I’ve been eating right. Working my tail off, switching up routines, lifting heavier, getting stronger, however — there is a little thing happening called a plateau. For the past 4 weeks the scale hasn’t moved.
I’ve been through this before, during my first go round of losing weight after baby, I went through several extended plateaus. The only thing that got me through them was putting me head down and working through it.
I have lost a steady 9 pounds since September. I am proud of that, plus the inches are coming off which is always welcomed.
Nothing crazy was inhaled this week. I did however have some ice cream for the first time in a really really long time. My sons Godfather went all the way out to Long Island and brought us back some homemade greatnut ice cream. I mean, talk about kryptonite! But I stayed strong I had 4 teaspoons and walked away knowing that I could have eaten the whole tub. I don’t even like ice cream like that but LAWD put me around some great nut and I have got trouble! Does ice cream do that to you?
How is your fitness goals coming along this week?
