Day 239: Take a good, hard look
Wednesday, February 13, 2013
Well, guys, last night's weigh-in was as crappy as I expected.
After one month away from the Club I've maintained. Yep. No loss. No gain. Just sat flat.
I'm going to take one second to complain. I don't understand how I can not lose any weight when I literally track everything that goes into my mouth 12 out of 14 days a week. I read labels. I consider what I have budgeted. I keep within my ranges. More than that, if the BodyMedia armband is to be believed I burn, on average, 2500 calories a day. Even if I eat 2000 calories a day that's STILL a deficit (and I'm not eating 2000)...
I did get a fantastic piece of thought last night.
I already know what I need to do in order to be successful.
In fact, I already have mealplans.
I think it also comes down to getting more -daily- activity minutes. Maybe 90 minutes in one day isn't enough to make up for fifteen on another? So, the plan is two-fold.
First, I'm going to look at my three most successful weeks during the first six months and I'm going to 1) make a shopping guide out of them and 2) see what my minutes were. I was doing less in terms of distance then; but, I was also doing more in terms of days. So, this will give me a target. It may turn out that I just have to do short runs every single day of the week with a long day on the weekends to keep my mileage up.
I'll let you guys know what my plans are :)
Alright, time to get some real work done.
Hope you guys have had a better month than I have!
