I may catch some slack from you on this one.
-maybe because it’s your trusty fall-back. I don’t know…but I do know it was mine too. That treadmill, I’ll even throw in the elliptical for good measure.
After awhile it lost it’s glory, I may have been some lighter on the scale and my clothes feeling better – but the baby pooch isn’t going anywhere, and I’m just not getting the “body” I was hoping for…
WHY aren’t you seeing results anymore? BECAUSE your body out-smarted you.
“BUT I’M MOVING and my Fitbit shows all these calories burned when I do cardio!”
- It takes MORE than cardio to get the results you want. Muscle is better than the perceived “burn”
- Weights are a girl’s best friend, but are you maximizing HOW you’re lifting? The body is smart and amazing, it adapts to us doing the same things which is great…that’s it’s job. But it’s also what causes plateau’s in our training. Switch it up, keep it guessing, and combine movement that challenges both the body and mind.
- Weight lifting doesn’t show up on your Fitbit (I wish it did). It doesn’t measure the METABOLIC BURN in the 24-48 hours AFTER your workout when your muscles are rebuilding.
- Are you leaving it on the floor? Are you justifying things by saying, “I’m moving” but only giving it partial effort? If you haven’t exercised in forever, then yes…any kind of movement to start is GREAT! — BUT don’t get stuck in that mindset unless the Dr is telling you to. Change happens when our body has to work to catch up, feel behind, not good enough. From this “lack” it scurries to rebuild and match what we’re throwing at it.
I know it can be confusing and overwhelming, but I’m so thankful that it doesn’t have to be. I just follow a plan and a program.
I don’t think, I just do. I don’t stress, I just show up.
Life can be confusing, expensive, and time-consuming, but thankfully working out and eating right doesn’t have to be.
I get it, and why I now host my own groups to help others too.
Eliminate the confusion and get the results. Know how to maximize your efforts and see what you’ve been missing. Sure, I could’ve researched longer, and fumbled around trying this and that…but I knew deep down I had to stop going in circles, because what I had been doing wasn’t working.
