In case you missed the big announcement last night…we’re hosting another DietBet starting April 30!!!! Sign up here!
Today we’re continuing our Encouraging Words series talking CONSISTENCY. Why is it so hard to do the right, healthy things on a regular basis?? Why can we do good for a little while and then just go back to the old habits? Talk to us…

Training for a marathon but can’t keep my food intake in check! Can’t keep up reasonable portions for more than a day. #mamalovestoeat
I’ve had the hardest time with this. Two years ago I lost almost 60lbs. I was doing great for the longest time. Then about a year later I don’t know what happened…I just started to crave all the foods that I had been able to avoid for so long. I became too busy to go to the gym regularly. I just wanted to be lazy. It was defiantely a choice I made. I am trying to get back on the wagon but I am finding it more difficult than it has ever been. I hope hopeful that I will be able to be strong and beat this. I have gained 40lbs back in less than a year and I need to fix that. Thanks for being so motivating.
You can do it Randi! One step at a time. Make the choice today…if you mess up get right back on. It’s so easy to say, “I messed up today already so I’ll just eat bad the rest of the day.” You don’t have to do that! You can choose to get right back to it.
I still get a crazy sweet tooth. Last week I became obsessed with apple pie. I had it 3 days in a row. I know us girls like to blame things on our monthly cycles…. but I suspect it has something to do with it.
i’m so excited about the second dietbet! I didn’t win the first one but it was so motivating and I did manage to lose weight so I was still happy! thank you so much Sisters Curlee for hosting another one!!!!
You are welcome!! You’ve got it this time!! 😉
This is what I struggle with the MOST! And then I “feel all bad about myself” (to quote Lonestar State of Mind) because I keep regressing. :/
“Perfection” state of mind. If I can’t go workout for a full hour, I feel like it’s not worth it. If I can’t perfectly prep every meal and snack for the following day, I feel like a failure. I tend to be an “All or nothing” type of person with this. If I am not able to do it perfectly, I end up doing it HORRIBLY. UGH. But when I’m good…. I AM GOOOOOOOD. UGH.
That is exactly what I do Summer!!! Even though, logically, I know that doesn’t make sense… I still keep with the “all or nothing” mindset. Couch or spin bike. No in between.
For me, it’s hard to be consistent because if I’m short on time or feel overwhelmed the first thing to go seems to be exercise and eating healthy. I need to be A LOT more consistent when the going gets tough!
