too much strength training

Monday, October 15, 2012

Last week I think I did too much. I am very sore and today I am not looking forward to any form of exercise. In fact I took yesterday day off completely. there goes my 10 min a day streak. I hope I learned a lesson..... moderation. but speaking of strength training I find it very hard to motivate myself to do it. My goal is 10 min 3 times a week and I find myself skipping out all the time.

    Oh gosh, I'm about to set up a strngth program for myself. I think 10 minutes per day would be good for me, too. Lifting is not my forte. But I like your idea of moderation--it's key with a lot of things! Take care and keep going! emoticon

As I sit here and read other people's comments and blogs i just have to wonder if I'm not doing enough or when will I really have to do more. Right now I am losing so I'm still good. I exercise about 30 mins a day 6 days a week. I'm not sure how I will have more time to do more. With my busy life sometimes it is hard to get 30 mins in. Always before when I started to add longer times I would quit altogether. Then I found out today that I am probably not eating enough. It feels like a very hard balance and almost overwhelming. I am trying not to dwell on it and just keep working. Like I said right now everything is going well. I am really rambling and am not even sure why. I guess I shouldn't borrow trouble till it comes my way.

    I think you're doing really great. Averaging exercise 6 days per week on top of just plain "living and doing" is wonderful! And like you said, you're still losing, that's an indicator that maybe you're right where you should be? I'm sort of guessing here--new to SP and still learning. Love your blog, though! Keep up the good work!

    I'm losing at a really slow rate but for me....I'm so glad to see it coming off.

I get up early and workout before work. I have to. I will not do it later. I know me.

I too had to look at my calorie range. I just raised the amount of calories I wanted to burn per week and then my range went up a little.

One thing I am going to have to remember to do is count my farm activities in my fitness minutes....because some of that (to my surprise) really does burn a lot of calories.

Don't compare yourself to anyone else. You are very unique and special and just keep working on you and doing what you can do.

    Don't stress yourself out about how much exercise to do. Do what you can. Anything is better than nothing and I think 30 minutes a day 6 days a week is simply emoticon .

Be sure that you are getting enough calories every day - 1200-1500 per day is ideal since that way you are getting enough vitamins, minerals, etc. Don't ever go too low, your body will think it is being starved and will hoard every single calorie it can.

Yes, it's an overwhelming journey...but emoticon

A good day

Friday, October 12, 2012

Today was the first day I have felt like I am getting somewhere. I had to go shopping today and while I was at the store I had to go by the chips and snack food isle. Temptation was there but I was able to walk on by. It felt so good leaving that store with no snacks or junk food in my cart. When I got home I was able to fix a healthy lunch which included fresh veggies. Out of all my struggles eating right is the hardest. I'm doing well with exercising but the eating part is hard. I tell ya It feels great.
