Help me keep my motivation before it's gone please!
Hi. Here's my story. I began 2 months ago (early June) to lose weight. It was for a trip I had planned for the end of July. My starting weight was 143. I began exercising everyday and eating healthy. I went to the gym every weekday morning at 5am for at least 45 minutes, sometimes 1 hour. I did cardio every morning. I would come home and do some calisthenics, eat breakfast (piece of fruit and/or healthy cereal with non fat milk, or a protein shake with some oatmeal, etc). I kept a diary of everything I ate during the day and stuck to an 1100 calorie a day diet, making sure I got all the necessary nutrients and kept my saturated fat intake below 9%. I cut out all alcohol for 5 weeks, and, I made sure I got at least 8 hours of sleep each night. In 2 months I lost 15 lbs. I just got back from my trip and I felt fantastic in a bathing suit! (Which I have not worn a suit in years).
So, what is my problem? My problem is that now I'm back home, with no real tangible goal to keep my motivation going to continue my weight loss (or at least maintain). Ideally I would like to be at 120 - 123 which is only about 5 - 8 more lbs. But, I have not been back to the gym since I returned from my vacation. For the most part I have continued to eat healthy but I already notice sneaking in a sweet snack every now and again.
I just want my motivation to kick back in before I lose it completely. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions?
