Never gonna happen

Friday, March 29, 2013

Back in 2007 is when I first started getting serious about taking care of my body. I started out really easy at 167lbs with just 30 minutes of cardio at least 3 days a week. That was in June, and by the time I started back at school in the fall I had built up to doing a lot more. I went back and looked at my logs from that fall, when I was doing 3, sometimes FIVE! workouts a day! Not to mention walking all over campus. During November I was at the same weight I am now, but I was doing so much exercise! Look! Every monday I burned 1000 calories! And I was working out a solid 6 days a week.

I wasn't overdoing it, I was having a really good time with all of those workouts back then. But now, that kind of intensity is just not going to happen. And that makes me a little sad and also discouraged. As if the workouts I'm doing now aren't enough. I know I'm working really hard with the Insanity workouts, but when I see like 200-400 calories burned each day, it makes me wish for those 800-1000 calorie days. I loved seeing how much my body changed back then and how fit I was getting. And I guess I just long for those quick changes again. emoticon I know I'm being pretty ridiculous, but w/e, I'm allowed to have a moment emoticon .

I didn't realize how small that screen shot would show up. Here's a close up of one week:

Ok, not much better. It says: Monday: 1,192 calories burned Tuesday: 480 Wednesday: 456 Thursday: 684 Friday: 864 Saturday:432

    I have had a moment or two of the emoticon when I reviewed some of my stats from previous years. But my circumstances have changed and I tell myself I need to focus on what I am doing now and enjoy my current successes.

    Don't get discouraged about not seeing the big numbers burned; it sounds like your are still active and maintaining.
