She's absolutely right. First off, the number is just a number. True, it needs to be a smaller number than it is right now or I'm going to need to buy new pants, but it IS just a number. I've also lost this weight before and I know how to do it. The problem? I don't think the running is going to work this time. This is what I did on Saturday.
Like she said, I need to "keep my body guessing". This is where cross training and strength training comes in. I've also been more lax with my diet and that needs to stop. Period. How am I fixing this? By tracking my food again using the Livestrong Daily Plate app. I've also bumped my daily calories down a bit.
I've also been going through the Tough Mudder strength workout 2-3 times per week (on days I don't run) and the One Hundred Push Ups app 3 times a week (on running days usually). The Tough Mudder workout kicks my ass and right now and I'm only completing the circuit once. Hopefully in the next couple weeks, I'll be able to go through it twice. I need to modify many of the moves (hello, I can't do a pull up yet or a decent "real" pushup) but I'm seeing progress. Welcome to the gun show :)
So, while the scale isn't exactly cooperating with me, I'm changing behaviors that will HOPEFULLY net some nice results in the end. That is my confession this week. What's yours? What are do doing to change behaviors that are negatively impacting where YOU want to be?
