I’m not sure if I mentioned this before, but I am a second grade teacher. Not to make excuses for why I haven’t been around to post, but I have been BUSY! The end of the year is always a crazy time and we are working our way down. Only seven days with kids and ten days total left for me. It is a great feeling. Especially since we are actually going to be taking a few trips this year. It gives me something to look forward to instead of the anticipation of sitting around and being bored for a lot of the summer. Also, I feel like I will really be able to make this a better blog once I have time on my hands to do so.
On a weight-loss related note, I have hit a plateau but I think it is only my fault… not my body already adapting. I have been using MyFitnessPal religiously. So, I am able to go back and look through my food diaries to see what I am doing that could be sabotaging myself. Enter the dreaded carbs and sugars! HELLO, WEAKNESS! Holy moly. I have been eating (what I was thinking) to be *so* healthy! haha Well, I allowed my sugary Kashi (no fructose, though!) to sneak in to where I am eating 2 full portions at breakfast time. HELLO! No. Aaannddd, I have been eating a cup of frozen yogurt on many nights. I think I got comfy because my body was losing the weight with these thing initially and then figured it was okay to have them all the time.
Sooo, now I have to take a second look and reevaluate my meal choices. I can still have a cup of frozen yogurt… maybe once every week or two. And I can still have my Kashi, just maybe not everyday and sticking to just one portion! Otherwise, I do think I have been doing pretty well and I have been staying active with workout DVDs and other activities.
What do you do when you hit a plateau? Give me some of your tips and advice in the comments!
