performance: gaining 0.2 lb a week
What can I share....turned 30 this year and realizing that I can't quite eat whatever I want any more. This realization has prompted me to begin working to develop healthy habits now. Guess my attitude is, 'if I can get myself in check and following a healthy lifestyle now, hopefully it will be easier to maintain as I get older and life gets a bit more complicated'.
I'm fairly active - started running a couple years ago and try to get to the gym or spend time active outside at least 5 or 6 times a week. No kids yet, so it's easy at the moment. Biggest challenge is working strength training into my routine...would rather do 4 hours of cardio than a half hour of free weights.
Until this year I've never put much focus on my diet or trying to lose weight and subsequently I often feel like a total moron. I also get frustrated b/c despite efforts to eat better and pay more attention, my weight changes very little. Case and point...I ran my first half marathon at 28 and despite running well over 20 miles a week during training I didn't lose a single pound...very discouraging. Since then it's basically been a repetitive pattern - lots of activity, very little change.
Anyway, I'm trying to stay focused on developing healthy habits with an added goal of moderate weight loss. I came to grips with the fact that I will NEVER be 125 lbs (at 5'7 it probably wouldn't be all that healthy for me anyway) - but I'd love to lose just 5 or 10 lbs and feel like I can be in control of my weight either way.
Open to suggestions, feedback, or messages from others in similar a stage and challenge.
Thanks for dropping by ; )
