Marieann, I was busting at the seems for a long time. I went whole weeks just committed to skirts and dresses. I didn't start seeing a downward trend until the second half of Stage 3.
Okay...thanks for letting me know. Thank goodness it is dress and skirt weather, now. I can see changes in my body but it is so different than when I lost weight doing cardio and low-calorie diet--it's good to be reassured.
I have my first AMRAP's today Stage 1, A. Any advice?
SO looking forward to starting phase 2 after I get back from my road trip next week.
Let's try to change the mindset a little here ladies. Instead of saying, "I was bad." when we don't necessarily follow our diet plans or hit the gym like we want. Stop wearing this stuff as personal failures. You went out and lived your life. There's nothing bad about. All good (or bad) things in moderation. and quit punishing yourselves for being human. When I hear people say, "Oh my God I ate a cookie." I seriously want to reach through my computer and smack you, lovingly. The world will NOT stop turning because you missed a workout or two or because you enjoyed your food over the weekend. Now if you stopped going to the gym all together and ate like a pig every day of your life, then you would have something to worry about.
I love reading this thread, but now I have no time to comment, lol!
KEEP LIFTING HEAVY STUFF EVERYONE!
I'm 2/3 this week. I did good on sleep and I managed 2 lifting sessions plus a 20 min HIIT session.
This week will be bad ladies. I've pretty much resigned myself to just maintaining until July. My Summer is suddenly very busy. I will probably just get a few HIIT workouts this week(out of town) and aim for 100 grams protein daily. Not going to make any promises on cals. Things will calm down soon enough- just gotta keep focused until then!
