Hello there also I wanted to add are you logging your foods a lot of times we think we have the food under control but often we go over calories if we're not truly watching and or logging what we're eating....good luck to you this to will pass

If You're tired or starting over stop giving up

Love your tips. I don't have a lot of gadgets either so your way to tell if cardio is good enough is very helpful. The only other tip that I would add is getting enough sleep. This is very hard for me but did do a lot better the last week.

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. emoticon emoticon emoticon
