Desperately in need of a pep talk!
Wednesday, August 10, 2011
I'm eating healthy, staying within my calorie range, exercising like a crazy person (Literally - I am on Day 11 of the Insanity workout), and I'm still gaining!!!
My weight has reached an all-time HIGH of 141.8 - highest ever for me, aside from being pregnant. And my spirit has reached an all-time LOW because I am not happy with the skin I'm in and I am actually putting more effort into getting in shape right now than I ever have! This is one of those things about eating right and exercising that just baffles me. The more I try, the worse I look and feel.
I am aware that perhaps I am gaining muscle, especially since I started this pretty strenuous Insanity workout, and believe me, I wouldn't care how much I weighed if I was seeing positive results with my body (like slimming down)... But I FEEL bigger, my clothes don't fit comfortably anymore and my gut, love handles and butt are seriously expanding - Just in time for bathing suit season! YAY!
I am super unhappy. So, what do I do? Continue this workout? Eat less? Call a personal trainer? Or accept this new chubby bod o'mine and start buying clothes in the next size up? Cringe...
In all seriousness though, I need a pep talk! Thank you, Spark Friends! xoxo
