I am trying to be patient. And not be too overly optimistic. So, what the heck do I mean by that?

I just finished my 17th workout in March. Today was my 5th day this week and my 4th weight training of the week. This week was a "max" for me. I should exceed my cardio-calories burned goal tomorrow (if I didn't blow out my shoulders today doing lateral dumbbell raises).

All of that and I feel like nothing good is happening... No weight loss. Inches? I really don't think so. The last time I checked, I had gained an inch in my neck and my arm. emoticon What is that about? It feels like the workouts are sending me backward in that realm. So, I must be patient and not quit. Because in addition to the "growth" I'm feeling a bit tired.

My actual workouts are going really well. I am working pretty hard. (Is there such thing as too hard?) Sweating, feeling good after. Well enough that I am still going and not making excuses not to go. My exercising feels like personal achievement. And it makes me want to achieve even more. I believe that by the end of this summer, I will be doing some jogging! That is one of my "medium" goals, and I am going to get there. I shouldn't be too optimistic, because it isn't going to just happen. It will take some time, and some patience too. So I can't be so optimistic that I push myself too hard and end up unhealthy (mentally & physically) and disappointed at not "achieving".

So, I'm frustrated and rearing for things to happen. I must keep pushing so that I stick and stay with the process, and not give up before I make a good solid achievement.
