I’ve heard that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results. Have you ever found yourself in this cycle? We are creatures of habit and creatures who seek comfort. Both lend themselves to a path of routine.
My exercise routine had become just that, a routine. Lately, I haven’t been getting the results I had hoped for. I’ve been working really hard but the weight isn’t coming off. After talking to a few experts in exercise, I decided it was time to change up the routine. I’ve had good results but it was time to move on to something a little different, something a little outside my comfort zone….something exhausting. I can’t expect the same results I received early on by doing the same thing over and over.
INTERVALS ... it’s a dirty word to me. But it is working. After dropping 4 pounds in three days, I think I’ve escaped exercise insanity, at least until my body adjusts and I’ll have to shock it with a new routine. But I’ll be watching out for that.
