I am in a funk. It’s official.
I have been working out four to six days a week for three-and-a-half weeks now and I have lost no weight. None. I’m not going to stop, but I am sorely discouraged.
I know that if I ate nothing but salads, I would lose a lot of weight. But I just can’t make myself do that. I have cut back on my intake. I don’t eat after dinner. I eat tons of fiber and drink only green tea and water.
For each workout, I do a half-hour of pounding, high-intensity cardio on the elliptical, the treadmill, the bike or the stairmill. Then I get my little WeightTrainingWorkoutsThatWork book, and do whatever I am supposed to do that day. Lately, it’s been one-muscle-a-day workouts that are intense and challenging. I often have to fight the big boys an the high-school jocks to get a weight bench to myself.
But it’s worth it. I love it. The hardest part is getting to the gym, but once I am there, I really enjoy it.
Usually. But not today.
Today I was sore in my right hip and hamstring. I was really pushing myself to just get through the cardio, and instead of doing my weights at the gym, I just came home and did crunches on my ball. It was hard and I was discouraged.
Then I weighed myself. Ugh.
I know, I know. I’m not going to stop. I’m just very bummed. I am just so tired of working so hard andnot seeing results.
Anybody know of a good pill?
