I’ve been stuck at 205 for about the last month. It’s been up and down 3-4 pounds but I haven’t hit below 205lbs. I was feeling stuck. Last week I sent my trainer a text saying that I was done with this s&*t and ready to break through – he happily accepted and has been kicking my butt this past week. When I stepped on the scale this morning I saw this…
I think this block is totally mental and it’s – to be perfectly honest – pissing me off! I have no idea why – is it because it’s so close to 199 that it’s freaking me out for some reason? Is it because once I hit 199 I’m that much closer to my goal, thus making it something that I will have to maintain and that scares me on some level? It’s been on my mind and I can’t shake it! So until I figure out what that reason is I’m just making the choice to move forward and figure it out as I continue.
One thing Kevin and I have always talked about is taking a trip together (we never had a honeymoon) and we have always had Nashville on our list of places to go. Through the fates of the Internets I’ve made some awesome friends that just happen to live in Nashville! We’ve become close over the last couple months – Kat and I have gone shopping over instant message before It’s new age friendship at it’s finest I tell you!
So with all that being said, we’re planning a trip this summer to NASHVILLE! I’m SO excited and it’s given me the swift kick in the rear to lock down my eating and double down on my workouts. I made a handy little motivation chart as they’ve worked so well for me before!
I’ll be updating you on my status (of course!) over the next few weeks and I can’t wait to see how quickly I can cross off those boxes!
What works for you when setting a goal? How do you make things happen? Do you ever get stuck? What gets you unstuck?
