Where does my TIME go?

Thursday, September 09, 2010

So tonight, I was supposed to have worship practice, which was going to be my oh-so-convenient excuse for not going to the gym, even though I've only gone once this week so far. In my defense, I was in the car 8 hours on Monday, and I did do some heavy-duty kickboxing last night. Nevertheless, in order to get my three 1/2 hour strength training sessions in this week, I gotta go tonight. Cry. My body is still sore, for crying out loud! Mercy!

And now I'm home I'm sitting here thinking about how this is going to suck up all my time tonight. I'll go to the gym, come home, cook dinner, pay bills and it'll be time to plop back into bed for tomorrow's repeat. Booooo, says I. Joining the gym was part of the process of simplifying life, to be sure, but now I just feel like a workout hermit!

And sadly, one who is not losing weight! Yesterday, I weighed in at my fitness group as 174.


I weighed 175 when I started this time! and I weighed 171 on my bathroom scale this morning, but COME ON. I've been working out harder than I've ever worked out in my life - not a lie - and I am just not seeing the weight or the inches come off this time around. Frustrating to the max!

Oh well, I guess if I just sit here making up excuses, I'm never going to actually go, huh?

Better hop to.

    Girl - my weight can fluctuate up to 5lbs so I stick with my once a week weight.
    At least you are maintaining so find some joy in that - you've come this far and you can definitely push through:)

    Wow- I know EXACTLY what you mean. I have been eating soooo healthy and working out EVRYDAY, and I gained a pound! WHat is going on?!?!?!?
    Very frustrating to say the least. Why am I doing this to myself? I should enjoy a dinner with my family or friends and nto be afraid to go anywhere so I wont eat. I stopped drinking pop and all yummy food. Working out is tough. I would like a day to sleep in and not drag myself to get up at 5 am.
    I wish I had more advice for you, but Im struggling too and wish I had some answers too.

    I understand the frustration! Just remember, it's also for you to be healthy. Once you are done you will feel good. I always try to remember that. The only reason I sometimes avoid the gym is if I didn't get enough sleep the night before, then I don't push myself.

    It sounds like one day you're just going to step on the scale and like 4 lbs will be missing. lol. Remember also, we women have very fluctuating weights throughout the month. Mine varies by 3 lbs constantly.
