WOW where do I start. I am completely stressed out. I have changed my diet yet again. BUT this time I am seeing a nutrionist. They have me eating 1500-1700 calories and 120 grams of protein a day. DO you know how hard that is?? I had two good days in a row and I was at 1730 or 1715. They want me at 1600. WICKED HARD!!! YEs I live in Mass. LOL THen they changed my workouts. They want me to quit my cardio or limit it. SO not as much Zumba. Not happy about that one. Ilove that class. But it is very over whelmed right now with people. The last class I went to was 28 people and very croweded. You could barely move. So maybe not going to THAT class and doing strength would be better. I just don't see how the weights for 30 mintues is going to do any good since I am not sweating. I think I am not losing because of stress. I work full time during the week and a daycare provider and part time on the weekends as a shift supervisor at Rite Aid. I work 7 days a week. This weekend was awful at Rite aid I work with some dependant people. I wanted a weekend off and when I asked fo r the weekend that I wanted they told me I couldn't have it because two managers already asked for that weekend off. Okay so I pick another one and that one was gone too. I work everyweekend so the managers don't have to work Sunday. Does that matter?? AParently not. So I will take one sooner rather then later. Okay I can go on and on and on about what is bugging me but I think I would write a book. So I will save some for later this week.

Thanks for reading

    I don't really sweat during strength training either and today, after 38 minutes of circuit training I had burned 169 calories.
    It's too bad you have to work so much. Is there any way you can cut back? You need a rest day from everything!

    Jenn, I think the nutritionist and adding strength training sounds like two good ideas for you. Hopefully those will help you to reach your goals. Hang in there at work, I know it is hard to be where you feel like you are not appreciated. It sounds like you really need a day off and I hope that you get one soon. emoticon Anne

    Hey Jenn! Wow, you said a lot in your blog. I think it is great that you are seeing a nutritionist. I think he/she may want you to build a bit more muscle. The more muscle mass you have, the more calories you burn, in theory. So maybe she wants you to build muscle then start the cardio back up. It also sounds like she is pushing you to make some changes that you already know you need to make. If the class is already really busy, you probably aren't getting the full benefit of the class anyway.

    I'm sorry that you haven't had any luck getting time off from work. It is hard to work in an environment where you feel under valued.

    Keep your chin up. I hope things work out for you.

    Oh, it's great that you are seeing a nutritionist!!! I think that will really help you! I'm going to start seeing one too now that I've plateaud! Why less zumba? That seems strange...calorie burn is calorie burn right?

    Keep up the great work!
