It's been a month - why am I not a super model yet!?

Thursday, August 04, 2011

So it's been a month of hydration, exercise, eating better (mostly) but I can't figure out why the world isn't dropping at my feet in awe of me.

I've been flooding my body with water - I think it's safe to say that I'm ultra-hydrated. I've been exercising - not fanatically, not even hardcore exertion. But compared to what I've been doing for the last 10/15 years -- it's a 400% increase in activity. I think it's safe to say that my prior habits made me somewhat veal-like -- soft, milk-fed, and zero muscle tone (probably more like negative muscle tone). I've also been eating 'better' than I have in the past. By no means am I 'perfect' but compared to how I've been, it's a huge improvement (I've been eating VEGETABLES for the love of god!!) Logical brain knows that it's not how I look, it's how I feel, slow and steady wins the race, it's not a 'diet' it's a 'lifestyle'...blah blah cliche cliche.....

But my Irrational brain can't figure out why the entire universe hasn't noticed any improvement. Shouldn't I be stopped in the hall at work -- "hey - you look awesome, are you working out...I notice your arm fat isn't swinging into the walls anymore"? Shouldn't the neighbors, the pharmacist, the hairdresser...shouldn't they ALL be wondering what's different? Why aren't my clothes falling off - don't they know that I'm supposed to be a super model now?!? Logical brain knows that this is ridiculous nonsense. The problem is, my Irrational brain is a much louder, more pissed off voice in my ear. Why has no one in my universe noticed any difference! Let's not forget -- it's only been a month and 5 lbs (which isn't much when you've got a LOT to lose). And the Irrational brain likes to remind me that regular 'diets' - I can lose 5 lbs in a weekend and it doesn't take an entire month for god's sake. But Logical brain knows I can also gain 5 lbs in a weekend (hell, probably just a Saturday).

I know it takes more than a month and, despite what I think, the entire world isn't analyzing every detail of my physique (they obviously don't know how awesome I must be). I guess it's TWO months when the magic occurs. NEXT month is when I'll wake up and be a supermodel!!! Yeah....I'm sure that's it.

    I THOROUGHLY enjoyed your post!!! I think we all feel the same way. I did P90X for 2 months....then we went on vacation for a week and when we came back summer was in full swing. One excuse after another...

    Anyway....during that 2 months the scale didn't move AT ALL!!! WTH!!! But the inches did.

    My bro actually noticed the supermodel in me at the 2 month mark and went to work telling people he had to start doing P90 because his sis was doing it and "she's hot!"

    Really?? Me?? Hot?? Holy crap!! He's always been the good-looking one of the family. And he married a supermodel.....little b****. =)

    She's put on a few pounds while I lost a few inches and maybe it's shallow of me, or really mean, but I loved the shift! That was a year ago and I've put those inches back on. Time to get them off again.
