Supreme 90 Day 21 - Total Body .... What is happening

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

Well - this is strange I am blogging in the morning. But let me start with yesterday.

I walked to Starbucks then went to a full mind blowing 8 hour day of work - then heading to my husband's shop to do my work there. After doing a few more errands, I got home only to face Supreme 90 Total Body. This was a 25 minute workout that was made up of circuits to workout each part of the body.

Fast Forward to this morning ... I slept terribly. This morning was a run day. I listened to my body and did NOT run. I am seriously struggling - it has hit during my 3rd week of working two job. I have Core Dynamics workout tonight.

I need to look at not doing exercise after 6:30PM - so I can hopefully sleep better. My weight is not doing much more than hanging on it is up and down by 1 pound. I am beginning I don't know how to loose anymore. I have tried to eat less than the adjusted for exercise calorie range....I have tried eating within the adjusted for exercise calorie range - NOTHING.

I am getting down on my failure. I know the scale doesn't tell it all - but the clothes are fitting tighter. I know EPIC FAIL. I know muscle is tighter, but heavier than fat... but I am getting heavier and bigger.

I feel like I am failing in all categories lately. Hopefully this will change. The new job is overwhelming and I feel like I got in over my head.

Not sure if I am looking forward to the day.

    I too workout in the evenings-its the only time that really works for me. Usually done by 7 though if I am walking and its nice out I sometimes extend it.
    I could never be a morning exerciser. Yes I have heard why its good but I feel I sleep the best in the am hours like especially 3-6 am so I would never cut into that time to workout so I do it in the evenings.

    I agree with wonderwoman! Stress puts weight on us and makes it very difficult to lose weight. You have so much on your plate right now. I agree too that exercising in the evening is probably too stimulating and keeping you from getting good sleep. Studies now show that poor sleep is linked to weight gain so I would try to change your routine a bit. Is there any way you can exercise in the morning or during a lunch break? Maybe in the evenings you could go home and do some yoga to relax you?

    Hang in there Mary, try to decrease your stress and increase your sleep. I hope things get better!

    Honestly I think it may be the stress of everything. ALL the work. The calorie counting. Trying to get all the exercise in. I know for me, sometimes the harder I try, the worse it all gets - yes weight gain and bloating, etc. High stress=NO weight loss in my life. Maybe you need to relax a little and just do the best you can. Also from a personal perspective, cutting out the Starbucks cold turkey (yes, even the psudo-healthy stuff) was a big game changer. Just saying.
