I skipped writing last week's Fitness Friday. It wasn't because I was off track. I've been doing great with the workouts and ok with the diet. Here is a quick breakdown of the last two weeks:
2 nights of running class
3 days of elliptical machine (50-55 minutes each)
3 days of 30 day shred and 20 minutes of elliptical machine
2 days jogging(40-45 minutes each)
Despite tracking calories, I haven't lost any weight. In fact I've gained 1.5 lbs. I'm not sure what to do. I'm thinking of seeing a nutritionist to help with my diet. I will investigate that this week.
I alternate between being accepting the way I look and wanting to lose weight. I know I am overweight but I'm also fit. I can run a 9 minute mile (probably faster if I pushed a little harder.) I can run 5 miles. I can complete the 30 Day Shred without stopping. If you haven't done that workout, it really is an accomplishment. I lift weights. I am strong. My body birthed 2 gorgeous kids and provided for them with breastfeeding. I try to focus on the positive things my body can do. Still I can't help but think about looking better when I'm thinner, being faster, and healthier too.
