I find staying motivated with eating the hardest because i've always craved junk - I just love junk food! I try to think about what it is doing to my body. Apart from putting on weight and making me feel sick and yuck, my heart and other organs are having to work 10 x harder and that is no reward for all the great things my body does for me!
I can have great motivation and self control but once I have a craving I have to have something, I feel like I physcially can't stop myself! Its like my mind is so determined to binge that even if I hancuffed myself to a chair, my mind would jump out, go get some chips or chocolate throw it in my mouth and jump back inside my head
However, when I eat crap I do more exercise for longer and more intensly to pay for it. I really enjoy the challenge of exercise and have such a variety of things to do that it really is impossible for me to get bored. I will do something new each time I get bored. My variety includes walking, running, horse riding, swimming, fitness circuit, free weights at home, pilates, tae bo, leg magic, sit ups and push ups, running diving and catching while playing frisbee. I try and do 2-3different things a day. The thought of my body toning and slimming for this exercise make me really keen to keep going, besides, its fun
I'd love to do so many more things if I lived in an area that had classes and facilities.
Saying goodbye to calorie counting AND scales for a while.
Just enjoying the new and improved healthy me and embracing my new lifestyle!
