Ofcourse you know I’ve been stalling with my weight loss attempt. As per plan, I expected to be safely out of sight from the 80’s by now, hovering at 77-78. But nope. No luck there. All of January and until now, I have been so regular with my exercise schedule getting about 40 mins of intense cardio a day, 5-6 days a week. I have also been tracking food and I think I’ve been doing pretty alright on that front too. I have been hovering between 80-81 for a month and a half now!
WHY won’t the scale budge?
I observed that now my weight goes down only if I ate only veggies through a day. (I weigh in everyday btw)However those days, I felt I was nearly dying by the end of working hours at office and would go home very, very fatigued. Given that I burned approx 400 cals during my workout, obviously eating only veggies is NOT sustainable. So I have added back rice to my diet. My eating looks like this:
Breakfast contains rice lentils and veggies.
Lunch is a fruit, lentils, veggies and low fat curd
Dinner is similar to lunch sans the fruit
1 cup of coffee
1 cup of tea
A large cup of double skimmed milk after dinner
Right now, I DON’T want to alter my eating plan. I think I’m doing alright. And I’m tracking.
So this morning at the gym, I headed to the weights section. I think part of the fat in my body is being stubborn and holding on to me with too much love. May be weight training will help me to burn that stubborn fat? Do you think? Any suggestions? I’d really appreciate help.
Can you hear a puppy whine? That me, just in case :P
