My blog entry title is inspired by my Jenny Craig Counselor. He's always saying, "Keep that motivation goin' Christine!" Despite all of the anxiety that I had about my weigh-in today, I actually lost over a pound and in total have lost almost 10 lbs on the plan so far within a month.
Although this week didn't bring any super significant weight loss, it definitely helped to boost my confidence even just a little bit. And although I felt like I had a bad week (cramming for exams and cheating during late night study sessions), I was still able to lose a little weight.
I just have to keep reminding myself of how good I feel when I am active. It isn't just good for the obvious reason of getting in shape but it also helps with your mental health. I find that going for a walk/run really helps relieve stress. I used to be extremely athletic in high school, then I went to college and stopped being as active, and I really think a lot of my depression stems from that inactivity. Another motivational factor to get outside and get movin' is the weather has been beautiful!
I think once exams are over and I can really devote my full attention to the plan I will be on the right track. It's all about believing in yourself and refusing to let the negative thoughts occupy your brain!
