Let's Pump Some Iron

Monday, November 26, 2012

Ok, well the truth is I am just sick and tired of being sick and tired all the time. My youngest child has autism and is very very busy. I need the energy to keep up with him. So we joined a gym and I have been taking Body Pump classes. I love Body Pump! But, it makes me realize that I have had a lifetime of sitting on the couch watching tv. I want to feel good. I want to feel happy. I want to keep up with my child without feeling overwhelmed. So far, no weight loss. I found Jamie Eason's eating plan yesterday and I am on day 2 of eating every minute of the day. Yesterday, I had 155 grams of protein. I know I am building muscle but it doesn't make you feel very good to put on clothes and feel bloated or like you are gaining weight. Going to work through it and stay on the plan. Health and I come.

    Thank you DrewBimon! I was wondering why I ran to the potty so much yesterday. I do feel less bloated today. Thanks for the support all.

    The initial bloating feeling is water weight from the shock you gave your body of pushing it. You will know when it is starting to going away when you start urinating more than usual. I'm at the same stage right now day 2 to be exact. I'm super sore from day 1 and will probably be sore from day 2 tomorrow. Pressing on!

    YAY! You can do this. That initial bloat feeling will pass. The food takes a little adjusting. It's a beautiful thing to really be able to eat a volume of healthy foods:) The strength will come to, along with the lovely delayed onset muscle soreness:) It is surprising how much that strength will carry over into other activities. I remember the first time I did a day of yard work, or did incline work on the treadmill, after having done LiveFit for a bit. I felt powerful and didn't have that "I can't move or get through this" the next day:)

Go get 'em Sandy!!!
