I'm hoping you were saying eat eggs, not drink egg yolk...
Yeah, obviously lol. Not trying to get sick.
I was never one for extreme workouts. (Isn't just being active on a daily basis and eating healthy good enough?)
Anyway, I guess I became more interested in toning my -everything- after getting extremely envious of my bf who's like 160 lbs and 5'7 with no fucking fat on his body (and he eats like a horse, wtf?)
So I want to be lean like him. Problem is, I've never done anything that -made me sore for 4 days- or whatever. I remember in gym class, once, I did 5 push ups and the rest of the week, my arms were in pain, so I'm kind of terrified of ever working out, ever. Still, I gave it a shot.
I've tried keeping up with some workout plans (videos) they suggest doing something a little different every day. I did day 1. Day 2 = I couldn't move. Day 3 = I couldn't move. Day 4 = Okay, I can walk again. Day 7 = Yay! That was a total waste of time because the recovery took so long, that I obviously couldn't keep up with the plan.
I don't want to be a body builder, and I don't want crazy insane muscles. I just want to be slim. But I really can't keep up with a daily routine, especially when I can't fucking move from soreness. Yeah, I know, drink lots of water and eat lots of protein but I've just never... ate much. Eat your breakfast, share lunch with a friend, and give dinner to your neighbor. That is how I was brought up, and I can't stomach a ton of food even if I have been exercising or active all day. The only thing that makes me hungry is swimming, which I can only do in the summer.
The key to keeping up with a daily routine without being too sore is to get through the first two week when you are too sore.
Even if you can barely move, get to the gym or wherever you workout. Do something, even if it's like. Keep yourself sore for two weeks. Make sure you're eating well and all.
Eventually, your body is going to get used to the exercise and that's when muscle is going to start coming in. The initial shock to your system is what's gonna burn a good amount of fat and start the muscle building. I don't really know much about diet for girls, admittedly.
Theoretically, running should make you as hungry, if not hungrier, than swimming. Eating well for all 3 meals is important, but if you can't stomach more food shakes are a good supplement.
You should check bodybuilding.com to check for routines for girls. Not everything on there is for getting insane muscles, so you'll probably find something that works for you.
