Our motto in bootcamp is to be "unstoppable"... We chant it after every work out. Usually afterward I do feel like I might just be unstoppable... ready to conquer the world... or at least another day at the office. So it got me wondering, what is it that makes us feel "stoppable" some times and what can we do to make sure we always have that feeling of being "unstoppable" when it comes to our weight loss goals?
We all have our vices...our weaknesses, our reservations and fears. Do you have a hard time keeping your diet in check... do you have lack of time or motivation to exercise? Or are you really just making excuses?
I wanted to make this post brief but I'd like you to share something in the comments section... don't worry you can post anonymously if you want! Talk about anything that you might be struggling with in your diet or exercise and maybe together we can talk you through it and find a way to break past it. :)
I'll start with mine... I plateau and it frustrates the hell out of me. I've been teetering on the edge of 85lbs of weight loss for a month now and today the scale was up a pound. I exercise just as much if not more than ever... Soccer season is in full swing and I'm playing 2-3 games a weekend (which means I'm sprinting like crazy up and down that field) I do 3 days of boot camp workouts a week and I run 1 other day. That's 6 days of intense exercise, and sometimes I feel like it's not enough! But my weight is still staying nice and even, and I beat myself up because I work so hard and see no results at all! Then to see the scale go up on top of it makes me want to throw my hands up in the air and scream! I don't want to work out 7 days a week because rest is important too to avoid injury, and sometimes I'm too tired after work to add a second work out in the evening. I don't know what else its going to take, what else I need to do to push myself that extra step?!
I'm concerned with my braces that I'm not getting enough of a balanced diet but it hurts to chew sometimes and I'm also not allowed to eat really crunchy foods, so I haven't been eating as much salad as I used to. Maybe I need to redouble my efforts on my diet again and give something up?
Ok now it's your turn! Please share... it helps to vent...trust me :)
