So, I chatted with a trainer. She wanted to know everything about my diet, habits, sleeping, drinking, running...everything. Two words. Resistance training. She said you "can lose weight with only cardio, but it is much slower and you probably won't like your body too much". So I asked her about the 30 Day Shred (by Jillian Michaels) ...she said that would be perfect! So...I shredded, twice. It was hard, yes, but did not kill me. I'm ok with that. Oh, and this resistance training goes along with my running.
So, after much thinking, and for the first time - EVER...I'm going to take my measurements and track my changes in actual places on my body. Maybe taking some focus off the scale? I'm thinking as much as I'd love a 2 pound loss, I'd be pretty freaking stoked to see my measurements shrinking. Do you track your measurements? Why or why not? Should I? Should you?
