Sorry that it has been so long since I posted. I have been busy and you all know what happens when life gets in the way.
Anyways, I did finish my 21 day challenge and not only did I do 21 days, but have been going strong ever since. Forcing myself to go to the gym everyday was reall really hard at first. But gradually it has become something that I dont even second guess.
This is how my weeks go. Monday, Wednesday, Friday I work out first thing in the morning before I go to work. I usually aim to burn 200-400 cals of cardio, and then I do a weight lifting cuirciut that is already at my gym. Also, on Monday and Friday nights I play volleyball. On Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday I do pure cardio, usually at night. I try to burn between 800-1000 cals on those nights. Sunday is my rest day.
I have been perfect on this up until this weekend. I woke up yesterday and literally could not breathe. I ended up going grocery shopping in the morning like I always do and then sleeping the rest of the day. This morning I woke up still not feeling great but definately better than yesterday, but still decided to rest so that I can go hard the rest of the week next week.
My eating has been on point the entire time. I have been giving myself one cheat a week, but they have been still good for me options. Last week I treated myself by going out for frozen yogurt. This week I just treated myself to Panera Bread, and had a salad and a whole wheat baguette. So I try to keep my cheats still within my calorie limits and still log them in MyFitnessPal.
So all in all the month of February has been good for me. I lost a total of 5.4 lbs and I feel great. I think I finally found out how to make this a lifestyle change and not just a “diet.”
Hope you all had a great month and I promise I will try harder to post more often!
