During the Thanksgiving/Christmas holiday, I ate very well. Even new years and V-day I was on point. I even manage to lose some weight during this time. But for the most part since 01/12 until now Ive fluctuated between 126 through 128 (the goal is 120). I just can't seem to get these last few pounds off.
I even managed to go low carb for Feb but all that did was for me to end up eating so much more calories than i should have and I did not lose any weight. I work out about 4 to 5 times a week and about once or twice a week I workout for 2 hours at the gym. I don't want to give up because I have everything in me to make this happen but I just don't know where I am going wrong.
Today was not a good day, i mean for the most part I am happy and content but today I felt the pressures of school, friends/family work and gym and I ended up having a chocolate donut and a BIG piece of chocolate cake (st Patrickís day at work). This is so unlike me to give in like this.
I know there are some areas that I can improve on, like getting more sleep, drinking water (I only drink about a bottle a day, YEAH! I know horrible). I guess I could try working out 6 times a week and maybe do 3 days a week i workout for 2 hours; maybe i should just focus more on strength training? I've doing Pilates twice a week maybe during that time I could use it to do something else. I mean is not like Pilates is going to help me burn that much calories. I do a lot of spin so my body could be gettin too use that.
I am a results kind of person and after that cake and donut I just ate, I think I need to start working on solutions. I am going to stay off the scale for two weeks, I am going to put a pause on Pilates and do more strength training, I am going to aim to drink more water and I may start upping my carbs just a bit more (and introduce more variety in food). I will see if I can make it to the gym 5 times a week more consistently.
Any suggestions PLEASE let me know. I need ideas. I think Iíve been stuck on the same thing every day so evolving so I need to switch things up a bit.
