Monday Weigh In Day... and still feeling "off"


It gets in the damn way sometimes doesn't it??   At least for the past few weeks, my day to day life has gotten in the way.  It seems to have taken over my willpower and my drive to achieve my goals.  It sucks, but it is what it is.  It's REAL life.  Even when I have the time to go to the gym, lately I havent wanted to.  I sit at home and think about things.  My mind sometimes races at night thinking of all the things I have to do the next day, or things I didn't get done that day, etc.   So I'll wake up tired, but get to work with every intention of hitting the gym after work.   Then - 2:30 rolls around and I'm tired.   The afternoon slug hits me, usually with the afternoon snack monster, they're a combo deal... those bitches!   I think they're friends with the weekend fat girl too... 

Anyway - Last Monday, I made 4 goals for myself.  I stuck to 1 of the 4.

I got at least 80 grams of protein in each day.   That's it.

I didn't make it to the gym 5 days, but I did go 4, for 240 minutes.   So it's not a complete fail.

4 of the 7 days I stuck to 1400 calories.  The other 3 were a ridiculous mess.

And because of the food choices I made, my carbs were way over 120 those 3 days.

Suck it up and move on right?? 

Today's a new day, that begins a new week.  I'm now down to 3 1/2 weeks to meet my goal of 199 lbs by September 1st.

And today's weight was....

Exactly the same as last week.  

The only goal I'm setting for myself this week is keep my head out of my ass.   Have you ever tried to run 3 miles with your head lodged up there??  It's hard!  :)  


  1. We have all been there. I am so unmotivated lately. I feel like I don't have time to breath. It's hard being grown up :(


  2. Thanks doll!! And yep... Sometimes I just feel so overwhelmed

  3. Amen to this post. I did so well all last week and this weekend was an epic fail. I should go to the gym after work but after being out of town the last 5 days I just want to sleep! And I need to grocery shop... But if I don't go today and I didn't go yesterday I will be setting myself up for another epic fail.

  4. I hear and understand all that you say.....I have been totally unmotivated the last few weeks, but I have pulled my big girl panties up and am onboard again. Not sure for how long but we shall see.....

    Pull your big girl panties up....

  5. First let me state that your before and after pic looks AMAZING! I believe you can do it. Good Luck!
