Still Trying to Figure it Out

Thank you all for your advice. I'm still trying to figure it out. The scale is still not moving. To address some of the tips:

  • Instead of a 'cheat day" I have 2 cheat meals on the weekends with my flex points

  • I don't do the same routine everyday. One day when I run I'll do sprints. One day I do inclines on my treadmill. Another day I will just run and the last day I do a long run.

  • I know I could increase my good fats. I'm bad about that.

  • I changed up from only doing Wii Fit to adding more sets and lifted with some weights.

So, I pretty much maintained again this week. I will try this week tp up my calories slightly as per Miz and my leader at Weight Watchers advised me. My WW leader said, "If you're treating your body like a machine, you need to fuel the machine." So that's what I'll try.

On another note, since I had found out Clif Bars and Luna Bars contained inulin/chicory root I gave them all to my mom last weekend. Then suddenly the peanut butter recall came out and I felt horrible. I just gave my mom a bag full of that stuff that I know she eats on a daily basis. I called her immediately when I found out for her to dispose of them though. Yikes. Here's what I did for workouts this week:

Monday- Sprint intervals for 3.5 miles, hiked 1.6

Tuesday- Weights and Wii Fit strength training

Wednesday- Ran hills 3.8

Friday- Ran 5 miles

Saturday- Walked at 4.2 on inclines from 4-12%

Sunday- Long run 6.1 miles in 56 min.

Here's a sample menu of what I eat. Feel free to critique
