View LYNNABEL's food & exercise for this day
Week 3 of Callie's Countdown was a big disapointment for me. No change in the scale or measurements. And I met all my goals except for only working out 3 times instead of 4. In and of itself this can't have made the difference between losing and not losing.
I was mad. Really mad, for the first few hours on Saturday morning. The weeks, for me, feels SO long when each day is limited to 1200/1300 calories that it is very hard not to be hugely disapointed when the scale shows none of that misery.
Eventually the anger passed, and I'm not changing anything except, if anything, to be MORE exact in my planning. I did consider upping the exercise a bit, but its just perfect the way it is right now, so I'd prefer not to. We'll see. I work from home today, which is the one day I usually don't workout during the week, so I'll have time to figure it out before work tomorrow.
By the way, I'd suspect a bit of stagnation due to the low calories if I weren't giving myself a refeed once a week. It has worked for me so well in the past, but if I have to increase the weekly calories a bit and give up the refeed, I will. I just want to get to maintenance.
