Okay, time for a quick update:
As you can see, I didn’t gain or lose this week. This is mostly because at the end of last week, I stopped doing INSANITY. I realized I was just hurting myself, and wasn’t feeling very exercised. Then, over the weekend was General Conference.
For those who read this and aren’t LDS (Mormon), General Conference is like a twice-a-year Mormon Super Bowl. Twice a year, members of the LDS church gather in chapels and homes to listen to our prophet and apostles speak to us about how to more fully life the Gospel of Jesus Christ. You can learn more about General Conference here, and about Mormons there.
And because this event is like the Super Bowl, that means lots of high calorie, tasty food. So any weight I started losing last week was quickly recovered, and then some. In fact, I had to work hard Monday and Tuesday just to get back to square one.
So here I am: square one. Again.
But the good news is I haven’t given up. I have started going to the gym every morning at 5:00 AM, and have burned at least 600 calories per visit, doing both cardio and weight lifting. I have also started using MyFitnessPal (I’ll write another post about this resource soon) to track my calorie intake.
Hopefully this will be the last time I’ll have to give the sad report of no weight lost (or of weight gained).
