I got this exercise thing down to an art. I do 2 hours of spinning a day combined with a 4 hour day Saturday with just one day off. Throw in my 2 bodypump classes I teach and that rounds out my week out pretty well. I will be adding a 1 hour short track skate session this week but that isn't a biggie. I give myself extra breaks when I feel worn down but other than that, I feel great.
Nutrition on the other hand sucks ass. I just CAN'T seem to say no to the foods I like. Even while filling out my food journal and seeing how well I have done, I will reach for a chocolate bar all the while saying "stay away from that"! I feel bipolar most days. It is a serious roadblock for me. I will start my day with oatmeal or bran, water, apple sauce and everything will be going great. I will walk up to the caff for some salad and come back with homefries, bacon and buttery toast. I literally can't help myself. I feel possessed.
I am thinking of going to see a hypnotist. I hear they can help with this kind of mental block. If I can get my food routine to match my workout routine, hell I will be smokin by the summer.
And I am tired of hearing people say "find the balance", "don't deny yourself", "cheat everyday"....blah blah. The only people who say that have 6 pack abs.
No matter what anyone tells you, nutrition is the factor in weight loss that is by far the hardest to conquer.
