Been going to the gym religiously since late August: 5 days of cardio a week for 30 minutes a pop. On the 6th day I do strength training, and I rest on the 7th day (like God lol). Despite all my efforts, I've GAINED about 5 lbs since finding my inner Fit Goddess. This is very discouraging since the extra pounds put me into the "Overweight" BMI category
Two friends have commented that I looked really "toned" recently, but I still feel like a cow. On the plus side, my heart rate has come down 10-15 points! (It used to be in tachycardia at rest; I had to wear a heart monitor and get an EKG after my last doctor's appointment). Exercise has also had a major impact on my depression and is something I look forward to every day. I just wish the scale wasn't creeping up.
Guess it's time to cut calories even more.
