The scale just isn’t budging. It goes down a little and then the next day it’s right back up. I’m used to a steadily declining number and that is just not happening this week.
And this is why I’m frustrated with myself.
I haven’t gone over my daily calorie budget, but many of the foods I’ve chosen to eat have been of the less healthy variety. I had only 1 salad this week. I’ve been rather carb-heavy in my choices.
And I already know that in order for my weight to drop that a lot of my calories need to come from veggies and not carbs. So why am I making these poor choices? Why am I sabotaging myself?
Part of it is laziness. Pure and simple. It takes a moderate effort to keep the fridge stocked with fresh produce, regardless of how many ready to cook items I have in the freezer. And I have failed at this.
It’s not a lack of motivation, because I *am* motivated this time around. I think I’ve grown complacent. This process is one where you must continuously work harder and make good choices, and instead I’ve fallen into a rut where I do the same or just under the same amount of work hoping that the results continue to come in.
Well this week I’ve proven that the results reflect the work you put in, and what I’ve been doing just isn’t enough.
Complacency and laziness are my enemies. And I will overcome them. Right now – this moment – is a fresh start for me. I haven’t lost 12 pounds just to give up and end up right where I started.
