Working out is hard, and it usually SUCKS, and I don't usually WANT to do it.
Eating healthy is hard, it takes planning and prepping, and it means more dishes. All. The. Time.
I've lost 50 pounds, but I need you to understand something. IM NOT PERFECT. Did I work out every day? HECK NO. Did I eat on plan, proper portions and zero processed food? DEFINITELY NO.
There were WEEKS where I didn't work out. There were WEEKS that ate completely like crap...I'm talking dessert every night, drive thru for dinner here people. There were WEEKS where I actually gained weight back, sometimes even a couple weeks in a row.
But here is the thing. I didn't STAY off track. I made the DECISION to get going again. And the momentum from that outweighed the stagnant times. And THAT is how I lost 50 pounds. I challenged myself. I continued to step outside of my comfort zone and push past my fears of failure and my feelings of defeat and inadequacy and I KEPT GOING.
Is it always easy? NO. I'll never tell you that a health and fitness journey is "easy". There is a lot of mental and emotional things you have to work on. Every day.
But is it worth it? YES. 100% yes.
Are you feeling stuck? Are you feeling like you always start and stop and you can't figure out why? That's normal! Those feelings are part of this process. If you want to know how I work through those times, send me a PM. You don't even have to comment below because I know admitting this stuff publicly is scary.
