I have been super stressed again! Not losing any weight, no measurements changing, and hanging at 4-5 pounds up from my lowest. I don't know what to do to make the weight start moving again so I can get to my goal. My fitness level is improving and it should be for all the time I have been spending at the gym!
So today, I went to the gym and ran 4 miles straight through! Up until today I had only done 3.1miles and never went beyond that. I feel proud of myself!
I had the retired local football coach asking if I am a runner, if I run marathons, and even told me I need to run some races. I must have impressed him, which means a lot to me since I was never athletic in high school or grade school and did not play any sports.
-Take my running out on the road
-Keep increasing my distance
-Increase my speed
-Track all my food accurately
-Sign up for my first 5K
Hopefully all of the above will help the weight start moving again. I've never experienced all of these constant and persistent plateaus. I'm hoping once my stress alleviates that it will just fall off. It has to pay off eventually right?
I can't seem to find anyone to run a race with me. I would like to do a mud run in June, and it is not a difficult one, you can skip the obstacles, it's mostly for fun and for a good cause. I still can't seem to find anyone interested. I don't want to do my first race alone, but I think I will have to buck up and do it! Just like I learned that I had to workout on my own because no one was gonna do it with me, and commit to it.
Excuse my rambling.. my thoughts just spewed onto here.
