It has now been established that my metabolism is dead and has no plans to revive itself any time soon. How do I know this, you ask? The proof is in the pudding (sugar-free, of course). The Big D is just not producing the desired results. Nor is my exercise regimen which last week included SIX workouts. Yes, 1-2-3-4-5-6. Count them and weep. Or at least that's what I've been doing. Workouts that have included running, people. RUNNING! Those of you who know me in real life know just how desperate I must be to even speak that word, let alone act it out!
SO. Want to know how I did last week after dieting (I will confess to having ONE rough day with the eating) and working out SIX times? I gained 1.5 lbs. GAINED. Tell me how that is possible?!?!?! And I don't want to hear anything about how muscle weighs more than fat...blah, blah, blah. Or don't mind the number on the scale...blah, blah, blah. Or your metabolism slows down as you get older, yeah, yeah, yeah.
It also just so happens that the 1.5 lbs I gained this week is the amount I lost last week after 4 weeks of not one single budge on the scale. So, essentially? FIVE WEEKS of no progress.
(That's me screaming.)
(That's me screaming again.)
So you can see now why I have not been posting much as of late. I knew if I did it would just be this emotional vomit. I guess if you are looking for something cheery and uplifting you should try another blog today. Because this stinks. Period. And yes, I realize that disclaimer would have been more helpful at the beginning of this post. Feel free to file a complaint.
(Taking a deep breath...)
Phew. That was not pretty, was it? Just count your blessings that you didn't have to experience my emotional vomit in real life like this friend did today. Thanks, Janelle.
I feel like those of you who stuck with me through all that spewing, deserve a little light at the end of the tunnel. So, I'll leave you with this. I AM NOT GIVING UP. I'm more convinced than ever that this is a spiritual battle for me and I know that the WINNER is on my side. The other guy needs to just give it up and GO HOME!
