No progress this week.

This past week has been tough because I’ve had some pretty intense cravings (all of which I’ve ignored, by the way), and I’ve also fought through feelings of lethargy and mustered up some pretty amazing workouts. The results of my efforts? No progress this week. In fact, yesterday was a refeed day and this morning I’m bloated from all the carbs. I’m actually 2 pounds heavier than I was last Sunday, and every single tape measurement is absolutely identical to last Sunday’s measurements. Ouch.

At least my body fat reading technique seems to be consistent! This morning my body fat reading is identical to last week’s reading: 8.2% (as measured using a 7-site pinch test with the FatTrack PRO Digital Body Fat Calipers from the JSF Amazon Mall).

Now, I want to be clear that I’m not in any way discouraged by this. Yes, it’s frustrating to bust your butt for a week and not see any results, but sometimes it happens. When you plateau sometimes you simply need to stay the course, and sometimes an adjustment is in order. No one said getting below 8% body fat was going to be easy! My “gut” tells me that a tweak to my caloric intake is needed (as much as I hate the thought of eating less!), and perhaps a bit more cardio. Despite my own personal feelings, the choice of what (if anything) to change is 100% up to my trainer, Mastover. I strongly believe that when you place your trust in a trainer, his or her word is the law. I have every confidence that at this time next week I will have busted my plateau.

Thanks for stopping by – have a great day!
