What a crazy week. I have been on the go and working long days. I was excited the Thursday was going to be simple evening... still full of homework, but simple.
I am looking forward to the weekend off from work.
I had a question this week regarding moving past plateaus.
We face plateaus when working towards our goals and often times we move backwards because we get discouraged. Don't move backwards when you hit a plateau.
These are the 5 things I believe really help..
1. Track your diet. A lot of times the "just this once" snacks and candy creeps up on us. Make sure you are eating every 2-3 hours... Lean proteins, complex carbs throughout the day... and healthy fats in moderation. I use my planner to track my intake and make adjustments when needed. I also use the My Fitness Pal App to track my diet.
3. Increase the intensity... Work out harder. I know...you already kill your workout, but try some new HIIT Workout programs or a new workout plan. I love High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) when I've hit a plateau.
Disclaimer: I am far from an expert, but these are the things that work for me. =)
I have hit those plateaus before...and they suck! Move past them... it happens, but keep going.
The worst thing you could do is over indulge out of frustration...
