So I'm in an INSANE diet/workout funk that started about a month ago and keeps getting worse by the day. I know I posted that I thought I was getting *too* cut in the arms (but I liked everything else!)... so my workouts have been off ever since.
Not to mention I've eaten fairly low fat (minus some weekend off days... see previous posts) for the past year and have been told I need to eat *more* healthy fat but I didn't listen because I was scared and "scorned" for eating things like nuts when my fat percentage was up (27.8% a year ago compared to 13.28 a few months ago)... and well, I just have zero energy. NONE. I keep missing workouts and they're not that good when I do make it and are honestly getting boring... I also don't like the apathy and would still much rather be active than on the couch.
It's like I went from hero to zero overnight.
I signed up for a Crossfit-type boot camp class 3x a week (which starts at the end of next month) so I'm hoping that helps because I am just so tired of isolation lifting and want to become more fit from a full body perspective... and I KNOW my eating needs to change and/or I need to intake more (I usually level out at 1200-1300 cals)... but I don't know how... I'm thinking of trying Paleo but I'm sooo scared of the fats and of undoing things!!!
Not to mention it seems like my body is storing fat anyway right now... almost like my metabolism has suddenly dropped. Even though I'm hungry all the time and I still do eat (healthy things... the "fatshredder" figure competitor type of diet that worked for... a year!!) but I *feel* off and I swear that I'm losing some of my cuts and that my clothes are tighter. The scale hasn't moved but I've weighed this much with MUCH more body fat before so I'm worried about losing lean tissue (not pounds per se). I think mostly because everything is just so sporadic and not consistent (boredom maybe??).
Soo I've asked people for some recipes and I'm super excited about my new Crossfit routine but what do I do over the next month? I just *have* to shake this funk but I don't know how!!!! How do I get over my fear of eating fats and maybe not 175g of protein a day??? It worked before so why does it feel like it's stopping... or maybe it's just because a year is too long to eat this way (again, besides the occasional/needed cheat days)?
Edit: I used to have lots of energy before... I was active, eating, healthy. I loved it. Why the stall? Do I just need to change things up?
