Time to undo the damage!

Thursday, January 26, 2012

I am returning to SparkPeople after being away for quite some time. I have lost a lot of ground during my time away. I haven't gained that much weight (around 15 lbs over a couple of years) BUT I have lost SO MUCH lean muscle. My body fat comp went up from 26 to 36. I feel so disappointed in myself for letting this happen. What's worse is that I have been in the gym, working out all this time!! The problem is that I dropped my cardio down to about one day a week and only did weight training twice a week. I did the bare minimum and pretty much ate whatever I wanted. Now is the time to turn this around before I find myself writing that my body comp is up even more. I have been logging in my food again and must say that it is so helpful to see it in writing. I am working out most every day and am signing up to run a minimum of one race/month. While it is often difficult, I am trying to run 4 days a week, even if it is only for 20 minutes. 2012 WILL BE the year that I find my groove AGAIN!

    I see by your homepage that you've lost a lot of weight. Don't be discouraged about the 15 pounds you've gained back... You obviously know how to do the right thing. It's just making up your mind to do it. It's easy to slip into old habits (believe me I know). But we can do this!!!! I know we can!!!
