"Daily Community Task

Write a blog about your plateau. How long have you been stuck in a plateau? What have you done so far to try and overcome it? Within your blog, make a commitment to stick with your 4-week plateau-busting plan. "

honestly, i have started tracking, but the weakness, serious weakness, is exercise.... YUCK! and it is even prescribed! and i am still not doing it!! aaaahhh!!!!

sooo, i think the problem is supposed to be doing "intense". but i don't like exercise at, much less..."intense"... sooooo, whoever is reading this, pray for me yall, that i will LOVE exercise. that i will call it my friend. that i won't back down, stand my ground, and get up off my duff and work!

so, about my exercise?? so far, i have done VERY LITTLE to overcome it. i have made plan after plan and have never followed through. yikes... yikes!!

    I used to hate exercise. If you do it long enough, you can come to love it. Just find something you love to do so that it doesn't SEEM like exercise:

    Zumba, dancing, Wii Fit games, hula hooping. There are lots of choices.

    The dreaded plateau!!! I hit one and didn't move for 3 weeks...Instead of looking at it as a bad thing, I thought, well, at least I didn't gain anything! Change your workout routine...check your calorie intake...plenty of water, and most important...don't get discouraged! emoticon

    I suggest making a start, its always tough in the beginning and you ache all over, but it gets better after a while (two weeks) and then you start enjoying it, and then you crave it and become blue if you dont manage any. I went from couch potato to boot camper....its been 3 months for me now and I LOVE it.

    Humans are reward-motivated creatures. I found doing exercise as a way to "progress" further each day made me more likely to do it. The reward is two-fold: by doing the exercise you get it over with and can relax the rest of the day without feeling guilty. The other reward is you're one day closer to your goal each time you do exercise. It's like getting experience towards gaining a new level (that's the video game nerd in me talking, but hopefully it makes sense outside of that).

    Try mixing it up a bit: do different workout videos, use resistance bands instead of weights, use a stability ball, use for cardio, there's literally hundreds of options for that, you don't have to be stuck running or walking if you don't want to.
