I recently signed on to part of a group of bloggers that I admire http://fitnessblogworld.com/.
It was recommended that I join by a person who is a wonderful writer,funny as hell and supportive http://www.bikiniorbust.com . I haven’t been online or blogged much in the last few months. It’s been a crazy summer, a summer in which I intended to get myself completely organized, finish with the renovations happening in my house, be mother and wife of the year and of course lose more weight and get fitter.
I have to admit that out of all of my expectations for the summer, my hopes were highest for the weight loss part and therefore my devastation most apparent when I hadn’t succeeded in my goals. I’m not sure they were realistic to start with. I knew I would be continuing with a renovation we have happening, I still had my two wee ones at home, I would travel and be without my wonderful trainer and chiropractor. I was going to spend time with my mother in law(can you say stressful relationship), attend a reunion and friends wedding and spend a lot of family time. I was convinced I would succeed (and be perfect), but I must say not -mentally prepared to deal with the emotional stuff that would come up.
I allowed myself to fall into old patterns of having a few great days and then allow life to get in the way of my success, no one to blame but myself. I lost focus, felt lost, and allowed all my old insecurities to creep in. Somedays were great and i was really proud of myself, but then I would fall of course. I know for me this is not good- I struggle to lose even when I follow a program to the letter. So I think I had a bit of a ” F it ” attitude.
So our bloggers topic for this week was where do you see yourself in the future, 6 months or longterm, what are your goals, how will you get there, how do you get back on track? You get the idea. I was stumped, I couldn’t write about this, I felt like I had no direction, no goals, I realized that I had actually quit and not even realized it, I had stopped working towards my goals because I really didn’t know what they were anymore.
So time to refocus, get my ass in gear, and figure out what and why I want exactly!! I’m not normally a point form person, as you can tell , but maybe that’s what I need??!! To successfully complete goals I still need to figure out the why and how!!
