A little down today!

Wednesday, September 01, 2010

Okay so I am on day 17 of my extreme new diet methods. The first week I lost 6 pounds week two I lost 2 now I have not seen a change all week. I have been working out about 45 minutes a day, I am eating on the low end of my calories range and I am doubling the amount of calories I am suppose to burn exercising every week. UGHH! I was really hoping to be out of the 190's in the month of August but I am stuck at 192. This morning it read the same as yesterday. Yesterday I worked out for 45 minutes in the morning and 15 last night. I had a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, a PB& J sandwich and quaker Tortillaz for Lunch, had a subway 6 inch for dinner and still no loss. Yesterday I was low in the veggie department because I had to run errands at lunch and last night I went out because I had to go Grocery shopping and the kids where with me. I did not want to shop on an empty stomach so I went to subway.

I am hoping to have at least a one pound loss by Friday but secretly I wanted to be out of the 190's for good. I have considered eating more but am scared I will continue to get on the scale that is forever stuck at 192.

Tonight is the end of summer camp carnival which means there will be hot dogs, cotton candy, popcorn and every junk food known to man. I am going to try and eat something before we go but I am such a sucker for cotton candy. I know it is nothing but pure sugar but dang it is so good. I will continue to be good all day with the exception of the candy. I know I will not be able to refuse it. I have been so strict on my diet for the past 17 days I think I will splurge a little. But I know if my scale does not move on Friday's weigh in i am going to blame the candy.

I am getting a little depressed about school starting back next Tuesday. My youngest will be starting kindergarten. I can't believe she old enough for school now. She has her Icarly backpack all ready and has been walking around the house with it ready to go. She has been practicing writing in her composition book and sticking it in the backpack like a big girl. I still have some back to school shopping to do for both kids. My daughter continues to outgrow everything so quickly. I will only buy a couple more outfits because I know I will be buying long pants soon. We only have 6 to 8 more weeks of good weather.

Well I better get back to work. Maybe I will do some desk exercises since no one is in the office this morning. ha ha

    I do think a high calorie (not over you limit .. just on the high side) will help .. your metabolism may have reached a set-point. This is when your exercise and calories are the same over a period of time .. your body will actually set your metabolism to hold onto the weight. Change up your exercise (do a different workout completely) and alter your calorie intake (eat in your range everyday, but vary low, med and high). This should push you past your plateau!

    Hang in there. Your body might take a week or so to get used to this method. If you are eating at the low end and then working out twice as hard, your body might be going into starvation mode....just a thought. And don't get down about a small cotton candy splurge. If you walk around enough at your carnival, you might even things out! Good luck and enjoy the time spent with your family!

    Just a thought. Maybe you are being too hard on yourself!!Weighing on the scale is not the only measure of your success. Have you measured your waist, thighs, chest, arms lately? You have probably lost inches since you are exercising so much. I eat a little dark chocolate every day so I don't deprive myself. If I go too extreme and restrict too many of the things I really want to eat I won't stick with the program. You are doing great. Walk after the fair so you will feel better about eating the cotton candy. You can do this...we both can. And congrats on the kindergartner. I'm sure you've done a wonderful job preparing her...so be proud of her and yourself as the good parent you are. I have teenagers and no it doesn't get any easier the older they are. We just love them and pray that we've raised them with enough tools to make good choices in their own lives. Ever since my kids were in elementary school I would always say to them "Make good choices" as they were getting out of car in front of the school. Hang in there. emoticon
