This Sparked Me!

Sometimes when the scale stops moving for you, take a look at your calorie intake and exercise plan. More exercise may require more calories, so use the nutrition tracker to stay on track. Shake up your exercise routine to shock your body. Just don't get discouraged!

I started working out more which increased my calories needs but I stopped tracking them. The scale didn't budge for weeks. I started tracking my calories again and added Muai Thai kickboxing to my routine this past week and bam! I lost 4 lbs! Clearly, I wasn't getting enough calories for my activity level.
