Like Rosie said "there is no luck to your success" It is you versus you in this battle. Looks like you been doing well, keep it up champ. If all your cards are in line, then the only variable is time. With time will come results, be patient and work hard!
My dog stole my ab ball! But I still managed to get a workout in! Here's what I was working with today.
15 minutes of intense HITT training.
2 rounds of 20 squats, 20 lunges, 20 stepups, and 20 seconds of plank.
I feel greattt and I didn't eat the frosted flakes no worries !
How are you feeling? How are things going? Just checking up on yah, I started my journey 2 weeks ago for my natural competition; we are in the same kind of boat! Keep pushing forward and believing in yourself!
What's a natural competition? Thanks again for the kind words!!
As far as not seeing weight loss, like I said before, DON'T focus on SCALE weight - focus on BODY COMPOSITION and how your body looks in the mirror and fits in clothes and feels overall. Most people lose fat from their midsection LAST and so it's just persevering until you are lean enough that it goes from there.
A "natural competition" is a Figure or Bodybuilding competition where the Federation is considered "natural".
Keep at it - a week is NOTHING in the grand scheme of things. Keep your eye on the prize and envision yourself the way that you want to be EVERY day!
Rosie gives great advice.
I know though than when maybe I stuck on something I always ask some of my helpful friends around here. You can always good and you tube as well to see videos and get ideas.
I'm offering a logging opportunity if you're interested you can apply... It's worth a shot for a free sup to help performance in the gym and sleep. Thought I'd through it out there for ya.
Either way keep up the hard work.
Sub'd. Ill be supportive here and offer advice when I can.
Thanks for answering that Rosie. Yes we are all here willing to support and help you if need be. Just helps if you post so that we know you haven't "fell off the train." I know it's hard but you can do it, believe in yourself and be consistent. Each day is a victory and this isn't a sprint, think of it more like a marathon
A great work out is Spin, im a spin instructer, and I also love taking classes
BTW for everyone, my name is Bett!
So some updates on me. I haven't checked my weight, but I know that I am getting leaner. I can just feel it. And I was sore for the first week, now i'm only sore after I workout it So I'm recovering faster, feeling stronger, and working harder. My workouts this week were basic and I planning on kicking up some starting this weekend.
I've had a lot of food cravings this week, I'm not sure why. My first week I didn't have any. Some cravings I have are healthy. But the others are cheese related. I have a love affair with cheese lol. So i've submitted to a few sticks of string cheese, so at least I didn't go overboard. Next week I'm going to try some crock pot meal ideas to help with food prep and saving me some time. Next week coming up is busy so it's going to hard to squeeze in some workouts. I will do it no matter what though. I've been consistent with 5 workouts a week, and I work out until I feel like i'm going to vomit haha. Any who, I think that's it for updates. I will post my weekend workout tomorrow. Any food ideas I'm getting reallllllly bored with what I'm eating. Chicken, brown rice, green beans....turkey burger(no bun) brown rice green beans lol.
