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.
