WUB #4: Very discouraged at the moment

Sunday, October 07, 2012

So I know I'm being a complete drama queen but I need some ideas and support. I have completed week one of Insanity and I feel fatter and I gained a pound. I have been eating 1500 cals a day and working out everyday and I just feel like I should have lost a pound not gained one. I know its only a week but Idk i'm just feeling blah right now. Ok I'm done whinning now.

Almost forgot my goals lol ok goals for this week is to switch exercise from night to morning. Also I want to focus on pushing through my workout harder.

    I know it's so hard but it could be a number of things like time of month, fluid retention, anything. Focus on the downward trend and not the number of one week. Getting discouraged leads to giving up

    It probably isn't weight gain. When you start a new exercise regime, especially one that is difficult on your body, it can cause swelling and bloating. It is a natural occurrence, and it can cause a weight fluctuation of anywhere from one to five pound. Chances are, when you weigh next time that will have gone away.

    Hey, I hear you girlfriend! It's so discouraging to be in that spot BUT DON'T GIVE UP!

    You're worth the effort, and sometimes our body needs some time to adjust. Are you drinking plenty of water? For me emoticon is one of the MOST important things, especially when you're working out so hard. You should be drinking 24 oz. during your workout, and at least another 48 during the remainder of the day. If you're working that hard you need to hydrate!

    Give the workout a chance because it sounds like you're doing everything right!
