80% Diet, 20% Exercise

This is basically how I feel right now.  I’m in a groove with my diet and workout regimen.  I’m feeling great.  I’m looking forward to my shakes and my 600 calorie dinners.  I feel so in control.  I was talking to Jay last night and was saying that it’s so funny how in a week on Isagenix I have lost 5 lbs barely working out but through a two month weight loss challenge at my gym when I was working out 6 days a week I lost 2 lbs.  80% Diet, 20% Exercise anyone?? Yup I am a real life walking testimony to that nice little stat.  So last night I bought a Polar Heart Rate Monitor which I’m very excited about using in my workouts next week.  Since I”m doing more weight training it’s driving me crazy that I don’t have my calorie count from the treadmill and elliptical (which still is probably inaccurate).  So I caved and bought one.  I’ll have to let you know next week if i like it!

    This is basically how i do it. but, the reason you felt you lost less weight while working out a lot is because you had more muscle. muscle is heavier then fat. so you may have felt like you were slowing down, but i bet you looked a bit more lean.

      I did look more lean but I am a former college athlete with a lot of muscle and gaining muscle isn’t my goal right now. It’s losing the fat that’s covering it up 😉

    The quality of your “fuel” is the quality of your workout – so I’d definitely agree, nutrition plays a bigger part than exercise. You’ll LOVE your Polar. I haven’t worked out without mine in six years (I’ve gone through 3 different ones). It gives you a totally different perspective as to how hard you are actually working.

      I’m super excited to be able to push myself harder during workouts when I’m able to monitor calories burned!

      Absolutely, I have a link to some information on my page in the Isagenix tab. I’m on day 8 and I’m loving it. Look forward to drinking the shakes every day.
