I have not abandoned my blog! I have not stopped exercising! Ok, so some days here and there, I’m fucking exhausted and the last thing I want to do when I get home from work and picking up the kid is to exercise. Nor do I want to shorten my sleep length by waking up at the butt crack of dawn to exercise.
That being said, I really have not stopped. I’m loving my new heart monitor. I understand its purpose now. If I’m in my target heart rate and am moving around, I will burn calories. If I’m at the peak of my target heart rate or slightly higher and move my tush I burn even more calories! The other day I burned something like 530 calories in a 55 minute workout where the time before I did this workout, I had only burned like 485. Why? because my heart rate was much higher and I pushed myself much more. So what’s the problem? I haven’t lost any weight. Nothing. Nada. Zero. I don’t care how my clothes feel or if my friends say that my waist looks slimmer. Bullshit. I want to see it on the scale. I want to see it on the scale or what’s the point? I know I’m stronger. My last fit test showed me that in spades. Some exercises I double in from the first time. My push-ups especially! But not 1 fucking pound.
I’m not going to give up though. I’m not stopping until I can look at a picture taken of me and proudly tag myself on facebook. That moment won’t come anytime soon but it has to come eventually.
