I have lost a considerable amount of weight since embarking on my latest get fit, get healthy, lose weight attempt. I have lost over 2 and a half stone, to be exact. On Saturday, I felt like I was getting somewhere, I felt slimmer, flatter, trimmer. Fast forward to today and suddenly I feel immensely tired, bloated, overweight and uncomfortable.
I go to bootcamp on Sunday morning, Tuesday and Thursday evenings, which in this heat has been even more intense. As well as that, I have been going to the gym 2-3 times per week, making 5-6 workouts all together. Plus doing ab work and resistance at home, and loads of walking.
So what is going on? Its so hard to stay motivated, to keep going, but what is the alternative? Frankly and simply put - there is none. If I give up, I go right back to the start. If I keep going - there is a chance I will get my mojo back, and feel like its working again.
Right now, I'm having this sort of internal argument with myself that goes something like this - "I don't want to exercise - I have to exercise". " I want to eat crisps - no I am not eating crisps". "Its not fair" - "I need to work harder". On it goes.
Why do some weeks just seem more challenging than others? Why do some weeks feel like I'm gaining weight instead of losing it? So frustrating, but I know I'm not alone in this battle. I just need to work out how to ride it out until my will power puts in an appearance again!!
