Another roadblock...

Let me preface this by noting that it seems like everytime I get super-excited on this journey I hit a wall and get super-frustrated...

For reasons unknown to me, I am in a slump. I am losing motivation and I'm losing it fast. Not sure if it is just a lull after going all-out last week or if it's the culmination of all of the stress I'm feeling. I dragged myself to the gym this morning and half-assed my workout -- I hate when I do that (not that it happens often...). My nutrition has not been up to par over the last couple of days and today I decided to nap over getting my extra cardio in. I'm afraid of failing and I feel like I'm teetering on a dangerous edge. Please don't read this as I am planning on quitting, because I know that is not an option. I'm just saying that I need to get my little slip-ups under control before they become big ones...

Hopefully, this too will pass... sooner rather than later would be preferable.

Hang in there girl! Not that I'm glad you've hit a roadblock, but I'm glad you are human and aren't perfect 100% of the time. It helps us others in our journey, if you can believe that. I wouldn't care about your journey if you met every goal without some strife.

Plus, without setbacks you wouldn't appreciate the successes.

Hey, you're human! Bravo to you for seeing you're struggling and acknowledging it... you might not get over this roadblock right away, but recognizing it for what it is and that you WANT to get past it is so important. You can do it!!

Laura, SNAP OUT OF IT. You are so strong and I know you will succeed. Size 12 is around the corner. You have lost a teenager already for heavens sake.
You have got everything it takes and you are right on track. I believe in you!! barb
