I have been feeling really fed up lately. I think it’s because the weight hasn’t been coming off this week and last week it came off so quick.
Yesterday was particularly bad. It was one of those days that I didn’t want to do anything, I was really bored. I don’t know why but I find when I am bored I can’t get motivated to do anything. That includes healthy eating.
I did ok until lunch – there was a tiny piece of cake that I just had to have. It was the nicest cake I have ever tasted. For the rest of the day I thought I had really blown it. I felt that I had totally let myself down.
This morning though I woke up and decided to forget about yesterday and start afresh today. I thought sitting and wallowing in my failings wasn’t going to help me at all.
I know that I can’t stop but sometimes it’s hard not to when you can’t see the way forward.
This morning I had my training and he got me on the running machine. I ran without stopping for 6 minutes. I know 6 minutes doesn’t seem that long but when last year I couldn’t even run for 6 seconds I think that is a great improvement. When it was finished I wasn’t even out of breath I felt I could have ran for longer.
So my training today has helped me get over the disappointment of yesterday. It has made me want to carry on. It has shown me how far I have come, it has made me not want to stop.
