Staying in control...

Friday, April 19, 2013

Grateful the work-week is over this week. I am trying to stay in control of things on my end of the world, but am struggling with the pain of my shoulder injury because I don't want to take heavy medication to stop the pain.

That said, I am really working hard to follow the directions I was given based on the mini-training session I had on Tuesday. I did some Tabata style practice with my water jogging and alternated 20 seconds of fast running in place with 10 seconds of slow lopes in the jogging pool this evening. I did the 4-minute sequence and then ran/walked 4 laps around the pool before doing the next set. I did that 4 times over the course of 90 minutes and felt pretty good about it.

I looked at my fitbit at the end of the session to see my progress for the day and found that I had covered over 7280 steps in addition to the strength training I did after work. I just have to make sure I am eating enough to sustain the exercise I am doing so my body goes into starvation mode. I found out from the trainer (and from numerous "hints" I had been given from SP) that I wasn't feeding my body enough calories for it to relinquish the weight from the exercise I am doing. I am working on finding a healthy balance with that.

Tomorrow is another day to work to get it right!

    Sorry about the shoulder injury. I know how much that hurts!

    As for finding the right balance between exercise and eating enough, I'm having the same problem. I know many struggle with eating too much, but I've read some stuff that leads me to believe many many people aren't eating enough to lose weight! Weird!

    You're right; tomorrow is another day to get it right! Here's to that! =)
