How could I?, before I complete this let me share a few details. I begin a new workout and still as I begin week 3 am uncertain if I will endure the 5 day, 30 minutes a day, 8 week program. I committed to sharing my response to this program in weight loss or gains as well as in inches lost or gained.
This new workout is Barre and I’ve recently heard of barre but never thought to explore it until by streaming workout offered it. So here I am and it is not at all what I envisioned or thought after the first 10 minutes. It’s a combination of Pilates, yoga, muscle training, ballet and just everything. Yeah it has it all and the weight use is light. Okay back to the the topic, How Could I?
I did good on the first week in inches more so than in pounds but I was satisfied. Nonetheless, week 2 I just lost it I ate a entire sleeve of Girl Scout cookies, and two days later I completed the second sleeve. Now I’m still eating my usual meals and I log my intake and workouts. Calories in, calories expended through workout and just daily steps and whatever activity I do and they vary. I also went to a friend’s birthday party and I showed out in eating but not all at once. I ate cake 2 different flavors, and oh my those potatoes and corn with the crawfish were too delicious. I don’t eat crawfish but I confess I indulged in the potatoes and corn. NOPE I’m not saying how much I ate cause you’d loose a few breathe.
Now I weighed myself and took measurements I had the audacity to question what, I ran a few times last week and I monitored my intake. I lost 0.9 lb and 4 inches much less than the following week. What the heck is going on? I asked myself and myself reminded me. You enjoyed those cookies, corn, potatoes so that’s what’s going on.
I’m not saying you cannot enjoy life but I know you do have to monitor portion size and if you do over indulge one day then it should be that one day not every other day, which I am so guilty and raise both hands to guilt. With a slow metabolism I knew better. SO with that “How Couldd I” expect a greater loss.
Working out no matter the level of intensity I the nutrition is off except a slow response. I’m not angry with myself because I staggered off my fitness journey but this week I am SO COMMITTED . I say when you get off your fit journey or any journey just get back on. Don’t stay off, don’t get angry. Keep it moving me, you, we are human we make our own positive recovery. To a Positive WEEK.
