So I've done the programme for 12 weeks, and have no intention of stopping. I realise that this is a life change and continue to plot everything on MyFitnessPal - which I love.
Up until last week I was exercising four or five times a week - a fitness DVD at home and one external fitness class - FitSteps or Spin. And two weeks ago, I started adding some strength sessions into my evenings too. Unfortunately, I tend to eat all of the additional calories that I earn through exercise!
I also have MS which can lead to sudden episodes of exhaustion.
Subsequently, the last three weeks, I have put weight ON - just a pound or less each time, but it's going in the wrong direction! Meaning that I've lost a meagre 6 pounds in about 14 weeks! I'm very unhappy!
So this week I have decided not to beat myself up with all of my cardio exercises and to just go for long walks each day. And I think I need to shake up my recipes and start cooking different things.
I'm not giving up, but I'm very fed up. Does anybody have any other suggestions for things that I can try?
