OK, so I KNOW what you are doing. I could do it too to be honest. I am ONLY 3# under where I was on January 13th as I am today. I started the year AWESOME, and even lost a few lbs and had some progress. Then, you know what happened? LIFE!
Yup. Stress of owning a business. Anxiety of not feeling like I am good enough to do what I do. Home stress. Job stress. Even struggled with overwhelming sadness and feeling like I couldn’t tell a soul about it, because I am supposed to always be the happy, positive one. Well, since a perfect life probably doesn’t actually exist, I’ll be honest, I am NOT always happy. I do NOT always feel like leading a workout, going to my day job, or even getting out of bed for that fact! I do my best to pull myself up by my boot straps, put on a happy face and get on with it, but let’s be realistic, being “ON” up to 12 hours a day, 6 days a week, in and of itself, is hard sometimes. Add other life things and raging menopause hormones that you aren’t always sure what to do with, and it can be a struggle sometimes.
Now don’t get me wrong, I do it, because I KNOW once I start, I will feel better. The endorphins that come from exercise always help cheer me up!
Besides, I LOVE what I do!
But sometimes when we stress, we stop doing some things that we KNOW we should be doing. Like cutting alcohol down to a minimum, not eating sweets, and NOT medicating our emotions with FOOD!
Do you know what that means?
NO, not that it is 5 days til Halloween. Not that it is less than a month til Thanksgiving. AND NO….Definitely NOT that it is 2 months til Christmas.
It means that you have 66 days to work on your 2018 goals. OK, we will take off one day for Thanksgiving and 2 days for Christmas, and even 3 random days for Holiday parties. That leaves 60 DAYS to work on your goals!
