The last couple of weeks or so I have really got back into working out properly. I was still going to the gym, but I was definitely not putting in as much effort as I could have. But finally I seem to have my gym mojo back.
I finally had the courage to weigh myself as well. In the last year I have put on 2 stone (28pounds), so I have a bit of work to do. But I am motivated and determined to lose it. I am not going to put too much pressure on myself, I will be happy if I lose half of what I have put on.
Doing the workouts in the gym is not a problem, I really enjoy them. The big problem is my diet. I have gotten used to eating things that really are not that healthy and I am finding it very hard to keep to a good healthy diet.
Willpower is seriously lacking right now. I think I am just about working off the rubbish I eat everyday which is why I never seem to lose anything. Healthy food really doesn’t interest me at all, I really have to force it down which is why I am finding it hard to stick to any diet.
I think I am going to have to look at my diet differently, maybe not try and introduce new healthy foods, but make the meals that I normally eat healthier. Having more veg and less potatoes, grilling things instead of frying them. See how that goes for a while, then try and introduce new things.
My determination is going to help me achieve everything I want too. It is going to take sometime and it won’t be easy and I am sure I will make a few slip ups along the way, but it will be worth it.
Everything is coming together nicely, I am feeling good, life is good. My family is happy, I could not ask for more. I am even treating myself to a sports massage this evening (thought I think it will be more painful than relaxing), it is nice to be able to treat myself like this now and then.
Take care everyone.
