Somewhere Between Here and There!
I wish I knew the secret that so many people seem to have. It's that between here and there secret. Right here, right now I have the resolve, the desire and all the optimism required to make it to next weeks weigh-in with a great loss. The problem for me is not the "here and now," it's the "there" that gets me every time. Why is it that when I can get up in the morning, I am so ready to take on the day. I prepare my breakfast, get my lunch ready to take to work, I take the meat out of the freezer for dinner and in that moment I'm on top of it all. Then all it takes is one moment of boredom, one moment of unexpected stress for me to realize my resolve is well.... not there anymore. How do I lose it so easily? Why does this keep happening? To be fair, I have not lost sight completely since I started this journey of eating healthy. I just feel like I go two steps forward only to find that I am also going one step backwards. It frustrates me that I have a hard time even making it one week without a setback. How does one get the mindset of a trainer, how does one set a goal and move toward that goal with out flinching. I am losing, and even though I want to blame my old age, my sluggish metabolism, I would get to my goal so much quicker if I could I could get from here to there. Oh well!
