I am so very frustrated with plateau I seem to be stuck at.
I know right now I should simply be happy if I donít climb till after the New Year. With the Holidayís looming I have more than enough to worry about just keeping up.
Work stress isnít going to help either.
However I have been stuck wavering between 179-182 for way too long. (almost 3 months)
This past weekend was thanksgiving, and I managed to hang in there around 179.5.
Now the last couple of days I have been working out and eating reasonably and here I am sitting again at 181. I realize that these little fluctuations mean very little in the long term, but I can honestly make no rhyme or reason out of them.
I am glad I have had no significant re-gain so far but honestly I wanted to be a little further Before the season set in. Itís been at least 3 months since I have seen any real changes.
I know it means I will have to change something. I have intensified my workouts slightly but no real change has resulted. (to be fair it is keeping be from packing it back on because I know I have been eating more)
I just really need to calm down though and focus on maintaining where I am at. If I try to push past I will get way to frustrated. I know this. I will give up. I canít let that happen. So I guess the point of this rambling is how do I make myself just take a deep breath and not stress myself out about it?
I am not a patient person for the record.
Let me try for some Yes therapy.
Yes. I have been here for awhile, but it is better than where I was BEFORE.
Yes it looks like I may be ďhereĒ for a while long.
Yes I can maintain it for the Holidays.
Yes, I can somehow break past this wall at some point and keep going.
Yes I will reach my goals.
Yes I will commit to being healthy for the rest of my life.
