Motivation Monday?

Monday, February 25, 2013

I'm having some trouble with the motivation part of my Monday. I had my best week ever last week. I stayed within my nutritional ranges almost every day, going over just twice this weekend and only by a little. I exceeded my fitness goals for the week. I got up early Saturday morning to do the laundry and clean the house so that I could enjoy the rest of the weekend and I made this possible by keeping the place nice during the proceeding week.

With all this in mind, and after my disappointing weigh-in last Wednesday, I decided to sneak a peek at the scale this morning.

And.....

Nothing.

I didn't even lose the couple pounds I gained over Valentine's weekend.

What am I doing wrong?

It's much too early in the game to have hit a plateau. Last time I really tried to lose weight I didn't hit a plateau until around the 30 pound mark.

I'm very frustrated today. Add that to a stressful day at work and this is a really sucky Monday. I still ate well today and completed my daily checklist, but I'm just in a funk right now.

    aww I'm so sorry. It is the worst when your hard work doesn't show! Definitely a motivation killer. Could you have put on some muscle? Have you done any measurements and if so do they reflect progress?

    It sounds like you are doing fantastic and I am in awe of you for doing the saturday morning chores so you can enjoy the weekend. I would love to do that but somehow it remains an unachievable dream!

    Of course it's possible you've been putting on muscle weight and this coming week you'll see the pounds flying off as the muscle chews through the fat.

    Keep it up!
