I probably shouldn’t be surprised, given how I completely ignored my goals last week, but I gained weight. As a result, I am not a happy individual right now.
What happened? Well, a combination of things. First off, to be honest, I wasn’t feeling really well last Saturday and Sunday and I didn’t eat much as a result. That probably helped skew my results – I had myself down as losing 4.2 pounds in one week, which is a lot. But I have to be honest here, that’s only part of the reason. The rest is that I found excuses last week to overeat and underexercise. That caught up with me, and I lost out on two weeks of work as a result – one week where I actually met my goals, and the second where I didn’t try.
So, no. I don’t believe I’m “plateauing”. I believe I got slack, and backslid as a result.
Well, it’s not happening again. This week, I’m hitting my calorie and my exercise goals. No excuses. I’ve made a whole lot of progress, and I feel good about what I’ve done, and I’m not sliding backwards any further than I already have.
