I need to do something different this week because last week didn't go so well and I'm thinking that I may be hitting a plateau.
So first, I will be working out less. I have been doing 90 minutes on the elliptical or 60 if I run or do a DVD. But now I will be doing some strength training and then 30 minutes on the elliptical or the C25k. I will be trying to make the cardio more high intensity and in the "fat burning" zone. I need to finally get a heart rate monitor so I can better keep track of that as well as my calories burned. (If anyone has tips or reviews on certain ones, feel free to let me know! I think I know what I want, just haven't pulled the trigger yet.)
I have been reading the 5-Factor Fitness book, written by the guy who trained Halle Berry and Jessica Simpson and started following his fitness plan today (which is the strength training stuff). I might also follow his eating plan too, but I'm not sure yet. If you guys are interested, I'll do a little book/diet review on here.
The other thing I am doing is writing down everything I eat and counting the points of it. I am actually in a habit of eating less than my daily points and am actually finding it hard to eat all my 30 points for the day, which I know sounds absurd and maybe annoying. WW says that you really should eat all the 30 pts tho, so I don't know. Calories in - calories out?
