Well, here I am again after a long absence. My teenage daughter is my motivation. She has a sign pasted to her loft bed frame. "The definition of insanity: always doing the same thing and expecting a different outcome."
So, after participating in a triathlon this past November and having a time within a few 100ths of second as the previous year, I have decided that change is the only way I can improve.
I have changed my diet to be 50-60% Protein 20-25% carbs and 15-20% fat. This is a very difficult ratio to achieve. With my activity level, it requires a minimum of 200 g of protein. I am finding this very hard accomplish. My carbs mostly come from fruit and vegetable and still remains higher than my goal. Regardless, it's the diligent effort that is so far the payoff.
I see a change! 3 lbs so far. It's not a lot, but it is change.
Additionally, I have changed up my training and embarked on a free 6 week program offered on FB from Spinervals. I am sticking to it as best as possible and that too is a change for the better.
After having been tested to see if I have pcos or a thyroid issue, the determination is that I am extremely healthy. The only conclusion is that it is time for real change.
Much peace to you all in your journey. Don't let insanity creep in! If it isn't working for you make a change and try again. You will succeed because you desire to.
