Today I woke up thinking, “What a day, what a lovely day!!” I was all happy and super excited and had an amazing morning, it was fun!
Then this afternoon I went to my amazing nutritionist (seriously, she`s amazing!!) and got a check up. The results? Two months killing myself at the gym and NADA. Nada, Nada, Nothing.
I was seriously a little shocked and definitely dissapointed. I understand that the past month I have not been so faithful to my eating, I have not been eating word per word what was on my diet plan and apparently I had been eating way too many crepiocas. So, I have not gained weight or body fat, but after two months I have not lost body fat either.
After talking with my nutritionist, we changed my eating plan and I am resolved to follow the diet plan completely. I will faithfully eat only what is on the plan and be totally focused for 30 days until the next weigh in. Like when you are running the last 500 meters in a run and you give it all you got because you are focused on the end result. I need that sensation of the last 200 meters or a run where you push yourself at your hardest until you arrive. That is how these 30 days will be.
So after talking with the nutrionist, I have my focus on food (or lack of it) but I also have been thinking to myself.. if lifting weights and doing zoomba and intercalating running has not made a change in body fat, then something is wrong. I really feel like weight lifting is not doing anything for me. Like nothing..I try my hardest and there are instructors at the gym, but they are not very helpful when it comes to doubts, it is basically generic. Also, weight lifting builds body mass, but I want to lose inches and lose body fat, not make anything bigger, just smaller. So it does not even make sense to weight lift. I did not even lose a single centimeter in my arms and I do arm exercises three times a week.
I really think that now I should focus on running and aerobic exercise, if I want to lose body fat and inches I need to focus on that. So I am going to change things up for 30 days and see if I see a difference. I will do just aerobic exercise (at least 40 minutes every day) and leave my ab exercises in. Forget arm and leg exercises which have not affected nada. If I see a change in 30 days then I know that I am on the right path.
So yeah, that is me now… discouraged, but really focused all at the same time. Any advice on what I should do? Anyone?
