FMM: Bouncing Back
FMM: What do you do when trying to reclaim your healthy lifestyle after a few emotional, unhealthy weeks?
I know Kenlie is looking for ideas on how to get back on track after a difficult time. But for me this topic is coming at a particularly opportune time too – I’ve been struggling too! Not really with my workouts, I’ve been knocking those down pretty well. But my eating has been derailed, and my motivation to do anything about it waxes and wanes with the numbers on the scale! It is so frustrating to seem to be doing everything right, only to not see any change on the scale. I also know it is not healthy to obsess over a number – if I feel good, if my clothes fit, I should be OK, right? Problem is, my pants currently fit about 5 pounds too tight too! Sigh.
So, on that vein, I’m doing something I hate to do. Today is Halloween, and I’m allowing myself 1 more bad day. (That’s the part I hate. I know I should just commit to starting TODAY. But I also know myself. Why set myself up to fail?) Tomorrow, I’m getting back on track. I use My Fitness Pal to track my food and exercise. I’m going to create a new page here where I’m also going to track what I’m eating. Maybe I’ll stay on track better that way!
What other tools can I use to help myself get back on track?
