So...as the title of the blog states I have been off the wagon for the past 2 weeks. As you all know I have lost over 2 stones so far. I was rather strict on myself. I was making myself obsessed with syns. All I wanted to see was the result on those scales however I was only getting 1 lb here and 2 lbs there. I know a loss is a loss but I found it disheartening with all the hard work I was putting it. So I decided to have a day off and it turned into 2 weeks.
However I need to remember it’s not a diet I'm on - I'm in the middle of a lifestyle change. So I went to class and faced the music, a 5 lbs gain which is not that bad. I was expecting at least 7lbs. I’m going back to basics, writing everything down, no cheat days, no going over my syns allowance.
Last month I set myself 5 Non Scale Goals which were:
- Fit into the dress I wore for my 30th Birthday Party
- Drink 7 glasses of water a day
- Try a new recipe every week
- Use my food diary daily
- Do 30 minutes of exercise 3 times a week
I was pleased as punch to fit back into my dress I just need somewhere glam to wear it. I did however fail with the other four. I have set myself my goals for the month of May:
- Lose 10 lbs
- Get my 2.5 Stone Award
- Achieve Bronze Body Magic
- Eat more speed foods
- Stay on plan and keep my head in the game
So I’m back on the wagon. What do you do to keep yourself motivated whilst on a diet?
