It will get better KBella! I hated doing the whole gym thing for a really long time, all those gym buffs were intimidating to me, and I am a Marine! If you have a pal or someone that cna show you how to do stuff to incorporate into your work out program, I am sure things will start turning around for you. If you ever need something, feel free to let me know!
I did track today, and I will be tracking my food today as well, but only because I have a very rare and precious few days off from work. Unusual to have 2 together this time of year. Ordinarily I'm just too time crunched to track. I figure it's more important to actually DO the workouts and eat well. Getting the time to actually track...well that's just gravy.
I started strength training about four months ago with a trainer. I have learned a lot about how my body works and I have learned to enjoy the feeling of my muscles moving as I work them. Now the diet! That is the challenge.
Suck it up Paulie. (A family joke that keeps us going
SM informed of this group after my public confession of "hating" strength training. I am looking forward to incorporating exercises and reading your valuable input.
I am about 60lbs overweight (Freshman 40-50, then some). I like cardio, but it is not and has not produced desirable results. I am young (25) but even at my most "saintly" times of proper diet and exercise it has been very hard to lose weight. I will blame a slow metabolism and of course my lack of consistency! My longest streak was a year of best practices and losing a mere 10 lbs, gained 20 back :-/. I took a long break, maybe 1.5 years. I have been exercising now, "on and off" now for about 4 months (my longest break being 3 weeks) and are ready to get serious.
Thank you for reading my rant. I wanted to be honest with myself and honest to the group about my good intentions on joining the group!
