Week Eight

First of all, I want to start by saying Happy Birthday to Corbyn. Today was his birthday and we had a great time. We went to Classic Fun Center to celebrate and all the kids were very excited. Corbyn is going to be baptized on Saturday and we are very pleased with his decision. We gave him a new suit and he was very happy. Definitely his favorite gift was the Indiana Jones Lego Set he received. That's all he wanted to do the rest of the night.

So, my results for this week are the same as last week. I still weigh 164 lbs. It's kind of frustrating because I put so many hours of exercising in and I am still eating really healthy. I am definitely plateauing and I'm going to need to change things up a bit. I can really tell that things are fitting differently though. Today I put on a shirt that I love and the last time I wore it it was very tight! Now it is lose - I am so encouraged by that! The inches matter more than the weight!

Anyway, here's a summary of what I did:

22 Feb - Bike 35, Treadmill 25, Weights 20, less than 1000
23 Feb - Weights 20, Stairs 15, Bike 20, DDR 20, 1100 cal
24 Feb - Stairs 15, Bike 30, 1200 cal
25 Feb - Stairs 10, Bike 37, Bball 45, 1300 cal
26 Feb - Weights 20, Stairs 10, Bike 7, DDR 20
27 Feb - 1100 cal

I watched an interesting news report recently about some research study. They had found that for those losing 20 lbs or more it often worked well to loose 20, then work to maintain that loss for about 6 months--so the body metabolism "center" (in the brain) gets used to maintaining the loss--then work to lose more weight after that. People were less likely to put the weight back on cause the body got used to the initial loss before losing more.

Anyway--interesting. :)

Hey, I thought of you when I read this:

Step 3

Next, burn calories by constantly changing your exercise program every couple of weeks. If you always do the same exercise your body will adapt. You may have initially burned a lot of calories with a given exercise but over time your body adapt to the exercise and figure out a way to burn less calories. The human body is smart that way! So to prevent a plateau, keep changing your exercise program.
