Stuck in a rut

Friday, February 25, 2011

For the past two months I cannot seem to lose these last 2 pounds to reach my goal. I even increased the amount of exercise I am doing and no success. I am not giving up and know that one day I will break out of the rut! I am hoping to reach my goal before my one year anniversary in one month emoticon

    No suggestions, Nikki, just saying hang in there. Well, maybe here's a suggestion" Have you looked up any of the Spark articles about the last few pounds or plateaus? Give us a big shout when you break out of your plateau. Russ

    Also, try to vary high intensity with low intensity exercise. That may help you as well.

    Sometimes when you increase exercise you have to increase calories in order to lose! The body goes into a sort of starvation mode and holds onto the fat! So, try staying up at the upper end of your calorie range and see if that helps! I know you will shed those 2 pounds in no time! Good for you reaching your goal within a year! Go for it!

Snow, snow go away

Saturday, February 05, 2011

I have been snowed/iced in for 3 days this week and have found myself making some poor food choices. Luckily I have been able to workout more than usual with all this spare time therefore I haven't gained any weight but I haven't lost any weight either. I am hoping the sun will melt most of the snow and ice today so I can finally get out of the house and get to the grocery store for some healthy treats and snacks :)

    Isn't it amazing as kids we loved snow? Couldn't wait to get out and play in it right? But as adults we hunker down and wish it would go away because it infringes on our lives. I hope you get out soon to hit the store healthy snacks are a must, glad to hear you made the best of it and got in extra workouts to stave off winter weight gain that normally happens when we are forced to stay in. Way to go gorgeous.
