Frustrated

Thursday, July 12, 2018

I don't get it. I've been doing everything right and I'm not seeing results.

I track my food. My doctor told me to consume 1200 calories a day. I've been staying within my margins for months now and it's doing nothing for me. I feel better, yes, but my body is not changing.

I do 25 minutes of cardio at least 4 times a week followed by weights on a targeted body part. I rotate with legs, arms, back/shoulder, and abs. I'm no fitness expert, but I should be seeing something, right? I use the tread mill and jog a mile and walk uphill half a mile which usually takes me around 25 minutes. My heart rate gets up to the 160's to 170's. Why is the fat not disappearing?

I eat a cup of raw vegetables before my meals. I avoid eating out. I eat protein and vegetables. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?

I wake up at 4:30 am 4 or 5 days a week to go to the gym .Even on my off days, I'm not just sitting around. I'm working outside or cleaning the house.

I rarely "cheat," and when I do, it's within reason. I might have a piece of pizza or ice cream, but I watch the portions and I plan for it.

I do not understand why my body is not changing. Help.

    You might try focusing on some other concrete aspect of your program for a few weeks eg number of push-ups, minutes at goal heart rate, number of reps with your weight training, or miles walked. Push the envelope there as you are able and take note of your progress. Sometimes the transformation happens when you're doing other supportive things.
