I probably should add/remove little things at a time but I think I do tend to have an "all or nothing" mentality that sets me back a lot of times.
To answer your questions I made significant nutritional changes in January when I started (I used to eat pretty crappy) but I didn't add exercise until about 2.5- 3 months later. I don't do fad diets so I don't really deprive myself of any type of food groups although I do find I do better if I remove sweets all together because if I have 1 I have to have them all lol
I do get bored because I'm a picky eater and so when eating healthy I feel like I'm eating the same things a lot even though I try to search for new recipes and such, I feel like there's only so many ways to spin a salad ya know?
I don't skip meals and actually make it a point to eat something even if its small for breakfast because I didn't used to be much of a morning eater. I was tracking every thing so I feel like my meals were always pretty balanced but I haven't been lately.
I did try moving around my calorie intake with the increased exercise, I talked to my trainer about it and he recommended upping it for a week and then lowering and upping again etc. so I tried that a few weeks to see if that helped but I still wasn't losing. I wasn't gaining either which is good I suppose at least until recently but I know that's because I've just kind of abandoned eating healthy lately.
I just feel like I'm not in the right mindset for some reason and am trying to get back there, I start tracking in the morning but then seem to be slipping from there. I think I just lost my motivation when I stopped seeing results for so long. Its discouraging when I feel like I'm doing everything right and still not going anywhere =/
