Breaking the plateau!


Saturday, August 07, 2010

Apparently I did something right, because I'm down to 79.4 kg (175 lbs) as of today! If I'm being honest, of the things I changed this week, the ones I changed the most were my strength training and my eating habits. Doing my strength training in blocks and eating what felt like ALL THE TIME apparently was enough, since I am not good at going to bed earlier! I don't doubt that the switch to a different cardio schedule helped too (harder day-easier day alternation), but I haven't been doing it long enough to be sure.

I'm going to keep up with a lot of the goals I set for breaking the plateau, because they're just good exercise and eating habits, but realistically I'm giving up on trying to go to bed earlier - I'm going back to trying for consistency on that! I actually love my new exercise schedule, which keeps me from overdoing it and gives more rest time while making sure I still work hard.

I won't feel 100% sure I'm over the plateau until the weekend is over and I'm not back at 80 kg (argh! I hope not!), but going down 0.8 kg (1.75 lbs) in a day is something that never happened before the plateau kicked in, so hopefully this is the beginning of the way down again!

    the best thing to get out of a plateau is more strength training( with resistance too) and less cardio...it works every time....so good for you for adding the ST...
awesome!

RUN RUN RUN!!
