Can't get the weight to budge

Friday, January 24, 2014

I know this is probably an ironic post from a couple of posts ago, but I'm only human :)

I can't seem to get my weight to budge. I've been consistently working out and eating well, it's just frustrating. I also wasn't able to do my walk/jog yesterday either, which totally bummed me out. I hadn't stretched in a few days, and I'm sure that didn't help. I've been super busy this week so I couldn't get to do the workouts I wanted to do (but I still did exercise) - and now I feel like I have to start all over with the C25K program.

Now onto positive things -

I gave a massage this week and expected my back to be all sorts of sore the next day, which it usually is. Much to my surprise, I didn't feel a darn thing! Progress!

These planks are helping quite a great deal, and I'm loving it! I've done three days in a row of 90 second planks and I feel like a champion! emoticon Tomorrow starts 120 second planks, and I'm really doubting myself. I doubted myself about the 90 seconds, so I'm still hoping for great things. All that goes through my mind is - "You CAN do it. Don't tell yourself you can't, because you CAN!" And it's so true. We do these workouts and say, "I can't." But really, you CAN! Forget what your body is saying, unless it is an unsafe workout - that's different.

We have to change our mind to change our body.
