I just got back from the gym. For those of you keeping track, this is my second time, and 5th time doing some sort of exercise since I started my diet almost 3 weeks ago. I haven't left ketosis where I'm burning fat instead of carbos, but I have started upping my daily alotment a bit (I have a low-carb yogurt now). I'm sorta stuck at 98kg/216lbs, but that's okay, I feel good. Though I did do a little too much tonight and I feel it.
It dawned on me today that I really don't have the slightest clue what I'm doing in a workout room. I know how to run. But lift weights? What's a good routine? I'm sorta following the routine that I can remember from high school track and the boards on the wall, but like the Atkins, it would be MUCH better if I had an educated plan to follow. I'll have to do some research.
Even though this whole weight loss thing is a drag, it's nice to know you're not alone. Sam Gentile's recent non-techy post was a good example. He lost 40lbs in six months! Yeah! Go Sam! However, he's reached a plateau it seems, and he's getting frustrated. Don't quit Sam! Change your routine a bit and you'll be back on track! 10 months, man, I hope I have the power of will to go 10 weeks... you're doing awesome, especially since it's so slow lately. Keep it up, you're changing your lifestyle, right? That takes time. It took how many years to gain all that weight, it'll take a few to lose them too... (that's my theory at least).
P.S. You'll notice just above that post from Sam is another about his son Jonathan - the most wired 4 year old in his kindergarten class! Yeah!
