Plateau Busting

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

I worked out with my trainer today. After measurements I found out I'd only lost an inch in a month of working out almost every day and tracking every bite of food. According to my body media band I've had an 800-1600 calorie deficit every day and the results? Nada. I had hoped that at least I'd have lost inches even though the pounds are not exactly falling off. An inch is an inch I guess but so disappointing.

My trainer is awesome though. She changed my workout to something entirely different than I've been doing. It's true I've been concentrating on HIT training and other resistance training with just Zumba or Latin dance class once a week. So now more cardio. I really hope this works. I think if I stand on the scale and see the same number much longer I'm going to shoot the thing!

    Hang in there. Are you feeling more energy? Do the clothes look/feel better? These things count, too!!

    Don't let discouragement take hold of you--I'm sure there has been some non-scale victories too, like endurance and strength improvement.

It's great that your trainer is changing things up for you, though. Just keep doing the right things--no matter what--because you know that doing otherwise will only take you backwards!

    I was in a plateau for 4 months. I was doing intense cardio, like you, daily 2-3 hours a day for months and months and my body got adjusted. I stopped all cardio and started walking. I broke my plateau and now can walk 10 miles everyday. Still dropping 2-3 pounds a week! So, if the HIT doesn't work, switch to Low intensity!

    Boy can I relate. It is so frustrating when this happens, but know that you are doing good things for your body and health. This will pay off whether you lose all the weight you want or not. Keep up the good work and stay strong. You can do it. : )
