Ready for a Change
I find that maintaining muscle does slow down weight loss. Through exercise I'm trying to keep all the muscle I have and am trying not to lose too much. I want to be firm, not just skinny. It is really frustrating with the scale though
Socializing whilst dieting is very hard :/ For me its the alcohol thats the worst. I limit myself to only drinking once a month because for me the calories just aren't worth it. Maybe when it comes to take away you could make a rule that you only eat it once a week? I used to eat out a lot, and I find by slowly phasing it out(like pizza only once per week, thai every other week act) I saw quicker progress and eventually stopped craving those foods as much. Instead for socializing through drinking or eating out, now I like to cook healthy dinners with people, go to farmers markets, take walks, go hiking act I try to not make it as much about food
Good luck with finding a good balance for yourself!
Soooo....I'm in this cool 20 day hardcore challenge and its forcing me to stick to my strength training workout
Also making me stick to calories better. I have a question for you guys.....do you go over your allotted calories for the day if you're really really hungry? Or do you just suck it up?
So here was today's workout:
50 bicycle men
50 sit ups
50 leg ups
50 reverse crunches
65 leg raises
120 sec plank
Also probably will end up going for a walk, since I'm visiting the bf and walking is like our favorite thing to do
