Challenge 3 Day 6

Workout was great today! I used the same weights and reps as Thursday. I'm going to shoot for 10 reps on Monday. The only thing I don't like is the ab workout. I think I'm going to go back to doing the Ab Boot Camp. I'll have to think about it. Or maybe drop abs altogether. My body fat will never be low enough to see the definition there, and my core gets a workout from the other exercises. Maybe some pilates instead of the boot camp. Crap, I don't know.

Food has not been so good. I knew if I joined the challenge on my private board that I'd fall into this trap. I'm afraid to eat because I want to win, and more than that, I just want these last 30 pounds gone. I know that eating so little is not the way to do it. But really, I'm not starving myself - most days I am over 1200 calories. Still, that goes against everything I've learned the last 6 or 7 months about eating - that I don't need a huge deficit to lose weight. I can rationalize and say that the lower calories lately makes up for the lack of cardio, but who am I kidding? Even if I were doing my cardio (which will resume next week), I would probably be just as hesitant to eat. I have to get out of this habit.
