Staying Power!!!

Saturday, May 29, 2010

What is YOUR tip for staying on track? I have good days. I have bad days. I have in-between days where I am on a plateau and no matter what I do, the scale doesn't move down!!! I have days where I definitely need a mental-health fix. There are so many stories here on SP and varied reasons for success. I guess what I hope to find from you is.....What consistently works for you and is helping YOU to be successful on this journey? I will most definitely appreciate your advice.

    Since I have been sort of on hold lately don't know if I should be giving much advice. I do consistantly drink at least 8 glasses of water, get in 10,000 or more steps a day, and have been on my WiiFitPlus faithfully for 351 days in a row. I do realize my calories are probably not all coming from all the right places. Main thing that works for me is making a deal with myself to do the above tasks.
    Good luck with all your goals.

    I track my food--not just for the calories but the componets like protein, calcium, & fiber to make sure my calories are counting toward the nutrition I need each day. I also do 10 minutes of strength training 6 days a week--lower body, upper body, core, lower body, upper body, core, rest and repaet the next week.

    I'm very good calorie/food wise and average between 1200-1400 but i constantly hit plateaus. I'm finding I need to push the cardio/strength training (as per the experts). For me that means more walking and using my total gym. I think that's the stage of life we are in.
