Let me just say....

Thursday, June 09, 2011

So, today will be week 3 of Turbo Fire! I love the fact that I haven't missed one single day! Woohoo! Sundays are our rest days, so it's nice to have that little break, but no so much of a break that we don't want to get back into it!

The thing that I am finding very frustrating right now, is that I am not seeing rapid weight loss results. My friend and I have been doing this and being totally dedicated to it, but I think that my lack of sleep is really messing with my hormones! She has lost 4lbs..., I've lost 1? Really??? I would've thought that putting that kind of cardio in every single day (kicking and punching), and now since we are 3 weeks in, we are incorporating more strength training, and core/abs exercises, that I would be doing better than I am. I guess I need to do a little more during the day. I have totally been watching what I am eating, but then I wonder if I am not eating enough calories... I guess I need to get back to tracking. Maybe I can see where I am lacking/overindulging. Just utterly frustrated! I wish that I could get a little more sleep, as I think that it would help, but with it being summer, and my kiddos being home..., well... Not happening! I live for my Friday and Saturdays! I get 8 to 10 hours for each day. So I try to get back to somewhat normal. I am just trying to tell myself that they won't be home forever, so I am taking advantage of the time they are home with me.

On a positive note..., I am losing inches. Thank God something is transforming for the good on this body! lol

Hope you all have a super fantastic Thursday! The weekend is quickly approaching! Enjoy! :)

    I'm so sorry. I know it's frustrating but don't get down on yourself. You are losing inches and that is fantastic! I bet the lack of sleep is playing a big role. I don't know how you survive! Maybe try to get a few extra zzz's by taking a nap in the afternoon. Put a movie on for the kids and have quite time. ( I do that a lot!)

    Yes, you need to enjoy your kids because they do grow up so fast. My oldest I had to put in daycare when I went through my divorce and was a single mom....it really sucked! I cried all the way to work every day. So, I think it's great you can be with them! But you need to take care of yourself too! Wish I could be there...I would totally take your kids so you could sleep!

    Hang in there! emoticon

    Losing inches is sometimes better than losing pounds!

    That's right--go for the inches. Now that I'm in maintenance, I'm not trying to lose really, but I am losing inches ( OK fraction of inches). Don't be so hard on yourself. You're doing the right things, it will pay off--even on the scale eventually!

    As for the kiddos, that's right--enjoy them as they will be gone before you know it! emoticon

    I am learning in this journey it is not ALL about the number on the scale AND that the other victories are just as important to celebrate! emoticon
    On that note I track EVERYTHING! Otherwise I undereat.....

    I will be one of many, I'm sure, to say that muscle weighs more than fat and the fact you're losing inches means you're doing great. You're also speeding your metabolism by building muscle. So have patience and good luck.
