"Don't be upset about the result you didn't get from the work you didn't do." This week has been eye opening. I write this blog with a sore body, shuffling around with pains and aches of hard workouts I completed this week. The squats, the Zumba class, the elliptical workouts for the past 4 days I have been giving my all in the gym and the week before I was doing the same thing before I got sick. However I have still managed to gain 6 lbs. I must admit I was shocked when I stepped on the scale and saw the number but in the next moment I knew exactly why that number was the way it was. My eating for last week was horrible and I think I actually convinced myself that the fact that I was working out would help in some way. It also made me realize that this needs to be all or nothing effort. What is the point of killing myself in the gym, pushing myself so hard if I'm going to eat badly and vice versa. I often find myself saying "I did really good with exercise but I have to work on my eating" week after week I say this but now I see just how important it really is.
