I did crossfit for a year and I liked it, but my size never changed. I put a lot of effort into working out and trying to be healthy, but I never reached the point where I had to buy new pants. It was pretty disappointing.
I thought: I know. The last time I dropped size, I was running 5 days a week. I'll just do that.
I really hate running.
When I go to the gym and run (using an elliptical) I usually average about a 7 minute mile and I generally run for 20-25 minutes. It's not that I cannot run - obviously - I just think that it's boring.
I'm trying to regroup and regain some motivation. I'm going to get a new jar of thermogenic powder and I'll make some paleo granola tonight. That should help me out. (Let me just say that I workout first thing in the morning. Planet Fitness, here, opens at 5am and that's when I'm there.)
Exercise That I Like
- Running up and around Powell Butte in Portland, OR
- Lifting & strength training
- Kickboxing & Boxing
I'm terrible with working out at my house. There's always something else that I would rather do at home.
I know I have a handful of readers out there. What motivates you? Can you pass along some encouragement? I think I need it.
