Wednesday 22nd April – What to do when you hit a rough patch

So, I’m not on a positive pitch today. Usually I’d just descend into feeling completely sorry for myself, hiding away and most probably crying. BUT that never helps! I suppose I could say at least that’s an improvement from where I was previously…

I’ve been working on losing weight, getting fit and improving most aspects of my life over the last (almost) 2 years, and while I have made some real progress in a number of areas, there’s still such a long way to go in the ones I suppose I thought I’d sort first.

What I have learned is to not let setbacks put me off and get me down. Easier said than done, but I really am trying. For instance, getting ready for work this morning turned in to one of those ‘I’m too fat for all of my clothes’ tantrums… We’ve all had them, right ladies? And gents? So that mixed with a traumatising visit to the dentist and arriving at work to be surrounded by beautiful, young, well dressed girls just wasn’t the best combo today.

However, rather than beat myself up over my recent weight gain, I’m currently working on an improved training schedule so that it becomes ingrained in my weekly routine. In fact, I pledge here and now to aim for at least 3/4 training sessions per week. The more I hit this target, the easier it will turn into a habit, and a damn good one at that.

Although I’ve felt just a little bit sorry for myself today, and possibly even sulked a bit…., I know my overall reaction is so much better than even this time last year. To a lot of people that will sound ridiculous, but to me this is a definite big leap in the right direction.
