I must confess that in the past two weeks I have started slacking BIG TIME. My habits may not have reverted to as bad as they were before I started trying to lose weight but they have been pretty awful. It doesn't take much for me to get thrown off track. When I do, it can be a real challenge to start things back up. When I eat bad I start to feel depressed and when I'm depressed I eat bad. It's a vicious cycle that I need to break.
How do you stay motivated?
Apparently I don't. When I am on the right path I just tell myself that all the hard work the day before wasn't for nothing and I have to stick it out. Guess that's not all that effective though, huh?
Favorite work out this week?
I didn't work out per se but my favorite form of exercise this week was going to the pool.
Do you have a "cheat" day?
Everyday was a cheat day this week. When I'm on the right track though I do try and allow myself one day to eat something I wouldn't on a normal healthy day.
Do you have a gym membership?
I've never been big on gyms. Probably because I've never been to one. My in laws have a treadmill in their basement and from time to time I use that.
Do you eat fast food?
I absolutely know I shouldn't but I do occasionally. I'm not even going to lie and say I choose a healthier option like a salad when I do. If I eat at McDonald's you best believe I'm ordering the nastiest, greasiest meal on the menu.
Do you have a workout buddy?
No, but I think it would help a lot if I did. That's a big reason I started this link up: to have some support from others.
Who is your biggest supporter?
My husband for sure. He questions me about if I worked out and about if what I'm eating is the best option. I just give him some sorry excuse about how I'm too tired to exercise or give him a puppy dog look and express how I need that bowl of ice cream and he melts. Maybe not the best trainer but he loves me whether I'm carrying extra weight or not. He supports me and makes me feel good about myself.
How satisfied are you with the progress you're making?
I was feeling very satisfied until my progress got derailed.
