But, I am learning, although I went into PT wanting it to be the end all and be all of my weight loss journey, it's not. I still need to work my butt off at home, when I eat, in the gym, and to avoid temptation AND just practicing healthy habits overall (like getting enough sleep).
I feel like I am constantly researching diets and reading success stories just wondering/praying for that to be me one day. And although I do kick some serious butt in the gym when I go, I am not consistent. I like to think I am, but I am not. On April 18th, 2012, it will be exactly a year of me trying to lose weight and I have only lost about 10lbs. I know I can do better than that.
Today in my PT session, we took my measurements and talked about what I need to do to see some more drastic results. I can't live my life feeling the way I do about my appearance.. something needs to give. The conversation went a little like this.
Me: What do I need to do to start seeing some results?
Reggie: You don't feel like you are seeing results yet?
Me: No! And please don't tell me to do the lemonade diet. I don't have the discipline for that?
Reggie: Yea, okay... you come to the gym at 6am, 4 days a week. And you are telling me that's not discipline?
And this really made me think. I do have discipline, when I feel like it. I just need to work on applying it. A craving for nachos should not overpower my desire to reach my goals. So, Reggie suggested that I try a veggie and protein at every meal regime; basically Atkins,which I just looked into last night during class when I wasn't paying attention to the lecture. I know that low carbs will knock of the lbs. It always does.
I just need to apply my discipline to my diet AND exercise regime.
I know when you are starting a new regime you should start right away, there is not use in waiting for Monday. But I am overworked and exhausted AND nobody can make me get to the grocery store to shop properly before Sunday afternoon when I wake up from a coma-like sleep I plan on having. SO, Monday it is.
