July 27, 2011 - Finally another blog. Been kinda depressed lately.

So the past couple of weeks I've felt pretty robotic. I've been eating mostly on track every day and exercising mostly every day but I just haven't been excited about it. I've lost my oomph. On top of that I haven't been losing any weight because I haven't really been pushing myself, but at least I haven't gained much either. It is sad for me to know that I have been in the 180s pretty much since April. I looked at my goal weight progress and reached 189 in April of 2011 and now here we are almost in August, 3 months later, and I weigh 186? Either this is the biggest plateau ever or I'm not doing what I need to be doing, even though 90% of the time I feel like I am pushing myself a good amount. So it just makes me feel kind of down. Obviously if you're eating like a cow and not exercising it's easy to tell where your mistakes are and why you're not losing weight. It's just very frustrating knowing that I'm getting more fruits/vegs in, more water in, working out and strength training pretty much every day, and that I still can't lose more than 3 pounds in 4 months. I don't know what else I can do to help speed this process along, or at least help it move at all - in the right direction, mind you.
I've been catching up on Summer Challenge Team Member blogs and a few people (LINASMILEY and EBERKSHIRE) have mentioned that they are trying to stay in range for protein/sugar/fat/cals and have decided I need to work on this to see if I can get more results. Does anyone know where I can find a way to compute my needs? I've been trying to eat healthier but realize my food could use some improvement, as I really don't think I need to do anything else exercise-wise.
Please let me know and have a great day, Sparkers! Hopefully this will be the motivation I need to keep trudging along!
