Starting over, again...

Friday, November 08, 2013

It seems that no matter what kind of workout program I did all summer, I managed to GAIN weight. I had done so well prior to the summer and was at my smallest back in the spring. I trained and trained and completed my first 10K, then trained and did my first triathlon relay. No matter what, I gained weight. So, I'm starting over with Insanity. That seems to be the only program that has given me great results. My hubby is going to do it with me. We're starting the program tomorrow. Yesterday I hit the treadmill and I plan to do that again today. In the meantime, I'm also cleaning up my diet and tracking it much more carefully.

At one point I was almost into the "Normal" category for BMI, but I keep creeping higher and higher into the "Overweight" category. This is just unacceptable! My clothes are fitting tighter and I refuse to buy new bigger clothes. I just need to get my rear in gear and reverse this process. I can do it!

    You CAN do it!!! You know how, you've done it before. And you're right about tracking, keeping a record of what I put into my body makes a huge difference. I believe in the motto, saying, whatever you want to call it:
    "You can't out exercise a bad diet".
    I think this is especially true for women. Men, to a certain degree can get away with adding more exercise and lose weight without cutting calories, women, not so much. I know personally I can't be lax about tracking my food, I don't want to go down that path again. I've been there too many times before.
