MY Biggest Challenge

There's a lot of talk on here about what your biggest challenge will be. Sweets seem to top the list! (I have a terrible sweet tooth.) Finding the time to do a bit of a workout is tough. (Work all day, chase kids all night, pass out. That's my day.) Not snacking after 8:30 is hard!!

But really, all of these weaknesses pale in comparison to my biggest challenge: Myself.

I am so easily discouraged. I have a hard time finding the motivation to keep going when I'm not seeing results right away. I get overwhelmed at the smallest roadblock. I see other people being awesome and I think to myself, "why can't I just get it together??" When I step on the scale and see I've gained another pound, my entire day is ruined.

I'm so glad to be a part of this fitness challenge so I can have the support I need to get back on the right track physically. Mostly I'm hoping that at the end of this 8 weeks I'll have more control over not only my health, but my mind as well.

  1. I'm right there with you, Crystalyn. Today was a pretty rough day. I'm tired of being a single mom of 6 and I'm only half-way through the week. :) And a rough day usually means, ironically enough, that I don't take care of myself -- or maybe it's that I do try to take care of myself but through all the wrong ways (i.e., food).

    Even as I am typing this, I had to stop to unplug a toilet for the 6th time in the last 3 days. Oh, the joys!

    I, too, am grateful for the support this challenge brings. I didn't earn very many credits today, but I survived and will live to try another day.
