I am exhausted...Just plain ole tired...I haven't been sleeping well..Its not the actual sleeping part. I'm exhausted and fall straight asleep when I go to bed, but my late evenings are not helping. I used to fal asleep on the couch at 8 and stumble into bed around 10. I'd wake up feeling nice and refreshed. Now, I'm awake til 10 or 11 for some reason and just waking up tired and grumpy.
This has been a stressful week workout wise. I was consistently doing Zumba 2 days a week for exercise and I totally vamped it up in my opinion.
Saturday...(Hopefully a run, if not, a strength training video)
I've noticed that my calorie burn from Zumba has decreased from close to 900 to barely 700. I'm wondering if it is because I increased my workout so much (for me) and I'm tired. I've noticed I get tired half way through Zumba which is new for me, and certain muscles ache. I'm hoping that as my body gets used to the more exercise, the calorie burn will go back up... Here is to hoping....
I have to admit, I'm still a little bummed that my weight hasn't gone back down. I know that it will take time, but it is seriously depressing. A week ago, my scale read 209.8....It has been stuck on 212.4 this whole week. I know I should be thankful that it hasn't really went up past that, but my god, I just want that sucker to go down already...
