After nearly a month of working out 4-6 times per week and am still stuck at a weightloss of 7 pounds for the year. I am really getting to a point of frustration, but I WILL NOT allow it to make me quit my journey to health. I am going to keep on this journey regardless of how long it takes me to reach my goal! All that being said, I am taking a break today. My birthday was a month ago and we are having my birthday dinner today at my mom's house. Swiss steak, Mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, and lemon cupcakes with lemon icing. As I continue on this journey, the reality is that there will be times when I don't follow this new eating style, like on my birthday, so I don't feel guilty for doing it. I will definitely eat less than I normally would, and will be at the gym tomorrow to work off anything I eat. I'm also going to be changing up my workout routine. So--here's what my new workout routine is going to look like.
I will be up daily at 5:30 to workout. If I am taking a class at the gym that evening, I will be walking on the treadmill, but if I am not going to be taking a class that evening, I will be doing one of the large number of workout DVD's, like Tae-Bo, Biggest Loser, etc.
Back on the new eating habits tomorrow....Working out every day except Sunday from here on out. The other part is that I will be ordering a Bodybugg, or a similar piece of technology to help me track my calories burned on a daily basis.
