I currently go to the gym for 1hr a day mon-fri, I have sat and sun as my rest days. During my workout I do both cardio and strength training (ie weights etc..) although I do vary the intensity and routine to keep it interesting. The first week I lost 3lbs, this week just half a pound.. Monday to Friday I am burning up to 400-500 calories daily.
A friend told me to carry on for up to 6 weeks before taking much notice of the scale, she said her trainer had told her by then her body would have become used to the new exercise/diet and the weight would melt off.. which it in fact did for her.
Does anyone else agree with this advice?
I don't track my calories exactly although I am very conscious of what I eat, I have tracked in the past and after a while I find it tedious and annoying and I stop.. but now I'm thinking I should try for the next week and see how much of a difference it makes? Maybe I'm not eating enough for the calories I'm burning??
I don't know.. I'm just feeling frustrated so if anyone could give me any advice I would be very grateful!
Thanks in advance.
