I weighed in this morning and I have lost nothing this week. I am still at 290. I was hoping to finally be able to say that I have lost 50 pounds. Days like today are the days when I want to give up so bad BUT after fuming to myself about it; I am now ok with not losing anything. Crap happens. I need to forget about it and move on. I know I have done nothing wrong. I have worked out every day & a couple of the days I even worked out twice. The only thing I cheated with was my pizza that I had on Tuesday and I didn’t even eat an excessive amount of that. I am just glad I am exactly the same as I was last Friday and didn’t gain anything.
I looked online to get some advice and it made me feel better. I have come to the conclusion that I need to work on doing the following:
A: Increase my calorie intake but not by eating junk. Lately I have only been eating about 700 to 900 calories a day. Not on purpose either! I don’t really snack in between meals. For breakfast I have a banana or an egg & toast, maybe cereal. It never exceeds 200-300 calories. Then for lunch I either eat a 300 calorie or less lean cuisine and for dinner the same or sometimes I’ll have a chicken breast (100 calories) and some veggies. I don’t feel like I’m starving myself. I am satisfied after every meal and rarely get that “hungry” feeling. I think I will be able to solve this problem by forcing myself to have a healthy snack in between breakfast and lunch and then another snack in between lunch and dinner.
B: Intensify my workouts and keep them consistent. I also need to force myself to do it 6 days a week; twice a day. My body might be getting used to doing the same thing so I need to switch it up. I kind of started stepping it up at the beginning of this week but by the time Wednesday hit was back to only working out once a day. Change is hard!!!!!
