How is everyone? I feel like I know all of you, because I lurk on here so much, but I never post. Everyone is so very inspiring, and I want to thank you for giving me the guts to go on the diet.
Okay. I am a huge exercise fan, but for some reason I am a bit chunky. I run 2-3 miles 5 times a week, and I lift weights. I have not been able to lose any weight---then I found out that I have PCOS, which is inhibiting the whole get skinny goal.
So I started Phase 1 on monday, and already lost three pounds. But I have to work out- if I don't work out every day, I go nuts. I'm an attorney, and I sit at my desk all day, and I just really need that endorphin rush that I get out of running. But I was running last night and I just felt totally pooped. My legs ached, and I couldn't wait for it to be over.
How much exercise should I be doing? Is it more beneficial to just lift weights during Phase 1, especially in light of the amount of protein we're allowed? Has anyone had this problem?
