The Lazy Fitblr

One lazy girl's epic journey to get healthy and learn to run. 23. College Graduate. Maryland.
Worst workout ever.  I feel miserable, and I just feel as though it’s getting harder, not easier.  I did everything and that’s what counts but ugh I’m in a mood now so I am going to bed because unlike the rest of the world, my work never closes so I have to be there by 5:45am.  
Hope you all had a better day

How do you measure results?

This past week i finally started working out again.  While this is such a huge accomplishment in itself, and I have felt amazing, I hate the fact that it takes so unbelievably long to really see the consistent results.  

Basically I have had two fat days back to back even though I worked out yesterday and I just don’t understand.  I know that I’m probably just PMSing or bloated or whatever the fuck else my body is deciding to do to me just to be a total giner, but commmmmeee ooonnnnnnnn!  In the beginning it should be nothing BUT skinny days; am I right?  That’s the motivation that I need.  Not this bullshit where my body is going to be like “oh hey your work pants are going to be too damn big for you but NOPE the next size down are too tight so fuck you”.  

Trying to stay positive and motivated but its so hard.  So I have to be able to find my results in other ways or this whole process is going to drive me insane.  Here are some of the things I have come up with:

Shorter mile times

Increased flexibility

Looser fitting clothes (when my body DOESN’T decide to bloat out of control)

Days sequentially worked out

Increased reps for squats, crunches, weight lifting

Increased energy

What about all of my lovely followers?  What do you do to measure your results and stay motivated?  With that, I am off to workout some of my frustration.

Took a rest day yesterday because I go into work an hour early and had an appointment right after so there really wasn’t time.  And you know what?  That’s okay.  I am not going to allow myself to feel upset because I missed a day.  
Got right back at it today though!  And it was a little tough but I powered through and am SO happy that I did.  I felt amazing afterwards.  Even after just a few days I can see the improvements in my body and the things I am able to do now that I wasn’t before.  Today’s workout:
19 minute interval mile!!! 
20 second plank
40 rep arm exercises each arm
60 crunches
40 squats
a whole bunch of stretches and a few other odds and ends.  

One thing I have to remember is to push myself but to not get overly excited.  I tend to start going and then think I can push myself but I do too much and I end up failing or falling flat on my face.  Slow is good.  Let me build up my tolerance to running again before I start going farther distances.  I want to be able to run a whole mile without stopping, but I realize that is going to take a few more weeks/months and that is FINE. 
Have you worked out today?
