Lately I have been feeling down about my progress, or lack there of. I feel like I have been getting serious about my workouts now for 6 months and haven’t seen an ounce of difference anywhere. And if I don’t see any differences then why keep putting myself through the endless sweat sessions and being sore 6 days of the week. Being sore is not fun.
I keep seeing pictures of these people on Instagram who are overweight and then smoking hot in 6 months. I’m not overweight and haven’t made any progress in 6 months. I don’t eat terribly. I don’t sit around lazy every day. But still I remain the same. I do interval cardio. I lift weights. I drink bottles and bottles of water a day. I eat small meals every 2-3 hours. I do all the tips and tricks out there in the magazines short of 100% clean eating. But nothing.
And then I found this on Instagram.
I recently discovered the library in Philly and read the new Wendy Williams book on the stair master this week. She says that ‘losing weight is not a sprint, it is a marathon.’ So on I go. I stepped up my cardio this week. I have been doing 1-2 interval treadmill workout and reading my new books on the stair master for 20-30 minutes each day. And I mixed in some weight machines for arms on Tuesday.
This is one of my new favorite interval workouts. Also found on Instagram. I follow some great people. I do this workout 1.0 SLOWER than the numbers posted. I can’t imagine running it at the posted speeds currently, but I will get there!
