feeling stuck

I keep starting and stopping with working out and healthy eating.
I can't seem to keep myself motivated long enough to see any results, but I'm miserable where I am with weight/health. 

I really wish I could jumpstart and see some results that would make me feel like what I was doing was working.

We moved across the country about 7 months ago, I got depressed, didn't get out of bed much, didn't leave the house at all, didn't work out, ate like crap, gained about 25lbs...etc...

I've joined a gym and know what to eat in theory, but in practice I just can't seem to get it right. 

I don't know if I'm looking for advice or just a place to vent.  So I'm sorry this is so long.

Does anyone have any good workout routines that include cardio & weights?  Anyone have any good super simple, grab-and-go type vegetarian meal options?  3 out of my 5 work days I need to be able to eat a lunch that doesn't require reheating and is super portable (on these days I'm eating in the car between appointments). 

If anyone has a good meal plan / work out plan they could send me, I'd appreciate it!  sweet.spikette at gmail dot com


Re: feeling stuck

  • One workout video I've been doing is the 30 Day Shred.  It has strength and cardio and it's 20 minutes long. 

    I don't have any food suggestions as I'm not a vegetarian.

    Set some small goals and reward yourself when you reach them; i.e., if you workout for 30 mins a day 4x times a week.  I know it's frustrating when you don't see results right away, but it takes time to make healthy changes.
