I haven't written a post in a few days, so wanted to keep myself accountable. Feel like I don't have much to mention, so I haven't posted. I guess there is more going on in my life than I think. Yesterday I decided to make a change for myself. Obviously, I don't have enough things going on in my life right now, so why not add some more. This is all personal change things that I am going to put into action.
1. I am not going to do any strength training for the rest of the week/weekend (6 days). This is an experiment I am doing with a group I am part of. This idea is that I need a WIN in my life right now. I have so many things going on that I need to see the scale move. I am at the frustrated point where I get past a certain spot, then back up, then down, then up. It is so frustrating! I watch what I eat, I workout...as you can see from my videos, and I strength train. I am going to do some cardio in these 6 days, as working out is a very mental stress relief process for me, but no strength training. The hope...the scale moves. If it does...awesome! I will see where I am next Monday and go from there.
2. Take a microscope to my food logging. I believe I am pretty good at this already, but I am going to be super anal about it the next 6 days and make sure I really am eating the amount of calories that I think I am eating. Let's see what happens. Am I really eating 1800 calories, when I think I am eating 1200? I will find out.
These are my changes for the next week. I still have a lot going on outside of this, but weight-loss wise, this is what I am going to try. I am not changing my eating, or anything like that, just examining my ability to be truthful to myself. I'll let you know how it went on Tuesday.
My name's Amanda and this is a blog about my story and my life. My hope is to motivate some of you to get going on your weight-loss journey as well as help people along the way. If you have questions about how to get started, or anything else, feel free to ask.
