Yesterday - Elliptical 30 minutes - started at 10/1 decreased every 5 minutes and treadmill - 30 minutes increasing incline intervals
Weigh-in this morning gain .09 a pound!
I am so tired of this up down, up down it ALMOST makes me want to just say forget it. But I can't say that because I'll never get to where I'm aiming to go. So I continue on and keep making adjustments to my plan. YES ... I can't deny it...I'm disappointed as I'm sure all of us will/have been. Especially after you've worked so hard exercising, tried to keep to your eating plans, drank your water and been 90% on target. I expected some change. Well I got change just in the wrong direction. I was going to take my measurements to see if anything had shifted but I was running late.
Yes I've gone down a size in clothes, I can almost fit some things that wouldn't even come to my waist, even the skirt I have on today is lose in the waist. But with the hard work I expect to see the scale move. Why is this always our primary focus? If it doesn't move in the right direction we feel I'm not doing something right!!! I know what I do daily, I know this body of mines is confused as heck right now, but I know also that quitting is not an option. I think I've made a lot of changes in my diet in a short period of time and perhaps my body is not friendly to the variations. So I'm going back to what was working and sticking with it for the rest of this month and next month. I am going to track more diligently and I was about to send my bodybugg back but I think I'll keep it and start using it. I know, I know I've said it before but it's serious now.
I will continue to mix things up with my workout and get more serious about my weight training. I won't use that thought of muscle weighs more to compensate for the gain. With muscle and toning my body should reshape and burn more calories so...I'm going in...
SparkFriends if you're reading this...I need one of those tough trainer talks... an in your face ... yelling... pissed off at me talks... You know the kind Jillian Michaels gives in the gym!!! Of course if it was actually happening ain't no telling what would happen to her
