No Motivation=No Results

I said a while back that I would keep everyone posted on my weight loss goal.  I FAILED! Miserably.  I would lose 6 pounds, gain 5 back, lose 5, gain 6, and so on.  I am back where I started.

It doesn't help that I have zero motivation lately.  I don't know why, but I just can't seem to feel like exercising much outside of derby practice and riding my bike to work.  I have also been eating basically whatever is put in front of me without caring about the consequences.

I found some motivational quotes this week that will hopefully help boost my mind to do what my body needs:

''If you are on a diet to lose weight and feel like having a snack, eat an apple. If you aren't hungry enough to eat an apple, you aren't hungry enough for a snack.''
"Adequate sleep is absolutely essential to maintain a healthy body because that is when the body rebuilds itself.''
"The total amount of physical activity is more important for achieving health benefits than frequency, intensity, or duration."
"Research shows that weight training can improve your self-esteem."
"Plyometric exercises are high-intensity moves designed to increase muscle speed and power. Plyometrics often involve jumping."
"Enjoy your foods and appreciate each bite. Chew carefully and slowly and don't overeat."
"The low level of physical activity among people is a major contributor to the burden of chronic disease."
"The more lean muscle you have, the more calories you'll burn, even when you're staying perfectly still."
"The best physical activity is the one that is enjoyable enough to do regularly."
I will keep trying.  I will not give up.  I know I will fall but I will keep getting up and trying again.  One day, I WILL achieve my goal.
