100-249 SparkPoints 190

beating the blahs

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

This has been possibly the most frustrating stretch of the journey so far. At least when I was gaining, I knew why I was gaining. I was eating poorly, not exercising, and not tracking anything. Now though I have been tracking everything, keeping to the minimum range of calories, exercising regularly and I can't get out of the 240s. It seemed like when I got in my groove, the weight came off regularly, and at a steady pace. Now, it's all over the place and 240 seems to be a wall I can't climb over. I guess I have to just keep swimming, stick to the plan, and try not to get too down. Harumph.

    lol sorry for the Dory expression...I don't swim; I've been running three days a week and doing cardio on elliptical or stairs 2-3 days/week. I know I need to do more weight training, but I don't want to look stupid at the gym! good suggestion though I know I need to build more muscle

    Are you doing anything besides swimming? I hit the same plateau when I was just running all the time, but throwing in weight training (and then switching that up with yoga) helped get things moving again.
