Plateaus...."Frustra
ted, BUT I will not let this get to me!!!"

Thursday, March 22, 2012

I am really getting tired of these weight plateaus!! but I guess over 48 years your body will develop comfort zones of weight where you have been before and want to hang around. Maybe I wouldn't be frustrated if it wasn't so near a goal of getting under 200lbs...and finally being in onederland again!!! I refuse to let this get to me and send me spinning out of control, so I need to come up with a plan.

My mind is saying.."OK..let's start at the beginning of next week with this new plan"..but WHY wait until then when I can start NOW!!! It's amazing how old habits of 'waiting' to do something keeps creeping back in to my thought process. Looking over my fitness workouts, I need to be more consistent. I have been all over the place of doing/not doing cardio/strength training and not having a plan for each week is not a good for me. I have been noticing that my intensity level is not high enough...I haven't been 'worn out' after working out sometimes....sweating,but not worn out!! there is a difference!!!

My "EXCUSES" lately have been family visits, birthday and weather...that have put my schedule out of wack..but I sure have found the time to watch TV and be on the computer!!!

So...here is what I am going to work on this coming week (yes..even starting today)...

1. MORE WATER!! I know I haven't been drinking enough...
GOAL: at least 12 - 8oz glasses a day (96oz)

2. CARDIO: AT least...60mins/day on days off from work (can be split up throughout day), 20-30mins/day on days I work.... INTENSITY: Need to do more interval training with MORE intensity at higher level..

3. STRENGTH TRAINING: AT least every other day working different upper/lower body parts...

4. EAT MORE FRUITS / VEGETABLES!!!: At least 5 a day...

5. If the weather holds out...be adventurous and try new walking paths...there are so many in my area I haven't tried!!!


Ok...I am ready to get this rolling!!! I want to get to ONEDERLAND!!!!!!

    Sound as if you have a good plan , have you tried putting a firness ball or hand weights on the floor in front of the TV ? This helps at times they are there just looking at me . I KNOW THAT YOU CAN DO IT !!

    Yeah, it blows doesn't it? Your body is changing in ways you can't see or measure, but the changes are happening and will be measurable.

    wow.. I soooo hear you on this!

    My "stall" has officially been since Oct 2011. Up and down from 205 to 201... I haven't been on a wild eating spree, or slacked in exercise... just haven't been able to MOVE.

    FYI - I will be 47 in April... so maybe it IS an age thingy? BUT... hope.. on the horizon...

    I have read that sleeping properly could be part of the equation... do you sleep well? I used to average only 4-6 hours a night.. now I'm averaging 7-9 so I am hoping this will help.

    Can't wait to hear you broke 200! Keep up the good work!
