I Love My Trainer...

Lol! I scream "I hate you" when he is putting me through grueling workouts but smile when we are done for the day and I'm hurting all over. The reason? Simple! feeling sore means I'm doing something right.

This week has been a good one for me. I've exercised for four out of five days and I've been eating right. After all, weight loss is 30% exercise and 70% diet. Doesn't it hurt when after sweating and struggling to burn 500 calories in the gym, you then go on to binge on a 3000 calorie meal? I'm tired of negating my hard work with food. I don't want to sound like a broken record so I will say this... It's getting better everyday.

When Food Becomes The Enemy....

I was talking with a friend after our workouts at the gym this morning. The discussion centered on how our food intake was affecting our weight loss. See, when I exercise it's an intense affair. I've always talked about how my food choices seem to negate my exercise efforts.

Anyway, my friend then starts to talk about how I should say no to food after 6pm. It was at that point that I made a crazy statement that startled both of us. "Maybe I should try saying no to food after 2pm". 
"What?" Are you crazy? You are acting as if food is the enemy, she said. You see, there are times when even the sane ones like us who have read lots of literature and know that unsustainable eating practices like this do more harm than good get impatient. Lol! The bottom line is I'm not going to do that. It's not a race. I will patiently do the right things.

This morning's workout was a cool 5km walk/run on the treadmill. Let's see what tomorrow brings.

181 Days Left......

Yes. I have 181 days left to prove that I didn't just waste 181 opportunities to lose weight. My year started well and then things went haywire in April. I found it difficult to balance my late hours at the office with exercise. Heck! I was usually too tired to prepare a meal let alone exercise. I felt so ashamed when I realized that I haven't hit any of my weight loss goals for the year.

However, I'm not just going to sit down and feel sorry for myself. I fell and now I'm getting back up. The goals remain the same. If it means I have to workout out twice a day to ensure that I have had my 60minutes of daily exercise, then that's what I'm going to do. I'm tired of being fat dammit!
