As I posted above, after 6 months of bludging, I got a personal trainer to pull me out of my slump. I has worked wonders. I don't mind paying the money now as it has been well worth it. Not only am I doing 2 sessions with my trainer, but I now do 3 or 4 by myself. Plus she "tests" me along the way so we know if I'm improving my runing time, weight I can lift etc.
If I didnt start seeing a trainer, I don't know what I would be doing now. Even if I have a slip of the diet, I know I can train a bit harder to counteract this. The last month has been perfect. But...in the last few days the bad cravings are back
. I was watching Biggest Loser and an ad came on for the new Mint Tim Tams. After an hour battle in my mind, I won!
Another day of cravings at work yesterday with hot cross buns on offer and a king size snickers calling me from the vending machine. But I won again! All because I don't want to let myself and my trainer down after all this hard work.
My advice to get out of a slump and get that fire back is to do something that makes you accountable, either get a friend involved, pay for personal training sessions, join a club where you weigh in once a week and have support.
