When I am on a plateau, I first look at my exercise. Am I getting my 30 minutes a day of cardio? Where I can still talk but have to catch a breath in between sentences? I am trying to keep my new lifestyle very simple so I don't have a heart rate monitor or any other gadgets. So talking during exercise lets me know if I am getting my heart rate up enough.
If so I look at my water intake. Have I been getting my 8+ glasses a day?
Have I been taking my multivitamin daily?
If those things are good then I pick apart my diet. Am I eating 3 meals a day? Are those meals nutrition packed or do they contain a lot of processed foods. If I can't find anything wrong with my diet, then I will go through the week and figure out what I ate a lot of and replace it with a salad, bowl of steamed veggies, or fruit.
From what I have read and experienced, plateaus are not a bad thing. They are part of the journey. Think of them as your body needing a little adjustment period. Keep loving your body with great food and exercise and it should pass.
