I'm in a weight-loss plateau. Since August. I started running a lot in May 2012 because I realized I'd accidentally lost weight by restricting my diet. I had a thesis to write, 3 jobs, school, and just not enough time to eat as much as I used to. So I started running to keep going and lost 10 pounds in a couple months. Since then, I'm not as busy and winter has ensured that I go to the gym instead of run. So although my body is tighter, I haven't dropped a pound. I want to lose 10 pounds and keep it off, and then I'll happily stay at that weight (135) forever.
So this blog post is me officially committing to the 4 week program plateau-busting program with sparkpeople. And with that said, I'm going to be sure to get in my 8 glasses of water. I'll eat either Cheerios or grits for breakfast. And if I must eat bread, then one piece per day.
Confession - it's easier for me to keep exercising when I'm in a relationship. Is this the case with other people? Plus, in the winter, no one's going to see my body, especially since I'm single now.
