Since August i've been bouncing the same 4lbs back and forth. And i KNOW what it is and i say it all the time:
Regardless of the amount of exercise you complete, if you still eat crap, you won't lose the weight.
I eat crap! It's the truth. During my 5 day Staycation i ate cheese burgers, cheese fries, pizza, french toast, loads of buttery bread, soda, donuts, muffins, brownies...the list can go on. The entire time i kept telling myself, "You're gonna regret it!" But did i listen? NOPE! I ate...and ate some more.
I do this to myself whenever i start to really drop the weight. I still work my butt off, but i shovel the wrong foods into my mouth. And i do it all in private. I have some close friends that know i'm working out and i know they wonder why i'm not dropping the weight faster...it's because i eat like crazy in private...but it's not as if they can't guess what i'm doing. I mean, if i eat right in front of them and i'm working out i should be losing the weight. BUT since i'm not it does not take a genius to realize that i'm doing something wrong in private. grrrrrr...
So today...started today i am logging all my foods and drinks and i will stay within my calorie range. I've also mapped out my fitness for the week. I will succeed. I know what to do and i have all the tools to reach my goals.
