it's also the point in my workout routine (I do DVD's that are tiered, step 1, 2 & 3) where I'm supposed to move to step 2 which means increasing my cardio 10 extra minutes.
I'm trying to figure out how to approach this. I've tried doing both this week, being easier on myself about the calories; trying to keep them under the "new amount" but not focusing on it unless they went over or came really close to the "old amount," which was twice this past week.
I think I'm going about this wrong. I've gotten a slump starting to rear its head. I get up in the morning and all I want to do is go back to sleep, even if its on the couch. I don't have the energy or desire to do the daily chores let alone workout/calorie count; but on the same hand I don't want to undo all my progress and I really, really want the scale to go back down so I'm trying to find the energy to move and keeping the Slump Monster at bay. I'm really wondering if this has to do with the situation with the increase workout/decrease calories delima.
How would you guys go about it? I'd really, really, really appreciate your advice.
