So on Friday I started to up my calories and didn't really pay attention to the calorie amount. That might have been my first no no]. I didn't go crazy and eat bad foods but it did lead to a binge day. Friday and Saturday was ok. I actually started to get a little sick by eating high calorie foods like pizza. Now did I have to eat pizza??? No! I chose to eat pizza because if I was going to up my calories why not treat myself with higher calorie foods. After Saturday I couldn't take it anymore and started to eat clean again on Sunday. It didn't last long though.

So for months I have been seeing at least 2 pounds down a week but ever since I hit the 40 pound mark I am stalling out. I have not lost one pound since then. I am still eating clean and working out 6 days a week so what gives???? It is frustrating to see me hit a plateau and I want no parts of it. I spent the weekend reevaluating my food intake and workout regimen and I am implementing some changes.

I was at a point when I was going to do them back to back, but I changed my mind. I want to follow the program to see how things go without altering it. What I am doing instead I feel with give me the rest of the calorie burn I need. One

Well Saturday was my weightloss group weigh-in and I am officially down 40 pounds... whoot whoot! Although the numbers on the scale are steadily going down I still haven't seen a huge difference in the mirror. I have now started to try on clothes I couldn't fit and guess what?..... I can fit some of them again. Yyaaayyyyyyyyy!!!!!

When I got pregnant with my twins, the weight gain changed my knee entirely. I went from my knee giving out here and there to knee pain and limitations. I am still dealing with the knee pain to this day and my huge weight gain last year only made it worse. It is very common that weight can affect your joints and mine definitely contributed to mine. Now that I am seriously working out, my knee has been a limiting factor in what I can do. I have modified as much as I can and took the initiatives to find a knee brace to support my knee and eliminate some of my modifications. I first went to my local pharmacies and places like Wal-Mart to find a reasonably priced one, but they did not carry anything that would fit my leg. I then went to my doctor and she wrote a prescription for me to get one. After the weeks of dealing with insurance requirements I finally got my knee brace yesterday.

Whole 30. Whole 30 is clean eating to the next level. You will still eat lean meats, vegetables, and fruit, but you cannot have any dairy, grains, or sugar of any kind. You also cannot eat legumes, consume alcohol, and you are limited on ingredients in foods and seasonings. Whole 30 is free and takes you back to the basics.
What is the Whole30®?
Certain food groups (like sugar, grains, dairy and legumes) could be having a negative impact on your health and fitness without you even realizing it. Are your energy levels inconsistent or non-existent? Do you have aches and pains that can’t be explained by over-use or injury? Are you having a hard time losing weight no matter how hard you try? Do you have some sort of condition (like skin issues, digestive ailments, seasonal allergies or fertility issues) that medication hasn’t helped? These symptoms may be directly related to the foods you eat – even the “healthy” stuff. So how do you know if (and how) these foods are affecting you?
