Time for a Change

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

I am still not losing any weight. I stepped on the scale this morning and at least I accepted the number in front of me and didn't jump off in frustration before my digital scale recorded it. My food intake has only been okay. It needs improving, but it hasn't been horrible. I am generally staying within my range, but the quality of what I have been eating is slipping. I think I have to finally admit that I am fitter than I was before. That I am going to have to try harder and workout longer if I want to change my body. I need to step up the intensity if I want to make any progress. I do Tabata on Wednesday night's and that is one of the few times that I really kick it up a notch. I generally go for a jog on the weekends. I tried going for a jog both days but I get so stiff that I end up hurting. I am working on my flexibility so maybe that will improve. Other than that all of my fitness minutes are pretty moderate. I am walking at lunch. I walk to work............ walk, walk, walk, walk, walk. I know that all that walking adds up, but I need to start getting my heart rate elevated during more of my workouts. I have all kinds of books and videos, so I should be able to find something.

Two weeks left in my Team Fit Challenge at work and you get points for improvements in strength, flexibility, etc., but what I really want improvement in is weight and fat percentage and so far those are not happening.

    I was in a similar rut, and I ended up having to do more for longer at a higher intensity. It will work, although even then I had to wait... oh, forever, to see the beginning of the results I want. I was doing lots of cardio, but I also needed the weights AND the walking. It takes a lot and for a long time. At least that's how it was for me. But then the victory is just that much sweeter, right? Hang in there!!!
