plateau......RRRRRR


Thursday, November 22, 2012

So i have made 0 progress so far this month. I am frustrated plateaus scare me and i am not 100% sure how to fight it. I know i have to change things up. But what and how much...Rrrrr i didnt want to hit a plateau this soon.... I am trying not to get lost.. Or give up. I need to save my life and i know that, i need to be smaller to do that.
Plan- Up frequency of exercise
-Log everything i eat
- journal everyday
- drink green tea everyday

Anyone else have an ideas how to bust out of a plateau? Cause i am sure as heck not happy staying here.

    Add ST to your routine, if you don't already have a regime. Turn up the cardio by 10. Reduce the calories by 100 a day. Just mix things up. Don't change them every day. Find an idea, run with it for at least a week, and see how you are doing.

If you really want to bust through, eliminate sugar! It's hard, but it works!
Just whatever you do, don't give up!! emoticon

    PS - an old quote that came into mind after I posted (may not be written exactly right):

Life is hard by the yard, but a cinch by the inch!

    Hello - Here's a personal experience that you may be able to take something from.

I've been working with a Registered Nutritionist since earlier this year. I plateaued for nearly 3 months before joining SP and I can hear her words to me that I needed to MOVE MORE, MOVE MORE, MOVE MORE. Not easy with health issues I won't go into that prevent me from many 'regular' exercises.

Now that I've started using a Gazelle that I bought used from CraigsList, I am moving more and so are the pounds. Also, I have ordered a 'Peddler' as talked about in an INDYGIRL blog. Blessed to have good treadmill and Scwhinn stationary bike at home, BUT unable to use these at this point.

My Nutritionist was glad to learn of my joining SP. The Nutrition Tracker has enabled me to provide her with information for constructive feedback from her, for example, I had already gotten into my calorie range earlier this year BUT the balance of Carbs/Proteins/Fats was way out of kilter. Work in progress.

She encouraged me to set small, achievable goals that are attainable and not worry about the big number at the end of my goal line. SP reinforces this. A football analogy works here. A team is concentrating on that 10-yard gain with the goal post in mind, but not at the forefront.

    I was on a plateau for 2 months. I did the things you did such as journaling and changed my exercise. Just keep on doing the things like you are now. Do you ever have days where you get off track? Maybe there are too many of those days. Good luck to you, just NEVER give up.
