This is known as hell week for me. It is the week before I get to finally go home for spring break (I fly out the 15th), the week I have to study my ass off for finals next week, the week I have to write a million papers, the week I have to try to sleep enough and not be a zombie, and most of all, the week that I am going to work out the most.
Stress on top of stress on top of stress.
Sunday and yesterday I worked out and burned about 600 calories each time. There’s 1,200 calories GONE!!! I ate like poop yesterday (not really poop, i’m not that gross). But today is a new day. The food after dinner always gets to me. I work out and then eat an apple but then after that, I get so hungry and then I just eat a granola bar or a small bowl of granola with milk. I need to stop doing that. After I eat my apple, I’m done for the day. No more eating.
The workouts have been good though. I normally HATE working out, but if I’m going to lose any weight, I need to actually work out. I usually go on the elliptical for about 45 minutes to an hour depending if I want to do weights. Sunday=no weights, yesterday=arms. Man, I’m sore. I love feeling sore though. It means I did some thing right!!
Don’t lose sight of your end goal, even when the going gets rough. You CAN DO THIS.
