End Of Week 2

This week has been a really hard week on my body. I feel like its wanting me to stop and its trying to tell me I can't do this. But in the back of my head I can hear everyone saying, I knew he couldn't do this... and that right now is all that is keeping me going.

I know I should be proud of my accomplishments, and the goals that I've reached so far, but for some reason I just can't get excited about it. I've lost 10 lbs! Day after day I step back on that scale, and nothing has changed. But in my head I feel like I am gaining all the weight back. I don't know why this is happening to me. I am just waiting for the day where this starts to get easier. but for right not I can't even imagine how much longer that is going to take.

I wish i felt the same way I felt at the end of week one, ready and excited about the next weeks workout. But I just cant get myself psyched about it. I feel like I am running into an invisible wall built of all of my other failures and attempts at losing weight. It's depressing.

I guess I need some motivation, and I can't seem to find it. Hopefully after this weekend, I can get my head in the right place and focus on the goal ahead of me.

I think you need to set smaller rewards for yourself. Right now you've got too much time in between where you are and your goal.

I like to buy myself things if I hit a big mark. Doesn't have to be huge...perhaps you get to download some new workout music, or get a cool new water bottle. Just make sure the rewards are work-out oriented.

Keep it up!

Thanks Kenny! I have a feeling the next 10 is going to come off A LOT slower than the first 10!

hi, greg!
i got the link to this on my fb feed, and i have to say, i'm really, really proud of you for doing this! it's daunting to even think about running a marathon, but you're doing not only that, but you're also trying to eat better and be healthier in general, and that's a huge deal. good for you for making these changes (even when it sucks and you're sore and really just want a cheeseburger :) )
keep it up, and know that i'm reading this and encouraging you every step of the way.
