Emotionally drained that is how I feel this morning. Maybe even a little defeated and discouraged. I woke up this morning and as always I went downstairs, stepped on the scale and what did I find +1 on the scale. I can not think of any reason for this. I killed myself last night working out, I ate good, I drank more water than normal. I spoke before about trying to overcome my addition to the scale or feeling that I am a slave to the morning routine. Why would this morning be any different?

I except to hit a plateau at some point just not week 3. My goal of 9 in 9 seems so far away now, and even impossible. Before I get too discouraged I plan to evaluate my plan and see if any changes can be made.

Here are a few tips for getting past a plateau:

  • Reassess your habits. Look back at your food and activity records. Make sure you haven't loosened the rules, letting yourself get by with larger portions or less exercise.
  • Cut more calories. Reduce your daily calorie intake by 200 calories — provided this doesn't put you below 1,200 calories. Fewer than 1,200 calories a day may not be enough to keep you from feeling hungry all of the time, which increases your risk of overeating.
  • Rev up your workout. Increase the amount of time you exercise by an additional 15 to 30 minutes. You might also try increasing the intensity of your exercise, if you feel that's possible. Additional exercise will cause you to burn more calories.
  • Pack more activity into your day. Think outside the gym. Increase your general physical activity throughout the day by walking more and using your car less, or try doing more yard work or vigorous spring cleaning.
I will review, adjust, and keep working toward my goal.
