Could it be the weather?

Friday, October 22, 2010

My never ending quest to exercise and keep myself in line has all but come to an end. I was so excited to do it... was pumped with the idea and thrilled to lose.

Then in the course of a weekend... I just gave up. I sat on my butt all weekend. I did not exercise. I did not eat as healthy as I should. Then... that weekend became a week.

The weather outside has gotten cold and I just don't want to go out there. Sure I could be doing something inside my house... but... I just don't.

I've been feeling overwhelmed these past few weeks with to many things I need to get done and accomplished and my own health has taken a back seat... when it should have taken front row.

This has and continues to be my downfall. I just don't know how to over come it.... which stresses me out more. I want this weight loss to happen like you wouldn't know... but I just can't seem to stay focused for very long. It's aggravating.

    So the weather can have a lot to do with it. When it gets colder, the body shifts into a fat storage mode to "survive" the winter. I know when its cloudy and yucky outside ALL I wanna do is curl up on the couch and watch TV or read. A good trick I learned is to focus on just maintaining during the holidays - don't stress out about losing weight during November & December, just push to not gain anything. Then after the holidays are over, you can focus again on losing. It makes things a little easier to deal with this time of year since you don't have to stress about dropping weight with everything else going on.

    Your personality seems like mine - you're an all or nothing kind of girl - which means if you're not working out, you're not really motivated to keep nutrition in line either. But in reverse, its easier to stay on track if you're doing both at the same time.

    Its hard to build habits, but if you just force yourself to get up and work out I can guarantee you you'll feel better once you're done. I've never finished a workout feeling crappier than when I started. You'll get back on track - I know it!
