Thoughts: As the title states I am feeling kind of off today. I am aggravated because I am 222lbs today, after being 220 for 14 days. I am upset that, except for one night post workout I when I was 218, I have been unable to break through to 219 (my next benchmark). I have no idea how to break through this plateau. I lost the majority of my weight combining exercise and diet. The diet I was on I do not believe would support my training now. I was running up to 6 days a week at the time and often lost a pound a day. I do not want to run that much because I would rather focus on a balanced training schedule.
As aggravated as the lack of weight loss makes me, I am happy that last month my wife bought me a pair of shorts, they were my normal size and they were too big. I like the shorts so my wife bought me another pair in a smaller size, they were also too big. They fell off. My chest has also gotten smaller and my body fat percentage has been staying lower. I am happy for this and do realize that some of my lack of weight loss may be caused by gaining muscle as I increase abilities in my sports.
All that aside my diet went well today- eggs, salad, grapes, and ground beef made up the majority of my calories. Busy at work so I didn't get a chance to make it to the weight room, doubt I will make it up tommorrow.
