Failed Experiment

Saturday, January 22, 2011

I decided to stop tracking food for week three of my challenge, and I gained 3lbs., putting me higher than my start weight. I keep telling myself to just stick with it and the weight will start to come off. It was just to much to be sore and hungry all of the time. I dont think I would have stuck with the program if I had continued being unhappy about the whole thing. I have had the habit of tracking my food for quite some time now, and for me I felt that it was much more important to concentrate on the habit of working out.

Some things I did notice about eating a higher calorie diet while exercising is that my body recovered much quicker from my workouts, and I was not grumpy from being hungry all of the time. Now I just have to find the is always about finding the balance for me.. I am starting to measure and track my food again.

Week three of the 28day challenge is done and week four is starting today. My strength and endurance has definitely improved, and I am very happy about that. I have been thinking about what I want to next. I have the 30day shred (which I have never finished all the way through), but I find that it can get boring very quickly....I am thinking about getting Jillians other videos and trying the 30 day slim down challenge. If any of you have done it let me know what you think? Or if you know of any other good challenges let me know.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

    Oh this is a hardie, when nutrition is the huge number 80%- I had to learn to track everything.. It takes time but once I got most of the stuff punched in, it does get easier-then I can transfer whole meals..
    I dunno about Jullian, I look at stuff on the internet.. has alot of instructors whom put up stuff free or I take the basic workout and do it to my own music..
