Well I will cut to the chase rather quickly, since I’m exhausted and need to head to bed. I didn’t do so well in terms of weight loss. BUT, I am surprised I had a deficit to begin with. I mean it was Thanksgiving weekend and I wasn’t counting or journaling everything I consumed. That and my slip up on Friday…. and not going to the gym for 3 days in a row. Yikes! I’m even more scared for next week’s b/c of it being my bday weekend = booze. Ayyyy…
Anywho, I was talking to my friend Nick about how I’m so anxious to get this damn weight off. He gave me 2 recommendations.
1) HIIT – High Intensity Interval Training. This is legit the best way to burn fat or so I’ve read. Google it!
2) Ketogenic Guide aka low carb/no carb diet… and while I love carbs (as does everyone else), I am just fully convinced that my body doesn’t ‘handle them/deal with them’ very well. As I’ve stated before, I get worried about going on these Atkins-type regimens b/c I have little to no energy at the gym when I deprive myself of carbs. But it’s worth a shot at trying it again, right?
What do you all think? I think if I were to incorporate these 2 things into my routine, I’d see some serious results. But damnnn will it be painful! Buttt… pain is temporary and pride is forever, no?
I’m thinking of trying low carb as in like no more than x amount/day. I have to figure out what the x-variable is, but I’m DEF considering this route. There’s no reason a my fat arse can’t lose 15lbs in a month. It’s already been a month and I’m nowhere close to being there!
I must be patient, I know. I didn’t get this way overnight and I do realize it will take some time. I just keep thinking of other ‘get fit quick’ ways and I hafta stop that thinking. As Bob Harper says, there’s no quick & easy way to thin. Nothing substitutes good diet & exercise. Tru dat, B. Harpz. I’m just venting… :-p
Alright kiddos, until tomorrow!
