Not Quite 20 Straight Days of Exercise

Thursday, November 12, 2009

After 19 days of exercising every day straight I fell off. I did technically exercise on day 20 but I didn't consider it a true workout for myself. I spent hours and hours walking around casinos. On day 21 my body was SO WORN OUT that I actually spent all maybe 5 hours sleeping. That is when I realized that I had over done it and my body just needed a rest. As a result, I took a few more days off and tomorrow I'll be picking up where I left off.

I also need to get back on track with my nutrition. For some reason I seem not to be losing weight which isn't so bad but I find myself gaining a few pounds which is a bit discouraging but not devastating to my efforts. I refuse to give up and I know where I'm headed, I just need the a GPS if you will so that I find my destination without a lot of wrong turns and dead ends.

    Hey, even the Biggest Loser show says you should rest 1 full day for every 6 that you work out!

    You are doing great!

    I'm trying for 18 straight days myself. I know you'll get your mojo back soon after you rest a bit

    Maybe a rest is just what you needed right now.

    I am also frustrated by a plateau. I keep logging meals and workouts, and hopefully my body will catch up. If I stop using the trackers, that's when I am in real trouble!

    Hang in there!
