Two months and it is still a struggle

I huff and I puff - but I am diligently going to the gym to take my Zumba classes and Body Jam classes. You would think that my body would have adjusted by now and that I would see SOME type of difference.

But no.

Don't get me wrong, I am enjoying myself. I am giving it all I've got - I am just at that point where I am starting to slip into the.. "Hey, why can't I see a difference yet?" Maybe it had something to do with skinny biotch yelling "WE ALL WANT TO BE A SIZE 4" or maybe it is the weather changing and I want to hibernate or maybe I am notorious for sabotaging any and all effort to make myself healthier.. (hmm.. )

Yep Yep Yep

The mood is a little different tonight. I remained super positive all week last week (a concentrated effort.) Maybe I used up all of  the good I have. Maybe there is a limited supply I get each year and I threw it all into one week for self preservation.

Maybe I am just tired.

Again - maybe I just sabotage my own welfare.

Whatever it is - I am moody as hell, tired as hell and less than thrilled with things.

Maybe I'm hormonal. Maybe I'm crazy.

Hell.. maybe I need a Lortab and a glass of wine and call it a night. LOL

Since I don't have any pills, and I haven't had a drink in almost a year - I guess I better just try a little prayer, veg on the coach, and get a good night's sleep. I can regroup in the morning.

You just have to find a way to keep it fun, and try not to think what that nasty lady said. If it's more about the good time than trying to get results, than I betcha the results will come so fast you'll be shocked :)

But it's okay to be tired, and we all sabotage ourselves I think. At least I do sometimes.

Are you lifting weights? I worked with personal trainers and was one and weights are the way to change your body. In fact, most trainers will have overweight people back off cardio and focus on weights/diet.
I read a lot of weight loss info. and weight training/clean eating are the main focus. 20-30 mins of cardio 3-4 times a week at high intensity is what is suggested. In fact the last study I read said people doing high intensity, 30 min., 3 times a week lost more than those doing 6-90 min., 5-7 days a wk.
I know from experience weights/diet are the way to lose weight.
I am right there with you and know how hard it is.

Ya know, sometimes you just do need the glass of wine or the cup of cocoa and a good movie and a blanket to cuddle under while wearing your bunny slippers. Exercise is loathsome, though I do admit it's a necessary evil and I usually feel better when I do some. But every so often we still need to decompress, and not let any size 4 chickies with nothing more important to do with their lives than to lift weights and do jumping jacks make us feel guilty!!!

I'm feeling you this week, Ms N. I'm feeling the same exact way. I think the craziness of vaca is actually catching up with me, and I'm drained, too. (And moody as well, just ask PG. He'll vouch for it!) Maybe we're having some Mid-October gloominess? I'm thinking of you, sister, and trying to muster up some positive energy to toss your way. Hang in there. And know that you are not alone.

p.s. I, for one, will see to it to enjoy a glass of wine tonight. I'll say a toast to you, ok?

You are definitely not alone. I think the "funk" is hitting a lot of people. As for the results, you are probably getting them in the ways you can't notice just yet. Like your muscles are toning up. Soon, though, you will begin to see the outward changes. Your clothes will begin to fit differently. Pay no mind to the scale. Those evil things should only be in doctors offices. Hugs to ya!

hey I have been in a funk and so is's going around. Holidays and all :)

Cardio isn't meant to get easier. Ever. That's why people hate it :)
