Weight Loss Tracker

(am I allowed to type that? Too late.)

I haven't worked out in 9 days.

This morning I ate 3.5 breakfast pastries.

I have only food journaled 4 times in the past 12 days.

I have not weighed myself in 13 days.


After a victory like my 5k at the Shamrock Run, you would think the "winning" would continue. Instead, I feel directionless, bored, tired and a little befuddled. What exactly am I working towards? What's my directive at this point?

Having the run to train for inspired me, and kept on a fantastic track for 6 weeks(except for when I was a cranky-pants). Now it just feels like a long stretch until my ideal weight in December. Which I won't get to if I continue my current habits.

Blast and wretch!

Here's the plan stan. I'm going to bed. Because I work in 7 hours and I need my sleep. Tomorrow I am going to take a good hour to look through some work out plans, possible fitness goals, and runs in the area. I am also weighing myself.

My body is not as strong as it was 8 days ago. Funny how that happens so fast.



  1. I know exactly how you feel. I usually go on a really lazy, no exercise binge whenever I complete a goal. I guess that I just run out of motivation. After the last 5K I decided that I just had to keep pushing myself. I can almost run 10K now, and really want to complete a half marathon this summer. It might not be do-able, but I totally need to have a goal to keep me motivated, otherwise I fizzle out. I'm sure that there are 8, 10, or 15k runs in P-town too. Good luck! :)

  2. Sign up for another run!

    I'm the exact same way - I need short term goals to work towards (whether its a wedding I'm in or a race I'm doing) so I know exactly how you feel.

    Sign up for something today, then get your butt workin'!!! You know yourself it will only take a day or two of good eating and working out to get back into the "mode" :)

    You can do it girl!

  3. I'm sorry you are feeling unmotivated - that is the worst! But don't beat yourself up too much. You have done such a good job so far and you KNOW you can get back on track. You can't always be perfect! :) (I am worried that after the wedding I will go back to my old ways and won't be able to maintain the lifestyle I will have created over the past 4 months.) I agree with Previously Plump - sign up for another run. Or find a dance class at your local community college - they are pretty cheap in my experience.
    I am sending you good motivation vibes so listen to the Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations," get out on the sidewalk and bust it out!
    Love you girl! I believe in you!

  4. I just signed up for a half marathon in August because one, i would love to say I'm a runner, and two, to get my ARSE of the damn couch! SIGN UP for another one!
    Where do you live???

  5. It's crazy how endurance drops off so fast. All we can do is keep looking around and not behind us.

  6. SET A NEW GOAL!!! You know you want to!
