- I can run 30 min straight pretty easily anytime.
- I can run 5km if I really try.
- My clothes are looser.
- I sleep better.
- I feel better.
But yet....I'm still carrying about an extra 60 lbs that needs to be gone.
7 weeks of bouncing the same 1.5 lbs is driving me crazy today. I did a ton of activity last week, and have been more active the last 8 weeks than I have been in about 15 years. I stay within my WW points and I eat about 80% clean.
This week, I'm going to try and add in more lean protein and add about 3 points a day from my Weekly Points. I try to save those for eating out or if I want something that's not in my usual eating plan, like ice cream or chocolate. But this week I'll intentionally use 3 extra day just for lean protein and see if this helps kick me off this plateau.
And, I'm going to try and up the activity. The days I don't run - I'm going to walk or do the Wentworth Stairs. Realistically, I know I can't keep up exercise 7 days a week forever and if I try to put that pressure on myself I'll just pack it all in. But for a week....just to try and shake things up, I can do it.
So...let's see if this works. I'll check back with you in a week or so.
On a good side - we have completed Week 8 of Couch to 5K. Last week coming up. I have been bouncing ideas about what to do about running when the 9 weeks is up - I haven't made a final decision yet.
Hope you are all having a great week!
