...slow progress is progress
Friday, April 05, 2013
I've had a really down week with frustration that nothing is happening with my weight and measurements.... it's just so hard to be 6 weeks in and not be seeing results! I've not lost any weight and my measurements are exactly what they were when I started.
Shawn told me yesterday morning that I am so much stronger than I started... being that I'm doing the TRX exercises a lot faster and at deeper angles etc..... he understands my frustration though... he even left a quote on my desk that made me smile... 'cuz he took the time to do it!
"some quit due to slow progress never grasping the fact that...
..... slow progress is progress"
like I told him, I know that... I just need to get my head and heart on the same track! I know I'm gaining strength, but I've always been strong.... come on, I'm a ranch kid that had to get 50lb feed bags from here to there.... AND I had brothers who didn't believe their sister wasn't their wrestling dummy! So I've always been stronger than people expected me to be! I didn't start this process to become stronger! I am doing this to lose weight ~ getting healthy is the side effect for me! lol!
But then I heard that some of the kids at the school have been commenting on the fact that I look like I've been losing a lot of weight.... so that made me feel better.... even though I know I'm not! :-) I just can't believe that it's possible to be losing the exact same amount of fat as I'm gaining in muscle! lol! But I think my posture is better, core is tighter, so that's huge! Makes me look a lot different :-)
I'm not giving up... I'm NOT QUITTING!!! Keep pushing and changes will be more visable soon! 6 weeks in and it's just frustrating!
