Unhappy

Lately, I have not been the best with eating. In fact, for weeks now I just haven’t cared as much. I mean, I haven’t been eating like total garbage. I eat a pretty healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s just what’s been had in between those meals that hasn’t been great. And it seems months of being lax has caught up to me. I’m just not happy with myself now.

I know I did this to myself. It’s my own fault considering I’m the one who decides what goes into my body. I’ve definitely eaten too many cookies, too much ice cream…too many sweets in general. Each week I try to eat better, but my sweet tooth has just gotten the best of me. I can’t control it. Has this happened to anyone else?

Anyway, this weekend I went out with friends and we took a bunch of pictures, and I just was not happy at all with how I looked. Once I saw the pictures, I felt self conscious about how I looked, and the next day I thought, “I really need to make a change.” Those pictures just made me feel…gross, for a lack of a better word.

I know that if someone, such as a client, was telling me this, I would tell them not to be so hard on themselves. I mean, how many times have we seen this quote?

But at the same time, I just know I need to make a change. This is probably the heaviest I have been…and it’s definitely not muscle. My workouts have been great. I mean, I exercise pretty much every day. But you know that saying about how you can’t out exercise a bad diet? Yeah, it’s true.

This weekend I ordered a nutrition plan to get back on track. I will let you guys know which one it is and my thoughts once I get it. I want to do a full review of it myself before I post about it.

How can I be so motivated workout-wise, but just not at all nutrition-wise? Why is eating clean so hard? Especially after you’ve fallen off the wagon. I’d like to lose 10 lbs, since that is about what I have gained. But ideally, I just want to feel comfortable with myself again! I just wanted to get this off my chest and see what your thoughts are. Any tips would certainly be appreciated.

Have you gone through something similar before?

How do you bounce back after falling off, whether it’s with exercise or nutrition?
