Lucky week 7 right? Not so much. I moved the scale around to three different surfaces—no luck. Strangely though, I was only frustrated for about a minute—then I went off to the gym and hit some weights and ran on the treadmill. I wasn’t running on the treadmill at 350+ lbs.
I feel like it’s too early for a plateau. I tend to be pretty meticulous on logging everything—and usually undershoot the workout burn estimates. There could be other reasons for no loss—but for now, I’m not too worried about it.
- I basically copied off of last week’s plan hoping to replicate last week’s results. I did miss a Tuesday workout and yesterday was pretty low in calories though I honestly wasn’t hungry.
- It’s been a little bit of a stressful week—there is a link between stress hormone “cortisol” sabotaging weight loss efforts.
- Clothes are fitting more loosely and I’m noticing more muscle definition in my shoulders, arms and legs.
- I’ve jogged on the treadmill twice this week. I feel like I’m heart healthy enough to do it, but my body is still carrying a lot of excess weight. So I’m easing in.
Who’s ready for Spring?
