My caloric and exercise intervention

Saturday, June 25, 2011

I'm trying to get to the bottom of why my scale hasn't budged.

Well, I KNOW why it's been teetering around the 189-190 mark for 2 months now. I'm not going to lie and say that I've done everything exactly to the letter. I tend to have an ALL or NOTHING approach which in some ways can be a great thing. In other ways it can be a huge hinderance. I've figured out how to maintain. Period. Not gaining, just being complacent.

Here's the scenario...

Three months in.

Has this happened to you? The pounds are dropping, the inches are coming off and you no longer get thigh burn. (Don't act like you don't know that your thighs are near their combustion point with all that rubbing going on!)

Things are toning up and shifting into new places as they should be. Then BLAM...you get all cocky. (Again, I know I'm not the only one fitting into my skinty jeans and then the weight loss journey comes to a complete screeching halt.)

How does one break the chains of stagnicity? (Google it, I'm sure it's a word) I'm stagnant. I don't want to be. I truly WANT to move forward. I WANT to finish this. I WANT to be successful. I'm trying to make my mind catch up with what my body wants to do.

Throw me a message like, "What exercises have you done today?" If I haven't done something I may just do some squats before replying so that I'm not lying. That's one thing I don't do. I'm honest. Unless I'm super ill, I will always at least make an attempt.

So, here I go. Let me burn some goo. It's on and poppin'!

    Hey partner....we are fighting with the EXACT same weight!!!! This is GREAT-we WILL win this fight together-WE WILL! I had a terrible day today, nutrition wise that is. I used up my days worth of calories by 12:15! I've eaten 4 cucumbers since and had convinced myself I was slowly starving to death lol. WE GOT THIS GIRL! You inspired me to go for another run. I will check back with you later tonight to see what exercise YOU have done!!!!

    Great Blog!!
    Awesome pic!!

    OK that's all the fluff.....now get to moving!! emoticon

    When I get stagnant, I make sure to log every crumb of food that passes my lips. I also try to juggle my calorie values...low one day close to the limit the next. Sometimes that seems to help.

    Oh girl, you are SO not alone! I fight with this crap DAILY. I especially know about the cocky attitude. That's why I'm starting over. Again. I have to keep reminding myself not to get cocky, because it will send the whole ball of yarn unraveling.

    Everything you said, I can relate to. I think the trick is not to get ahead of ourselves and pace ourselves and not get cocky! Stupid ego. Sheesh.

    You can SO do this. And feel free to shoot me a message asking me if I've gotten off the computer to do my circuits.

    Sometimes, it's the only way! Let's hold each other accountable! I'll feel stupid if you ask and I haven't done it!

    We got this!

    Oh yes, I've been stagnant for a long time and many times- it's sad. I'm loving TBL challenge; the extra support is great. And knowing that my partner is depending on me gets me moving and thinking about what I put in my mouth!
    I hope you are joining the challenge! Good luck!
