Last Week's Weight: 175
Current Weight: 171.8
Total Loss: -56.2
So this is obviously my first posted weigh-in of the new year. In February. And trust me, it was no accident.
Here's what I've learned in 2.5 years of this weight loss game. I'm either really on, or really not on. There is no in between. There is no "I haven't been tracking that much, but I'm maintaining." If I'm not tracking, I'm gaining. If I'm not working at it every damn day, I'm gaining. It's all or nothing. And for the last month or so, it was nothing.
I have a slow metabolism, which isn't any excuse, it's just a fact that I have to deal with. And, in the past, the only way I've been able to counteract that is with running. So, now that I haven't been running for over 6 months, it's been really tough to find other ways to get the same level of exertion. Before I joined ClassPass I was in a huge workout rut. I was getting sick of my same old same old at the gym, and I had gotten to the point where I was just going through the motions, but wasn't pushing myself nearly as much as I could have.
In the last 3 weeks since joining ClassPass, I have to admit, I am in a much better place, workout-wise. I've been working out 5-6 (!!!) times a week, and pushing myself much harder. I've tried barre, kickboxing, POUND, yoga, circuit training, and more! And because almost every class is new to me, it feels fun and fresh. Fun! Working out can be fun! Except spinning. Sorry spinning, but I don't think we were meant to be.
Anyway, all of this to say that I'm tired of being on the nothing end of the all or nothing spectrum, but today's weigh-in was a huge (HUGE) step in the right direction. I know I can do better than I had been doing, so now I need to prove that.
(And also I have to wear a swimsuit on the beach in 51 days but who's counting).
How do you get out of a workout rut?
