I dunno what my issue is. Maybe it's as simple as just eating too much. But whatever it is, I have to do something to get out of this rut!! Last time, I started just stringing good days together with green x's and I dropped ten pounds. Now I have been stuck at 237 for awhile. And as you can see from my ticker, it's because I have been going over my calories. Usually not by much... 1600 or 1700, but apparently enough to mess me up.
So my new plan is this:
Keep counting calories and staying under 1500, with the green x method.
Cut out the waffles and latte every morning. It is under 300 calories but I don't think it is helping any. So starting next week, instead of carbs for breakfast I will go back to making fat free yogurt/fruit smoothies for breakfast. That's what I had in August and September, and I lost weight well.
Up the exercise. I think my knees can handle the bike 5-6x a week, 20 minutes a day. I also think I can start strength training this week and that will help.
I also have been leaning on snacks like 100-cal granola bars or low fat crackers. Again, I think cutting the carbs and starting to eat more fruit will help.
That's my plan... thanks for letting me think out looud here and make a strategy to get another ten pounds off.
