Turn off teh TV

I have decided to not watch TV during the summer months by disconnecting my TV. I am doing more walking & outside activities by not watching TV. This way I am hoping this will break the plateau I have been on for the past six weeks.

Kick start your metabolism with a short morning workout

Break through a plateau by kick starting your metabolism in the morning with a short workout. After a frustrating plateau, I started riding the stationary bike in the morning for 15 mins, in addition to my regular workouts. Within days my weight started going down again. Plus, a 100 kcal workout every morning adds up to an extra full days workout by the end of the week.

Patience

Plateaus can feel like getting "stuck" but it may be your body is just resetting itself. Keep doing what you know you need to do and be patient. In time, you will move forward again, better than ever!

Ditch the Scale

As the unofficial queen of plateaus, I can tell you this: Ditch the Scale. Put it outside in the garage and leave it there for a few weeks. Switch up your routine somewhat. Do more weights, do less cardio or vice versa. Eat breakfast for dinner. Just do something different.

Count sugar grams

Stay within your calorie range, but also keep your sugar grams below 25 grams for the day. It works for me every time! There are lots of carbs out there which are low in sugar (beans, berries, weight control Oatmeal). I use the Notes feature to keep up with the sugar grams that I consumed each meal.
