The Scale is Stuck!
Iím a scale addict there is no doubt about it; I canít help it, I must weigh daily multiple times per day. Iím okay with that; some habits are hard to break. However, my official weigh day is on Mondayís, this is the important day; it really matters what it says because I must record that number in my log. So for the last three weeks the scale has been stuck or broken; it has not budged; it has said the same thing or one pound more for the past three weeks. I guess I should be excited that Iíve not really gained but the fact is Iím working hard and itís not moving.
I am aware of the dreaded plateau and I suspect that is whatís happening now. I set a target to reach by December 31, 2012 and this is putting me off track all of this just in time for the holidays. So what to do now; as of Saturday I have changed my routine; trying to confuse my body; I guess it has adapted to the paces Iíve been putting it through. Iím starting some serious strength training and incorporating some circuit training. Iím hoping that will make a difference; we will just have to see; I will keep you posted. If anyone has any suggestions; my ears are open.
