More about the Recovery Day

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

Okay, yes, I know what everyone including my trainer is saying about recovery and why it is important. I will be doing it. I will take an active recovery day on Saturday where I will go for a walk with the bad black dog. Let me explain my fear of this. I am scared I am going to take a day off and like it a little too much and then one day will turn into two days. Also, I just want to get the final 30 pounds off. I know I have all the time in the world to take off the weight, but why take forever? I would rather get it over with and then spend the rest of my life MAINTAINING it instead of just working on LOSING IT. This is not a diet, it is a life change. I can totally understand taking a day or two off once I am at my goal weight. I am still working toward a goal. Of COURSE I could NEVER keep up 3 hours a day for the rest of my life. I don't think I can. But I COULD keep up this for the next three months until I lose the 30 pounds. What I am doing right now, (which is working out every day), has worked since August. I am scared to change what is WORKING. Does that make sense? I am gaining muscle, I am getting stronger, I am losing my arm chewy, the scale is going down by leaps and bounds I am getting into smaller and smaller clothing. These are all GOOD things. Why would I want to change that. Yes, once I have LOST all the weight I want to lose, THEN I can work on total toning and building muscles and take days off. Am I out of my mind for thinking this way? Yes, I am still stressing over it :P

    Don'y worry about set backs. They will happen even when you are in maintenance mode.

    It really must be scary to change from something is working so well for you.
Having a day of rest one day a week so your body can recover is a great plan
Going for a long walk sounds like a good plan to keep you moving.
