I have lost 33 pounds in the last 5 1/2 months. It feels great but I still have a ways to go. The problem: the last 6 weeks I am only losing .5 pounds a week! I guess this is what they call plateauing. I knew it would be coming sometime, everyone warns you. I am taking it in stride. My jeans are so baggy so I know that the weight is not always the best indicator.
People have mostly said that when you hit a plateau, kick up your workouts and change them up too. So that is what I am going to be doing.
Time to change things up!
I kicked up my workout and this week I plan on trying new things to shock my body back into gear. I have been doing the elliptical for 45 minutes, 3x a week and 25-35 minutes, 3x a week. I also do circuit training.
I am also interesting in taking one of the classes available at my gym, in an earlier post I stated that it was my desire to not start classes until I was in better shape. Well… I think now is the time!
Will let you know how that goes!
