Progress over perfection! This is what living a real authentic life is about. There's no such thing as being 100% all of the time. That just sets us up for failure, and failure turns into hopelessness and depression. These words of Maggie's speak truth and reality! Life is about LIVING not about deprivation. There will always be ebb and flow! Take a read...
#5monthtestimonial #keepingitreal No pictures or stats this time. Just keeping it real. I started this journey with Anneliese five months ago. There are so many things in my life that have improved. I am now more active, I choose to eat better foods most of the time, I have lost weight. When I am on my game I feel better, I sleep better, I think better, and I look better. I lost 23 pounds at my lowest. I'm now at 19 pounds lost. My BMI and % body fat is down, muscle mass up so that's good but I seem to be stuck.
I know why. I have not been consciously working at my plan. I have been lacking in logging my food and keeping track of water intake. Work and life have been super stressful. I'm probably not dealing with that as well as I usually do. Training is fine but we all know that is not enough. And even though I am getting my workouts in, I have less energy.
All that said, the fact that my overall weight is trending down and I haven't really gained in the past two weeks is a win for me. Life should slow down somewhat after this week.
Anneliese asked me what she could do to help but the reality is I just need to do my plan. I know what to do. Sure she can bug me but I still need to make the choice to keep moving forward.
#commitment I need to get back to working my plan and not being complacent. So I will get back to planning meals and logging food. Should be easier since my travel is limited the next few weeks. I will get back into my routine and work on my mindset. Looking forward to a better next four weeks.
