obviously)....Am I doomed?
I have to say, that I've been able to answer these questions. Obviously I'm capable, I've lost 51 pounds so far. But right now my head is fuzzy on how to push through this. It's almost like...yesterday I could tell you how to do this and today I don't have a clue.....Like there's nothin's in my noggin'. Does that make sense? It's perplexing. Maybe I'm tired. Not sure what's up. Just feeling really lost right now.
Chris I need a %&$ kickin' just about now!
