THOUGHTS - thank you!
Ok - thanks so much for all of the tips on what to do! Strength training - definitely. And eating more - maybe? I feel like it all comes down to genetics? Body type? I'm reading all of these blogs and wondering how people eat SO much and stay fit. It is all healthy stuff - I'm wondering about the genetics involved. My parents are both overweight, but this is due to years of not working out and eating whatever, whenever. I feel like I have a bad metabolism going for me nonetheless.
I've always stayed on the lower end of the calories, even after seeing the nutritionist last year (she told me to eat 2700 when pregnant and nursing). I was around 1800-2000 when pregnant and gained in the lower end of the suggested weight gain and felt great! I lost weight in college by eating 1100 (problem!) and was down to 121 lbs but was not eating enough - not healthy! Maybe my metabolism is all slow now from that still (7 years ago?) I feel like I have been eating whenever hungry and still around 2200- 2500 and gaining weight. So I think that I need to cut them? Saturday and Sunday were throw in the towel days - did not count. Today I had alot of carbs!
Tell me more - what do you do? Is there an online workout that you follow? I used to have books and a routine but I get bored sooo quickly! I had been doing Jillian 3 times a week - stopped last week after wrist surgery - hopefully resume next week. But - that is really circuit training. What do you suggest??
THANK YOU for all of your help!
