I Need Help!
Wednesday, August 13, 2014
I am experiencing a plateau. I don't understand what I am doing wrong.
I haven't blogged in awhile, I have been concentrating on my exercise program and trying to change my sedentary lifestyle.
I am experiencing a plateau and I can't understand why. It is frustration working to overcome physical disabilities and giving 100% and seeing no return. I am trying to remain positive, but I am struggling.
1. I track my food Religiously. I have not once exceeded my calorie or fat goals. I have overshot the cabs 3 times, but it was always 15 points or less. I have always been one to get hungry at night. Just before bed I will have a bit of fresh fruit or maybe TBS of peanut butter if I am under fat goals. I am on an anti inflammatory diet. So I am consuming mostly veggies, fruit and lean meat. I drink 8-10 glasses of water everyday.
2. I exercise 30 minutes 3-4 times a week, and every day I at least do 10-30 minutes of housework. I used to be totally sedentary. I do have medical conditions that leaves me with limited mobility, but I have really put forth an effort. My heart rate speeds up and a break a sweat, so I know I am working. .
I want to note I change my workouts constantly. I change the types of exercises I do as well as the time of day.
3. I take a good multivitamin, as well as extra calcium and vitamin E. I am deficient in them.
My weight has stalled for a week. My measurements have not drastically changed in a month. Except for an inch in the hips. What am I doing wrong that the scales or measurements aren't moving? I do have a sleep disorder, the one problem I have is getting a good amount of restful sleep. Any advice is very welcome!
