Totes magotes

I worked on back, biceps, and cardio today. Awesome workout again with R. I'm feeling pleasure pain from yesterday,too but it's definitely worth it. Totes magotes. (Lol! I love the commercial! I'll admit I had to google that phrase though)

So I saw the scale at the gym. Uh.... I was curious but didn't have the nerve to get on it. I know it's just a number on the scale and that physical,not numerical, changes are more important-- but I dread seeing my weight. Argh! Maybe next time.

Hi guys! It's nice to be here. Looking forward to a whole new excitement of learning about health and wellness. Also, I would like to share recommendations, my opinions and stuff that could help anyone out here. ;-)

My exercise today

I walked my dogs today. Maybe only a quarter mile :( I need to get back into jogging, but I can't seem to get motivated. Ideally, I would love to run for 15 minutes every morning, but part of the problem is waking up.

How do you motivate yourselves?

I also enjoy yoga. :)

I need to quit smoking.. I've been smoking cigarettes for three and a half years. I'm only fifteen! I know
cold-turkey is the best way, but should I avoid smoking as much as I possibly can? It makes
me feel terrible that I will still be smoking like, atleast a cigarette a day. I need to QUIT

Hi guys, new here! I'm having a lot of trouble losing weight, despite my best efforts - if this isn't the best community for that, please point me in the right direction! Thanks. :)

So, I began my new fitness program at my gym around January 12. I see my trainer two times a week, and exercise almost every day - weight training and cardio both, usually. They also gave me a "meal plan" they want me to follow that seems to involve a very small amount of actual food, which I refuse to try because it reminds me too much of a starvation diet. I'm almost ready to give in, though.

I have eliminated all fast food and processed food from my diet, as well as soda and most sugar. I'm now eating 4-6 times a day, usually small, healthy, balanced meals and snacks.

My body fat has gone down slightly since I started, but as a whole, I can't lose weight! I completely dumbstruck and at a loss. I've been working my butt off nearly every day for over three weeks, and nothing. I've lost maybe 3 pounds by the scale and a couple inches off my tummy, but with how hard I'm working, I've been told I should have lost 10 or more pounds by now.

I'm also taking a metabolism-boosting supplement, since my metabolism has always been very slow (considering my old diet and the fact that I never exercised). I'm frustrated to the point of tears and am exhausted after working out every day.

Does anyone have any idea what I could be doing wrong? Thanks SO much. I'm desperate.
