Soooo glad its Friday today. I was able to sneak out of work early today to get some relaxation in. I am going to another hockey game tonight and will probably be out late, which sucks because my body needs a break!
I have worked 10-12 hours each day this week and it has taken its toll on me. I am stressed about everything, but Im glad I weighed in today and lost .4 since Wed, so all that stands between me and the 60s again is .7. Crazy to think I was there a week ago and all week long I couldnt get back there. Im thinking maybe last week was a fluke. I hate this up and down with the scale. I was losing consistently and now its such a struggle to lose anything except whatever I may gain.
I have been thinking a lot lately about what I am doing and if I am just slipping up on little things and that is causing this plateau of sorts. However, I can honestly say that I am not doing a thing differently than I did at day 1. I plan my meals every day. I drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. I eat on plan, with no little "sneaks" here or there. I dont eat over or under the plan. I still weigh/measure my foods that are not prepackaged.
So while its nice to know that I am not letting things slide that I should be focusing on, I know that it means that exercise is the only thing that may help me actually get to my goal. I also do have to take into account my crazy schedule. I am sure that is impacting everything as well. The amount of stress I am under combined with the fact that I have been eating dinner later at night due to me getting home so late, probably contributes too. I will give this another week and see what happens, and then I will probably have to do the dreaded limited Take Off that I did a ways back. I hated doing it, but it worked last time I was stalling. I think it was around 194-193 that it was happening, so I guess it doesnt seem wierd that little more than 2o pounds later Im hitting another stall. I have been sitting at 171-172 for weeks. Maybe TO is exactly what I need to push me down into the 60s. I would almost feel better plateauing in the 60s.
