As much as I have tried, I think I must pause my journey to becoming a Better Me at this time. This is not the encouraging news that you are looking for on this Better Tuesday, but I just can’t figure out how to continue. I’ve tried over the past couple months to change my diet, eating habits and exercise regime, and as you know, I haven’t experienced the weight loss that I expected; especially in comparison to the effort expended. Now, I’m pretty much at a cross roads and I feel too confused and too discouraged to move.
Despite being about 2 weeks behind the program schedule, I trekked along because I felt that I could catch up. Now, I’m 3 weeks behind, only about 5 pounds lighter, it’s over 100 degrees in DC and I just can’t find the time to devote to myself. I say myself, because I really didn’t care too much about keeping up with the program, but I’m also being realistic and the next few weeks are only going to get busier.
This past week I thought not about Better U – I ate whatever, whenever and there was no exercise in sight. I was tired when I got home and what little exercise I was getting (by walking in the afternoon) I could no longer get because it was too hot. Tell me, when/where am I going to find the time? Where am I going to find the motivation?
