So I just spent a week in the hospital for mental health reasons. Shortly before that I took an 11 day trip to visit my partner who loves halfway across the country. (No, the two are not related, my trip was wonderful and my partner is unbelievably supportive.)
So anyway, I had been on a roll before that, I lost almost 20 lbs. But now I've lost all my momentum.
I'm tempted to just take the rest of the month off, stay at this weight for a bit, pick back up at the new year, etc. But I know in January I'll have excuses too.
Besides, exercise is good for depression. So even if I take the weight-loss pressure out of the equation for a while, I still need to get back on my horse and start exercising regularly again. Boy, am I dragging my feet though.
Any encouragement, motivation, helpful tips and tricks, etc would be greatly appreciated.
Work out for the feeling you get after a good workout focus on that and the goals will start being met on their own :) track the progress using the mirror and the only workout you'd regret is the one you miss so get moving and put the time at hand to good use :) happy working out :D
