I took a month hiatus from my "diet/fitness" plan, and I must say that it was enjoyable to not worry about my exact caloric intake or trying to fit in my workout routine. What wasn't enjoyable, though, was how I started to feel toward the end of this month. I just felt... heavy. I could see a slight difference in my body since I hadn't truly worked out in around a month, and I didn't like that. Plus, I gained like 3 lbs, which doesn't sound like much, but it put me back to 12 lbs lost instead of 15. That's not okay with me. So much effort from January to March, and to see myself change in April was not good. So... here's to a new start.
This time, I'm going with TurboFire. I read about the program, and apparently it's way longer than I'd expected, but hopefully that will help me to stick with it a bit better. It's a really intense cardio program that is supposed to burn more calories than normal cardio routines. God knows I want to get to my 145 lb. goal, so I'm going to put all of my effort into this program right now.
So far today, I'm doing pretty well! I've been eating correctly: breakfast, morning snack, lunch... with plenty of water to go with it. I know it's just the beginning, but hopefully I can stick to this program better than all of the others. :)
So... thanks for putting up with me and my hiatus! Here's to another fresh start. :)
