My eating isn't terrible but it could stand to be cleaned up some more so I quit WW. (Don't freak out on me now, there is method to my madness). I quit WW for a couple of reasons. I think it is a really good tool for beginners. It allows you to gain control over your eating and teaches healthy eating habits. However, now I know what I should be eating and how to listen to my body and the point system really doesn't correlate when everything else is based of off calories and nutritional value. So I switched over to My Fitness Pal. I made this switch so I could start tracking calories as well as proteins, carbs, etc. Plus I wanted to put the $18.95 a month I spend on WW towards another monthly subscription.
So I joined a gym. I mainly joined so I would have access to heavier weights and have a place to run if it was cold and/or rainy (this is Texas, I never know what the weather is going to do). When I signed up, I also signed up for a few sessions of personal training. I need someone to show me more exercises I can do on my own. I already had one session with my PT and can't wait for the next (I have been sick and had to postpone my second session).
With these modifications I have made I am starting to see some changes in my weight/body and hope they continue. The bigger picture with these changes is to not only jump start my weight loss again but I want to be more confident in the gym setting and build strength. I want to feel like a BAMF no matter what size or what weigh I am.
Have you ever hit a plateau in your fitness? What did you do to get past it?
Until next time,
