STUCK at 5.5lbs

Monday, April 01, 2013

I am still stuck at 5.5 lbs lost, the scale has only changed ounces in the last three weeks. I just don't get it, I did ALOT more walking that usual this past week, watched everything I ate, made smarter choices, and yet, I only lost 5 ounces.

So this week, I am pushing myself more.
I set 6 goals for the week

*Walk 12,500 steps per day
*Avoid ALL GREASY foods
*Walk/jog at least 6 miles this week
*Do 200 crunches per day
*Do 25 Push ups per day
*DO NOT take the Elevator at work

So far for day one, I have walked 7,835 steps (I walked the three miles to work) and I took the stairs) I will do the crunches and push ups tonight before my shower and after dinner.

I also am doing a cleanse. My job sells a product called the 7 Day Body Cleanse. Its an all natural liquid cleanse. You add it to 32 oz of water and drink on it all day long. Its supposed to rid your body of toxins on the inside. I will also be doing a detox bath tonight after my workout to rid the skin of toxins.

My hope this week is to loose at least 2 lbs.

    Hey girl! You are doing great. Don't be so hard on yourself. I agree with DARJR50 it sounds like you've hit a plateau, and I think nutrition is the key. I checked out your nutrition tracker, do you track everything you eat? There are some days when you track less than 600 calories. Is this accurate? If so, the key may be eating more!

    You have hit a plateau. Try changing up your diet in amount and types of foods. Also try changing the types of exercises you do. Plateaus are normal and you will break out of it.
