Right on girlie!
For me, if something seems wonky here are the things I look at.
My food: Do I still have "hospital corners?" What I mean is, am I focusing on protein and dropping the things that are not OPTIMUM nutrition? (Sure nuts are okay, but are they OPTIMUM - sure that protein bar is within my nutrient macros I am trying to hit, but would I/could I be better served with dense protein?). So first thing I do is look and cull anything that is just an extra. Oh, also see if I am consuming a lot of prepackaged things - am I making sure they are not sneaking in a lot of sugar or sodium in there!?
My behavior: Am I making sure to not be snacking? Am I sure to get enough water in and follow the rules of drinking before/after meals for X minutes?
My movement: Is there any way I can increase the EXERTION without increasing the time? If I am hiking 2 miles every day, maybe I can add 20 pounds to a back pack and then I exert more energy in the same amount of time - that sort of thing!
And if all of my BEHAVIORS are in line with what my GOAL is - then its coming and I need to remind myself that this is me practicing for maintenance ! there will come a time when I do the right thing because its the right thing to do, and I will not *see* the benefit of it as soon, but BENEFIT IS COMING!!
Anyway, those are the things I check off when I am going through my list of "what's going on here!!" :}
Good job girlie! Keep it up! One step at a time!
