I'm pretty sure my weight is significantly up - stupid 6 weeks vacation. But I get back today, so hopefully I'll be seeing results soon. Eep. Great to hear you're making progress! Slow and steady. :)Also, I agree. The dreadmill is the worst.
I guess I just wonder...what did you expect in terms of the schedule? It's med school!
I get that haha I expected it to be the worst experience of my life but expecting and actually living it are two different animals. Aside from working the past year, I wasn't all that busy so my time management skills suffered a lot.
You should try running on the Monon. You can run around Broad Ripple and Carmel. I like to start at 96th street and run to the Palladium and back. (6 miles). I always feel comfortable running on the Monon by myself. Especially early Saturday morning, there are a TON of people out. The Broad Ripple canal is also amazing! It has this crushed limestone surface, so it's really soft. I would never run on there alone though. Eagle Creek park is awesome, but it's $5 to get in. They have marked paths for 5k, 7k, 8k and 10k. If you ever need someone to run with, let me know! I'd be happy to!
Getting back into a routine when studying is not the same as when working, like you say there is all the extra studying to do in the evening, and it's hard. But you'll get there because its the first week and you're already trying to establish it, which is more than I've ever managed in the first week, so well done!
I'd take a weight gain in exchange for a 6 week vacation!
Slow and steady wins the weight loss race! Now that you've added med school to the mix it'll be more difficult because of the hours or stress. Just keep doing something.
And to think some people have gone through med school while taking care of a family! crazy huh.
I hate the treadmill too!! Actually I hate an outdoor track also. The treadmill feels like a hamster wheel and an outdoor track feels like I'm walking/jogging in circles -oh wait, I am. I like having a destination. I like to keep the scenery new and fresh. I would prefer walking in a neighborhood, a park, or I even sometimes walk in our local cemetary. Just so I'm not forced to walk in circles. I get way too bored with that.... Congrats on the loss!
Good luck with your Dietbet! Nothing better than getting PAID for reaching your goals! Glad to hear you're getting in your workouts right after class & sticking with meal prep! Everything is easier with planning and structure! You go girl!!AlexAlexInPhilly.wordpress
my progress has been so slow lately too, drives me crazy. and i also hate the treadmill, such a drag!
-1.2 is a great loss! I agree that the treadmill sucks, but I found one way to make treadmill workouts a little easier to get through. I actually listen to books on tape if I have to run on the treadmill. That way,I focus more on the story than the dull monotony of the dreadmill. It may not be your thing, but it sure works for me!
I can't do the treadmill to save my life!! I am slowly getting back into running and can do a very slow four miles outside now, but I literally can't stand five min on the treadmill!
I feel you with treadmills. I get bored easily. I can't take it even for just 3miles. Outdoor on the roads/trails are more fun.
I don't know what I'm going to do when it gets too cold to run outside!!!
So true! Every minute creeps by on the treadmilll - I just LOVE being outdoors. So much better!
Thanks, Ashley! I might be start listening to my school lectures when I run but I don't think that's going to make me feel any better about the treadmill. ugh.
ugh. I had the 8am- 5pm EVERYDAY last semester. It sucked. SOOOOO MUCH. I feel for ya chica!
