I almost never use the word “hate”. That being said, I HATE my scale! So I obviously cheated on myself by jumping on the scale even though in my previous post I swore I was going to just “love” my body. Ok, so that’s easier said than done. I really want to build up endurance so I can run a 10K this summer. I’ve never done more than a 5K so this is big for me. I started this new workout challenge that kicks my ever luvin as*! I love it though. Since I have been doing it every day for a week I decided, “hey, I prob dropped a couple of pounds, let’s see” bad idea! Scale says I gained 4 lbs!!!!! What???? Uggghhhh. I know, I know, muscle weighs more than fat and I’m prob just gaining muscle, bla bla bla……Going to sleep feeling defeated for today. I am going to get up tomorrow and keep sticking to my program. I am also making a promise to myself to stay off the scale!! At east for a few weeks 😉 I’m a glutton for punishment I guess.
Ps. That is not my scale pictures above. I only wish it was, lol
You know how it goes, new exercise plan seems so easy and fun and you know “this is going to be the key to the body I’ve always wanted!” 2 months later, nothing has changed. Probably because you stopped doing the exercises a month ago. Why does this happen?? I have a lot of will power in the rest of my life! I am a very rational person, I know if I do the exercises and eat right it will work! Why don’t I do it?? I’m so frustrated with myself, not only have I not been exercising, but I have gained 5 lbs! What gives? I blame it on this cold snowy New England winter.
So now what? Start over, something new, dig down inside and find that strength that helped me give birth 3 different times. The strength that helped me through a husband leaving and the strength that I used to raise my baby and teenager without loosing my mind. See! A workout should be easy after that right! Lol, I digress.
So now, a different routine. I am going to get up early, before the baby, and use the elliptical machine I begged my husband for and is now collecting dust. That’s it. I’m starting small, 3 times a week. That’s my goal.
Now, anyone have any strategies they can share with me that work for them to keep up with their workouts? I could use some help 🙂
