1 Year Doctor Appointment

Today was my one year doctor appointment.

I am 3 days from my actual one year bandaversary.

I thought today would have went down differently than it did.

I figured at this time, I would be at my goal weight.

I am not.

I still have 18-20 pounds to go depending on the day.
These last pounds have proven to be harder than the previous 100.

So, I found out today that I am at a "plateau".  Apparently most people hit them, my time is now.
I was like, what do I do now? How can I get past this? I weighed exactly the same this month as last month at their office. I do not want this to happen again.

The advise I got. Amp up/change up my exercise. Including adding strengthening with my awesome kettle bell  here. (That I have been using as a decorative piece in my living room).

When I got home I was trying to decide how I was going to increase or change up my exercise routine. The only way I get a good cardio workout is from running. But, how do I change running? I have been running about 2 miles daily and participating in 5Ks. I actually have one scheduled this weekend.

There is only one way run.
So, then I decided....I will begin training for a 10k.
I loaded a new app for my iPhone that is a bridge program from 5K-10K in 6 weeks.

This will increase my run time, increase my run intensity, and all willing...get me off this plateau.


  1. they say the closer you get to where you need to be the slower the weight drops. Don't worry about it. you will get there.

  2. You are a Rockstar! Don't stress, you are focused and will kick the last 20 in the ass! I just know it!
