Hmm, you've got me to thinking. Back in September-October I believe it was, I started walking 30 min during lunch. I lost 8 lb in one month, which is big for me. And to give you an idea, my walks were probably at a speed of 4 mph, so not poking along but not speed walking either. Maybe a little something more, like a walk, will give you the extra push you need to get on a losing track.

Hi everyone,

I started my lean for life phase and I love it, it's challenging and fun to see how I've come so far in terms of strength when I do the push and burn workouts.

BUT... last week I had my TOM and extra poundage that comes with that has not come off. It's been already a week, so I know it's not water weight. My lowest was 168 before the TOM, and now it's a stubborn 172. I haven't changed my food intake or exercise routine, I am doing the same thing: I do 45 - 60 minutes of turbofire 3x a week, mixing up the HIITs and the regular workouts, and I do Chalean the other three days, with one rest day. I eat between 1300 - 1650 calories, sometimes I go a bit over the 1650. I burn (I use an HRM) around 1500 calories a week in cardio, but I have a fairly sedentary life (work at home, on the PC)

SO - I am thinking that my body might need more cardio to shake things up. I've seen Chalene say that for weightloss, you should do five-six days of cardio, and 2 days of weight training. I don't want to stop my lean for life phase, but I want to add low-impact cardio to those days that I lift.

Anyone had the same problem with the scale not budging, and then adding cardio and it helped? I was thinking of just walking, or maybe investing in a spinning bike and doing spinning videos, that might be fun. I'd love feedback!
