I've reached the dreaded "crawl" in my weight loss and inches. I blame: Jillian Michael's. It doesn't feel like I should be entering conservation mode because I am only working out 20 minutes a day, however; the scale and measuring tape are starting to say otherwise. I was actually surprised to have lost any weight this week because I just feel, well, crappy for lack of a better word.
I've been feeling less energized, super moody (and its not even close to that time yet) as well as just blah over all. Everything is pointing towards the body quite misleadingly thinking its starving. I have to switch things up and get back to a place where my body and spirit can co-exist in harmony while walking hand in hand towards my end goal. So how in the world am I to convince this body of mine that everything is ok?
For one, I refuse to cut back on exercise…that is just not going to happen. I need exercise and I've got to the point where it is habit, and don't want to lose that drive.
So, what other options do I have? Diet modification. I thought cheating by adding a little more condiments, a little more calories here and there would be enough, but I was wrong. Right now I'm eating on the Medifast 5&1 plan (5 Medifast meals + 1 Lean & Green meal). The next step would be to switch to the 4&2 plan (4 Medifast meals + 2 Lean & Green meals).
I'm sort of torn on whether I want to just finish out the 30 Day Shred without changing things up because even though I only lost 1 pound and less than 2 inches, it was still a loss. Can I use mind over matter here or am I just delaying what will actually work? I haven't decided what it will be yet, whether I will do one more week, finishing out the Shred, or start taking in a few more calories. Guess you'll have to visit next week to see!!
Have you reached a plateau in your weight-loss? How did you break out of it? What helped you battle through!?
I'm proud of these choices:
I'm rocking the 30 Day Shred, only 8 days left until I can say I did it!
I'd like to work more on:
Getting to bed by 10pm, most nights.
Keeping my food journal again.
Drinking half my body weight in ounces of water.
I totally cheated when:
I've been eating these delicious sugar free Jell-o mousse cups with sugar free Cool Whip, does this count as cheating??
How did you do this week?
