As of lately I have been trying to change my lifestyle. I am making a conscious effort to eat a lot better, and cut down my portions. I am also going to the gym at least four times a week, with a usual fun outdoorsy work-out on the weekends. I have been doing this for about three weeks, when something happened last week.
I hit a wall.
If anyone out there is trying to get in shape, you know it is a lot easier said then done. It is a battle, and sometimes you can't see how you are ever going to win. I wasn't seeing any changes, and I didn't feel any better about myself. What was the point of working out and eating healthy, it isn't showing?
It has never been about a number on a scale for me. It has been about looking in the mirror, and feeling confident in what it shows me, which I haven't had yet...
I wanted to give up. I had lost my will to keep at it, and I really didn't see a finish line in my future. I had a good cry about it with Nick, who told me to keep fighting. I know that it doesn't happen over night, and maybe I am a bit impatient, but I want this to work.
I have decide to keep at it! To push myself even harder. To eat even healthier. I know these walls are part of the challenger, and they are really tough to get over. But, I don't want to be a quitter...I want to succeed. If you guys have any tips or tools you have used in your journey to get healthy I would LOVE to hear them.
Have you guys hit any walls lately? How have you overcome them?
