I'm feeling a little disheartened this week. Since exercising like crazy from Oct/Nov (and calorie counting/two day fasting) my weight loss has been great and I've been feeling so motivated and happy! But it has been challenging fitting in exercise with work and family life and I have been trying to study to get into a new career - one day!
I decided to cut back the exercise - only a little! So I could fit in more study time. But now my weight loss was a disappointing 1lb last week!
My calories tdee is like 2300 calories but I have 1900 max weekends, 800 twice a week and 1600 ish the other three days.
I was going out for 2 miles walks or runs daily (on C25K I can only run three times a week to allow for recovery) swimming Wednesday's. Some home aerobics daily and another 2 mile walk sat and sun (so 4 miles on weekends)
I have since got a treadmill (mechanical) which allows me to not always have to go out. In order to fit in more study time I now do the run three times a week. Swimming Wednesday's. Treadmill three times a week and aerobics three times a week. And now my youngest can ride a bike I have ditched taking the car on the school run and ride instead and we like going for a ride on weekends too for about 30-40 minutes.
If I have to up my exercise I think I will go crazy! I barely get time to do everything as it is!
I have currently lost 2 stone 8lbs and wonder if it's one of those plateau things? The week I only lost 1lb I was ill and off work for a few days? Then had a KFC treat! But was still under my max 2300 calories for that day.
Also with snow coming this week I'm worried I won't get my runs which burn the most calories!
