Still going strong but...

the scale is NOT MOVING. This is so puzzling to me b/c 95% of the time when I work out consistently and eat the right foods the scale moves down. Sometimes it is slow but it moves. I am still going at it though. I was at the gym this morning at 5:30 and did UB ST and eliptical.

I am still trying to take it easy on my knee and not run or do lunges or squats to see if that helps it. I go back to the Dr. tomorrow afternoon for him to kind of wrap it up and tell me where I need to from here. Not sure if I need more adjustments or certain exercises or what. We shall see.

Food for today:
post workout - protein shake
B - oatmeal w/ flax meal, fiber one, cinnamon, 1 tbsp of pecans, 1/2 cup of peaches
S - 10 baby carrots and 2 tbsp of spicy mustard
L - tuna w/ 2 tbsp lite miracle whip, 1 hard boiled egg
S - greek yogurt, 1/4 cup of fiber one, 1/2 cup of cantaloupe
D - grilled chicken, steamed squash and asparagus

There is one thing that is NOT happening and that is bathroom visits. I pee all day long but lack in the other area. Hence the fiber one and flax meal you see in my meal plan. I do think that is part of my issue, I am not getting rid of waste consistently.

I know it's hard to do but just forget the scale for a little while! It will catch up to your hard work in no time.

To answer your questions I buy chobani and Luna Bars at Publix. I think you can get the bars at Target, Wal-Mart, etc. though.

I am sure that is why the scale is not moving. Eat a grapefruit and maybe a little more spinach, a few prunes and you will get things moving. :)

Glad to hear you have kept up the morning workouts! It feels great, doesn't it?

Hmmm...if the scale isn't moving, are you losing inches at all? That happens to me from time to time. The scale won't move, but then when I measure myself, I've lost inches.

Or you could have hit a notorious plateau. How often do you change up your routine?

Keep up your hard work and the scale will follow!

I so understand, as you read a few days back. I'm still trying to find the right mix myself. You would think with all the fiber and veggies, it wouldn't be a problem. We are obviously missing something. If you find it, let me know.
