“The Losing Battle”

The losing battle

Ok……here it goes…….I have been trying to lose weight and get fit for a few years now. If I’m being honest, my “trying” to lose weight has been a roller coaster ride that I ride for about a week get off and get back on a month later. I’m one of those people who work out one day and wake up the next morning and expect my rolls and cellulite to suddenly be gone. I know, I know that’s not how it works, but darn that work out took all my strength not just physically but mentally and I should see a flipping change! I don’t want to wait for weeks and weeks I want to see change ummmm…..like yesterday!!!

I had to recently face the facts that I am losing “the losing battle”. I haven’t seen any progress and my body just stays well….. the same. My way of thinking has to change. I have felt all kinds of emotions, frustration, defeat, sadness, disappointment, you name it I’ve felt it about losing weight and getting fit. I fluctuate with in the same 15 pound range and can never seem to push myself to get over that hump.

Well, I guess I finally got sick of always saying I was going to get back on track and pull it together. You know the drill……”this Monday….that’s it… I’m getting back on track” or “I can’t keep this up I have to change”. So I am stepping out of my comfort zone and blogging about my struggle. I’m sure there are many of you who can relate with the battle of losing weight. You have to keep winning battles before you can win the war. Each day is a new day and with each day we all face new battles and you know what, we will lose some of the battles but the key is to keep fighting so you can win the war. I want to win this time! I am sick of losing.

I have tried many different programs to help me lose weight and get fit. This time around I am going to commit to trying beach body along with shakeology. The thing is, I am also going to commit to being honest here on my blog about how I am doing and how I am struggling and I am sure I am going to struggle.

Listen, I love to eat and I don’t plan on living my life depriving myself of the things I love. What I do plan on doing is adjusting the amounts of those things I love and being more aware of how often I am indulging in those things.

I don’t want to be one of those “in your face healthy eating and work out people” and this is not a sales pitch for beach body and shakeology. I chose beach body because of the work outs. I am not a good self motivator. I need a video to follow along with or I know I will not work as hard or I won’t do anything at all. I was previously doing another shake which I did enjoy but since I am going to be doing the work outs with beach body I wanted to try the shakeology.

This is just my story and my journey. My blog is about my life being a housewife and part of my life is trying to win “the losing battle”. I think we all have struggles in life and we all want to succeed and this is one area where I want to succeed. I will not be filling my blog with daily posts on working out and losing weight but I will post an update on my battles once a week.

My goal is to lose 20 pounds…..there, now it’s out in the open and my mission has begun. My hope as a blogger is to relate to people and share my life with you. Thank you for reading my blog and following along with my journey.

I would love to hear about your battle and your struggles. Sometimes knowing your not alone helps to keep you going!
