Confessions of a Plateaued Sparker
Saturday, December 08, 2012
It's been over a month since my last blog. I guess I've been a bit discouraged because I have really plateaued on my weight. And it's not one of those plateaus where you have been doing everything right and the weight still won't come off - no, it's because I have been eating too much.
I cut myself some slack for Thanksgiving, and of course now there are numerous Christmas gatherings to face. I really don't want to be too strict with myself at this time of year. However, I am still overeating on just normal days. Why??? I had really been doing well on not overeating i the evening, just a small snack as my calorie "budget" allowed, and then made myself stop. But lately, it's been cheat, cheat, cheat in the evenings! It needs to STOP.
I've been keeping up well on my walking, going further every week. I really need to start adding some strength training, but so far I don't have any motivation to do so. Maybe after Christmas...
So that is my confession. I need some motivation to change before the scale starts going UP.
