I’ve been struggling lately with living my fit, strong life. I’m having a hard time getting myself to the gym or out for anything more strenuous than walking Penny. I’m also not eating as well as I would like. I know this is just a mental block on my part but I’m having a hard time getting over it.
I thought perhaps if I wrote about it here, it would help. You know, share my misery and see if that helps. Sometimes sharing the things you struggle with really helps relieve some of the struggle.
I’ve allowed sweets to come back into my life. I was doing so well with not eating sugar but suddenly I’m back to eating baked goods. I slipped in some ice cream but it made me feel so sick that it was easier to remove that from my life.
Being around people who eat in a healthy way makes it easier for me but since I no longer spend much time around people, that support has disappeared.
I also struggle with having a schedule because I’m able to create my own schedule. I really don’t manage to do that so my eating has become erratic.
I’m not complaining because I know I could make some simple changes and things would get better, even if only a little bit.
Perhaps if I make one or two small commitments to myself, I’d get back on track.
The problem is that if I’m not exercising and eating well, my moods plummet. If I’m feeling down or anxious, it becomes difficult to exercise and eat well. You know, a Catch 22 sort of thing.
If you have any advice for me, I’d love to hear it. I know we all struggle with things at different times but right now I’m struggling to be fit and strong.
