Slowing your pace does not mean to stop or decrease the frequency already planned for your workouts. Or if you are like me and have a calendar to follow do that by all means. Slowing your pace means to not over exhaust your self and cut calories to almost nothing.
There are days you may get that extra energy and do more than one workout. I definitely have these days. I may do a calendar workout, run physically on the pavement or the treadmill (yeah I get lazy sometimes) and the elliptical. Or a boxing workout, okay let me share, I must. My daughter gifted me with boxing gloves and a bag I was so excited although it was on my list. Excited, I was so on my rest days I will box and include cardio. BUT I am not going to exhaust myself with as a few friends have shared.
Yes doing two calendar workouts, run and later repeat and then they felt as if changes were occurring too slow and their patience for change was not happening the way they planned.
First change in the body and I’m speaking of those pounds and inches and not 5. It did not happen with a few days of overeating or missing a week of workout. NOPE so
1. Be consistent- set a workout schedule and follow or if you’re like me streaming your workouts then follow the calendar the trainer has for the best results
2. Stay focused on your goal acknowledge your non scale victory and know the scale will fluctuate depending on your intake (but it should not be a huge fluctuation)
3. Change is double fold on a fitness journey for lifestyle change- workout and the kitchen. Uh huh NUTRITION major component.
So yes, SLOW YOUR PACE, just BE CONSISTENT, STAY FOCUSED, DON’T NEGLECT NUTRITION
