I guess I'm at one of those, plateaus. You know, where your numbers seem to kinda hover over a 10 day period. Where you're basically doing everything right, but progress is coming slower.
In reality, I have nothing to complain about. I got yet another positive comment from someone whom I have not seen for a few months (my realtor). I know I've shown some real results. In fact today is the first day of week 9, and in the past 8 weeks I've dropped 21 pounds. That's just over 2.6 pounds a week. I'm happy with that. I'd like to pat myself on the back but the way I see it I have maybe another 50 pounds to go before I go into "maintain mode" so I'm trying not to get too excited.
Do you celebrate when you're 20 minutes into a 30 minute cardio routine? No, you suck it up, try not to pay attention too closely to the time and you move ahead.
That's what I'm trying to do now. Maintain this lifestyle, but also step it up a bit at the same time. I mean, I could keep doing what I'm doing and I supposed in 5 or 6 months I'll have met my goal. But that sounds too easy. And if its too easy to get to my goal, I think it might be too easy to go back into bad habits. I don't know if that makes sense to anyone else, but I need to keep working hard exponentially. Eventually the hard things get easy so you have to switch it up to make it equally as hard. So that's what I'm going to do.
Ok, time to get some work done...
