I am in a space where I am trying to get my momentum back. I have been a little under the weather for the last week and a half and my treadmill is acting a little crazy. These are not excuses, I just have to get back in my zone.

I have come too far to go backwards. I am feeling a lot better, so now I am getting back on track. If you don't keep it in perspective, you can easily self-sabotage yourself. My food intake has been okay, just the exercise part of it, I was not doing so well. It was hard for me to think about stepping on that treadmill when my stomach ached. I don't think I could of handled it. Then, I thought to myself, "Tori, it has just been a week and it is not like you did not exercise at all." And of course for me, when I am not exercising on the regular (seven days a week), I feel like I am back at square one. I even dreamed that I had gained some of my weight back when in fact I had lost two pounds. My mind is definitely playing tricks on me.

This is such an interesting journey, and it will probably be one of the most interesting journeys that I will ever be on. That is because this journey is solely about me, learning more about myself as I lose this weight, knowing what keeps me motivated, trying to figure out this new person as I shed these layers, and to remember that my momentum can't always be full steam ahead. Sometimes it is okay to slow your momentum down and take a deep breath.


As a reminder, always consult your doctor for medical advice and treatment before starting any program.
