I've been on a plateau since September 23. Ugh!! But, I have been sick during that time & had to go off my allergy meds for a week to be retested to see how my allergies are doing. (They are much, much better, by the way -- allergy shots do work).
Anyway, I know that my body has been fighting, so I really can't fault it for hanging out at the same weight for awhile. But it is frustrating, to say the least.
So, I'm just going to keep doing what I'm doing -- stay within my calorie range, do strength training 3 times a week & cardio 3 times a week -- until this annoying plateau breaks.
Once I hit the 15 lb. mark, I will post some before & after pics & then I can FINALLY download some new books to my Kindle. No new books until I hit 15 lbs. lost!!!
Blessings to you!!

As you can see by my SparkPage, I am a breast cancer survivor. I would be remiss if I didn't post a blog reminder that:
Ladies, please go get "the girls" checked out. Promise me that if you haven't had a mammogram in the last year that you will go THIS MONTH. As an incentive, most places give free gifts if you have your mammogram in October. I got a nice lanyard for my work ID badge & a nice water bottle to take to the gym last year. And, as things turned out, that mammogram changed my life forever. Mammograms are not fun & they are a bit uncomfortable, but early detection is key!! Trust me, I know from experience. A few minutes of discomfort is so much better than the alternative.
Guys, you're not immune. If you have something wacky going on in that area, don't be macho & think it'll just go away on its own -- go have it checked out ASAP!! My poor brother has a higher risk of breast cancer because I've had it.
Sooooo, just so we're clear:
so that you can:
Blessings to you!!!

My husband jokes that I get up "in the middle of the night" to get ready for work. It's not actually the middle of the night, but it is very early in the morning (3:45 a.m.). I have a long commute to work and even though I have been working in the same office complex for 25 years & getting up very early in the morning, I am STILL not a morning person. It's really hard to be this chipper this early in the morning when I'd love to sleep for another couple of hours.
After a long day at work, the LAST thing I want to do is go to the gym, but I really can't get up any earlier, so we work with what we have, right? But, I go to the gym most every evening on my way home from work. It's not only good for my health, but it keeps me from taking out my frustrations of the day on DH when I get home.
The biggest plus is that I feel AMAZINGLY wonderful by the time I get home. I hold onto that feeling every day so that I make sure I go to the gym before I come home.
So today, gym bag packed -- check; ice water -- check; gym shoes -- check. I'm ready for Zumba class this evening!!
Have a Terrific Tuesday!! Blessings to you!!
