My thoughts this week on getting into shape are nicely summed up by this video:
I’ve worked really hard this week and I’ve seen ZERO improvements in my stats. I’m not even going to post them because nothing has changed from last week. NOTHING.
I am in pain. The lower half of my body is still achy and sore from my 3 hour hike on Wednesday. In addition to this, I’ve gone to the gym 4 times (Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday), where I burned a total of 2280 calories on the cross training machine and spent 1.5 hours doing weight training. On Tuesday, I took a “day off” and did a 60 minute yoga video. All this, for zero results. It’s super frustrating.
I realise that what is probably happening is that I am building more muscle and muscle weighs more than fat. Right? Dear Lord, let this be right! I do feel a little discouraged, but I have not lost my motivation. I’m going to continue going to the gym and hiking and doing yoga. But, damn girl, getting in shape was soooo much easier in my 20’s…
