Sometimes things click and sometimes they don't. And sometimes things that once clicked suddenly unclick for no apparent reason.

I can be on a roll with exercise and eating healthy and all of the sudden I lose all motivation and self-control. I start making excuses...it's too cold, I'm too hungry to eat a small portion, I don't want to drink water...etc.

Then almost as suddenly as it stops, I seem to get back on track. I exercise, I drink my water, I track my food, and become very conscious of my decisions.

I'm currently in the "back on track" phase. I love this phase. I'm feeling good. I have more energy because I'm eating healthier and exercising more. I want this to stick. I want to keep this up. I like seeing the number on the scale go down instead of up. I want to know that when I pull out my spring/summer clothes that they'll fit like they did a year ago - because right now they do not fit!

I find that it's easier for me to stick with it if I come here to SP and make a blog post of ramblings . It's a way of being held accountable even if only a few people read and/or comment! So if you've made it this far, THANK YOU! :)

    I'm with you all the way. Currently for me, I'm not clicking, but I will be soon enough. We can do it!!!

    Love and hugs,

    Glad you're back!
    I find things work out better when I don't overthink things and don't think too far into the future, but just concentrate on feeling good in the moment. Good nutrition and exercise do that.
    Make that "back on track" phase last, one moment at a time.
