Now Bust A Move
Friday, February 03, 2017
One thing that has always been difficult with weight loss for me is that I do eat pretty healthy overall... but major weakness here CARBS! I eats lots of fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, I like to eat more of a vegetarian diet so I have a pretty low fat intake overall. This usually sets me up for success when I do try to lose weight because its not that big of a change for me.. the only major change is carbs... that beautiful pasta, that gorgeous pizza, and those awesome muffins. While I always add veggies and use low calorie elements, ie greek yogurt etc, to make them, I always end up eating too much and then picking at them throughout the night. Thats where I always have to go hey you delicious carbs I got to leave you alone, I do that I lose weight. It's like I'm a junky I just have to say no..
I also have found that my healthy body prefers 6 to 8 hours of high intensity at a minimum of exercise a week. That ends up being quite a bit but when I am in peak shape I love it. Maintaining that during stressful overfull weeks is a nightmare but I have learned my natural healthy body type requires a lot of maintenance. The moment I am not working hard I gain... my body starts storing fat.... So while its easy for me to drop 20lbs in a snap with just diet and walking to make it count and to get into top shape... I have to work. I do enjoy it and I can see why genetically I have to do that, I come from a line of rugby players, mma fighters, and gymnasts. This means in order to really get my burn going I have to burn and get there.
This is just me and please don't judge me harshly for what my body needs. Believe me, I have ended up in many arguments with a few people online but this is what works for me. When I train I ended up being a little intense for most of the people I knew around me but I found that the professional dancers, performers, and athletes I knew loved to train with me because I could keep up. So now its trying to get back on my groove and bust a move. I have to limit my calorie intake and find my rhythm. Once I do that the lbs fall off. Keep it positive.. Take small gains... and the biggest one everyone falls but we just have to get back up. Never give up, never surrender!
