About that Plan B...

Weight is stubbornly refusing to move (except for 200g UPwards from Monday to Tuesday - not exactly what I was aiming for), so today I am doing what Coach calls a low grinder day. Ugh. 1200 measly calories.

It's actually not so bad, since I'm cramming in the veggies like nobody's business, especially the green stuff. I was well prepared too, making time yesterday to cook a veggie bake thingie, just in case. It consists of grated potato, carrot, zucchini, onion, an egg and a little bit of brown rice flour to help stick it together. A serve of that, along with broccolini and lots of baby spinach, and accompanied by (of course) chicken made a warm and satisfying lunch. And naturally, I still got my breakfast oats in AND my daily serve of yoghurt. I can't imagine a day without yoghurt....

The good news is, I get a treat meal tomorrow. Yay; no chance of Thursdayitis! (KatieP will know exactly what I'm talking about...). I'm leaning towards a Magnum, but who knows? I may change my mind by tomorrow evening.

The other good news is that I kicked BUTT at the gym this morning. Not only was cardio awesome, but my continuing mission to do 10 close-grip pullups in a row is getter closer to reality. Today I managed 5/4/3 - a total of 12. Next time I'm aiming for 6/4.

So I'm not sitting around whining about how unfair it is that I'm doing everything right but the scales won't play nice. Well, not much, anyway. I'm just staying firmly focused on doing what I have to do: Eat well, train hard, drink my water and get enough sleep. It's a winning formula and eventually has to add up to success. The laws of physics don't lie.

Hang in there - not long now. I think about you almost every day and I FEEL your pain.

I'm having vege cravings now (the salad I had for lunch doesn't count cos it's cold!). Am wondering if I can manage to cook up a bunch in the 30 mins I'm at home tonight!

The weight will go - just let it know it's not welcome :P

Stay tough! It'll come together (that's what I keep telling myself anyway-LOL!) And A+ for no whining!!! Bravo!

Hey Kek, hope your low day went OK yeterday. At least you had something to look forward to.
