I have been exercising for 8 weeks although I did pull back on the aerobics I was doing(walking) because I caught the nasty cold/flu thing going around. I had the dreaded sore throat last Saturday, and immediately upped my vitamin D- I didn't avoid the cold part, but seemed to go through each "step" much quicker- I am now just at feeling the junk in my upper chest, and even that is not that bad at all, so Yeah! for vitamin d!
I did keep the weight training-of the two I feel that is the most important to accomplish and after I have done the work out I love how I feel. I am always wondering during of course :)
I lost a total of 10 pounds with the fat fast and I didn't slide back. I haven't lost since going off it- interesting how I did so well on high fat huh? It does mean I think my right direction is to up the fat besides watching my calories. So I have been scouring ideas on how to do that but one thought I had was to eat dinner for my family, but do the three previous meals as the 90% fat and small calories (mini meals).
I have been reading on the internet and many others have discovered the wonder of eating so much fat. I know if you are a high carb/low fat person I am scaring you to death. It's okay I will be fine ;) fat is not the enemy- that message is getting out.
I got a 15 pound dumbbell today for my Lat rows- I am so excited to be getting up in my weights. I also have sent for some ankle weights- adjustable ones sort of like my sister's.
I have six days of work in a row in front of me, and then a nice long weekend. I still like how this seems to be clearing out my brain fog. I will do a bit more walking this week as my energy allows.
Lesson learned: You can rest when you need to and it is okay
