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'!
