Something happened a few weeks ago – I decided I could no longer rely on the scale! For years I’ve let that # define me and how I feel about my body. It didn't have a meltdown nor was I throwing in the towel, it was simply a realization that the scale is not something that has worked for me and prob never will, it deflates me instead of motivate. Now, I’m relying on how my clothes fit and photo comparison.
I’ve also been a cardio bunny – rarely picking up any weights.
I love running and always will but I needed a little break from it after marathon training.
I’ve been sticking to heavy lifting lately with very little cardio, 4-5 times a week and I'M LOVING IT!!!
I’ve also joined in on the IIFYM dieting – Macro nutrients, flexible dieting etc. This method has me eating 1789 calories while hitting the right amount of Macros – Carbs, Protein, Fat & Fiber. I'm still learing alot about this plan but so far, I like what I see and I like how I feel.
I really never thought I’d feel this good – I seriously thought I had to spend hours doing cardio and starve myself to see any results!
I’m just getting started and already I’m seeing differences in areas I've always had trouble with and these little differences are what keep me motivated, and the best part? I’m NOT starving!! nor do I care what # may be on the scale, I just want to keep working hard to see results :)
I’m very excited about the new Year and my new goals!
