Last night was my 2nd night at the gym. I ran 1.5 straight miles at 4.2 mph. I finished with a half mile walk and 5 minutes on the elliptical. Where did this come from? Saturday I walked for 30 minutes and about died. I haven't ran in years. My legs became numb and I felt no pain, I just ran. I ran for an entire mile and a half. Thank you motivation fairy for tapping my shoulder with your magical wand. Come again?
I stress over the amount of exercise needed and daily caloric goal to achieve. My nutritionist tells me one thing, the internet another. I know if one don't get enough calories, loss can stop. Currently I am getting 700-1000; is that normal? As for exercise, is it 5 days, thirty-minute workouts? Or 3 days, 1 hour workouts? Do I need to go everyday? I'm over-analyzing everything because I just want to get it right. The band is doing everything it's supposed to do for me; I want to make sure I hold up my end of the deal.
