Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!


Friday, February 01, 2013

I have been very enthusiastic at the gym lately. Well, I should say that I have a trainer who is very enthusiastic. I am super sore! I'm kindof proud to be super sore, but, at the same time, I'm super sore. I'm having trouble finding a balance between working out enough to lose weight and not working out to the point of it not even being productive or even causing injury.

I don't know what is the best amount of exercise! I have read so much conflicting information. One thing for sure is that when I only work out for thirty minutes three times a week, I don't lose. Even when I work out thirty minutes 5 times a week, I might not lose. I have therefore pushed and pushed myself so that now I am working out 7 hours a week and I think that is working better for me. But maybe not more? I was going to do more this week, but ouch!

It's a dilemma... another half inch off the waist, though...

    Great to hear!! Gotta love/hate muscle soreness. It's like an invisible badge of honor. It reminds you of how hard you worked and the dedication you put in.
You'll know when you've gone too far. It's scary to think you might injure yourself but as long as you are listening to yourself everyday, at each workout, you'll know when to stop, or when you need some extra sleep.
I have to do more than 30 minutes to. I also need more than 4 days a week. I just have to have that consistent metabolism boosting workout. It also helps me if I keep my carbs in check. Pick the right ones, and eat in moderation. That is what works for me right now. I'm sure that will change. Do what works for you.

Keep up the good work! emoticon
