From High to Low
Sunday, June 24, 2012
So a couple of weeks back I was feeling very determined, positive and motivated and I was hoping that the feeling would stay, but this last week I went from "hero" to "zero", that's how I feel personally.
I feel as if I'm not giving 100% in my workouts, but I'm exhausted after each one, maybe it's all in my mind? Anyway, I'm going to give it another week and see how I feel after that. It could be a number of things. We've been doing a completely new strength training routine and we also went back to doing our previous cardio schedule of running on the treadmill for 20 minutes (actually increased it to 25 minutes this past week) and fast rope jumping for 20 minutes two weeks ago.
It could be the food I eat as well. Even though I'm within my calorie range each day, I feel as if I'm not making the same amount of healthy choices like I did two weeks ago, but I'm going to improve that. Starting Monday, I'll be back to the usual snacks of fruit and healthy snacks instead of energy bars (which I've been eating more frequently lately). The energy bars could be the reason why I'm feeling more hungry than usual.
What I do to move on from making "not so good" choices, I tell myself that it could have been worse. I could have been making NO healthy choices at all, I could have been where I was 9 months ago, not counting calories at all, weighing 14kg more and eating too much chocolate, candy and junk food. All I can do is to keep going and looking on the bright side of things.
