So, I show a 5 pound loss, but I never tracked my first 3-pound loss. I'm not sure when I last stepped on the scale, but I know for sure I've lost 2 pounds within the last two weeks. I'll take it!
I'm doing well with getting cardio in at least 3 days a week (C25K again, it's a non-negotiable) and sometimes get it in on the other days off. I'm struggling adding strength training into my plan. Well, let's call it what it is--I don't want to do it! I know doing ST will make me sore, and it's harder to motivate myself to do cardio when I'm sore. Not to mention the fact that slinging around a 20+ pound baby when you have noodle arms does not sound good to me. But...I think I'm going to do a video tomorrow and do my best. Building lean muscles will help burn off fat.
Do you enjoy strength training? I seem to not know what to do and sometimes avoid it because I'd rather do cardio. Have you found something that you really enjoy that makes ST seem exciting? Please share!
