Ive been feeling great about my progress until just recently. Its been weeks since my last weight loss, and Im so frustrated! My clothes are fitting the same. I went through my spring clothes that I put away for the winter time and they dont feel baggy or anything. They still feel small in all the same places as when I packed them away last year WTF!?!? I feel like I keep trying new things at the gym and new challenging workouts, however still no change. With the onset of spring weather I have had my first outdoor run of the year and felt pretty good about it, although it sure was tough.
As far as diet goes, I cook almost all of my meals at home, and if/when I eat out (less than 2x week) I choose the healthy options. i.e. omitting cheese and dressing on my sub, choosing a lean protein/veggie dinner. I have started tracking my food again, I feel like I tend to sneak things, albeit healthy sneaks, I may be taking in too many calories. I have got to get the peanut butter out of the house!
I also need to take advantage of the group fitness classes offered at my gym. The costs are already factored into my dues so I am basically paying for them anyway, I need to get my butt in gear and get to one. I have done yoga before because I love it, and while its good for strength and flexibility, Im looking for a calorie burn!
Currently I work out about three - four times a week, I am now once again closely monitoring my intake of calories, water, sodium, etc. What else can I be doing? I hear good things about zumba, spinning, etc. I also would love to try the pool... Any suggestions, tips??
