I hate to admit it but I'm starting to get burnt out. Between work and school and working out - I can't fall asleep and then I can't wake up. Ugh.
I feel like I'm working out so hard (and smart), my diet could use improvement (need variety and more veggies) but the weight loss isn't coming along as quickly as I'd like. I've lost 6.5 pounds in the 8 weeks I've been working out. That's less then a pound a week. The positive thing to focus on is I'm consistently losing weight each week. I've gone down one size and can absolutely see a difference (and feel a difference) in my body.
My work out schedule since June 21st (roughly 2.5 weeks ago, when summer term started), I do dance aerobics for 90 minutes on Mondays and Wednesdays. I go to an hour long class at 24 Hour Fitness on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. I'm not lifting because I'm so exhausted - it's a battle just to find the strength/endurance to finish the 24 Hour Fitness classes, let alone try to lift. I'm hoping my body will start to feel strong and I'll break through my plateau and start hitting a weight loss of 1-2 pounds a week till I hit my goal. I would like to be at my healthy and ideal weight of 135 pounds by fall term (late September), but at this current rate I'm losing weight, I won't be there.
I have a rafting/camping trip in two weeks that I'm anxious about wearing a bathing suit and of course my Vegas trip the last weekend in August. But I really try not to think about these trips - I just want to train my body so I'll be better at maintaining an ideal weight - instead of all the up and down I've done all my life!
I'll update you in a few weeks to see if things have changed.
