How something cool can be frustrating

Have a heart rate that instantly goes very high when beginning to exercise. Have workouts showing high calorie burns. Be excited about it. Continue to exercise on a regular basis. Begin to feel comfortable with the current workout. Then, constantly begin to burn less and less calories for the same workout. Like… 1/4 less.

Even though I know it is a GOOD thing that my heart isn’t instantly hitting the roof – it means I have to begin exercising more (either length of time or difficulty of workout) to still burn my weekly target.

Now THAT can feel frustrating.

      I would rather try to persuade a man to go along, because once I have persuaded him he will stick. If I scare him, he will stay just as long as he is scared, and then he is gone. -- Dwight D. Eisenhower
