Update

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

So, here is a quick update.

Weigh in this morning was not good. Last week it was up, but it was TOM. This week up again.... my eating wasn't great but wasn't horrible either. My workouts have been fantastic and consistent. Maybe the gain would have been worse if it wasn't for the workouts. Who knows. Anyway, I'm not really caring because it's just a number. Eventually it will go down if I keep up my awesome workouts and eating good.

I'm loving the gym membership. Monday to Friday I have never missed a day (other than Thanksgiving Monday). Now I'm going to start going to a class on Saturdays and Sundays too! It's so much fun I love it. I'm excited to get up in the morning to go. I always thought that people were crazy to get up so early just to workout. I HATE mornings. This morning I woke up early, left for the gym before the sun was up, and had no issue. Tomorrow I'm going to go thirty minutes sooner!

Here is what my gym schedule is like (all are at least 60 minutes):

Monday: Strength training with cardio mixed in
Tuesday: Body Sculpt class
Wednesday: Strength training with cardio mixed in (once I have Wednesday's off again I might do Zumba)
Thursday: Zumba
Friday: Strength training with cardio mixed in
Saturday: Step Class
Sunday: Cardio mix class (or maybe rest)

Because of my current work schedule (which changes Friday) I have to miss Zumba tomorrow. I will do either cardio machines or aquafit in the morning.

    Your workouts are fantastic! Are you still doing The No S Diet? It is really working for me.

    Michele, I'm loving your enthusiasm too! It's great to hear your positive posts on the thread! I love that you're enjoying your new gym but be very careful of burnout, it happens all to often. If you are not used to regular exercise I would do 3 classes a week to start, be sure not to be ST the same body parts two days in a row.

    Food...I see where you need to eat more for your breakfast and make sure you eat within an hour of waking, remember your body has been fasting all night and needs to refuel. I love Rhonda's suggestions for good healthy meals and snacks! Get that protein in at every meal and snack. I usually have an apple with either peanut or almond butter, yum!

    Good luck and don't give up hope, it will all come together soon!

    Hey girl!! LOVE LOVE LOVE your enthusiasm!!! One thing I will say is watch out for burn out if you are not giving yourself a rest day. Don't think of it as a day off but rather a day to prepare for the next few days of intense workouts!! Your body needs it to to fully work itself at its capacity!!

    Also, I glanced at your nutrition tracker...Can I make a suggestion? I would make sure you are eating a clean protein at every meal. Breakfast should be consisted of mainly protein with a complex carb. Ideally we all should be starting the day with 4 egg whites, 2 whole eggs, and either a piece of whole grain toast or a cup of plain oatmeal. This will start our day off right!! And make sure your snacks have protein in it too!! Almond butter on rice cakes or a handful of nuts with dried fruits are real quick on the go healthy snacks which will both fill you up and fuel your body!!

    Keep working it girl and fueling your body will lead to even better workouts!!

    Spy love!!
