How do you keep up motivation during a plateau?
I have very unforgiving genetics and although I work out more and eat healthier than anyone I know, I'm still significantly larger than many of my friends. I've been feeling great on daily burn and ignite and even lost a few pounds, but now I'm on day 50-ish of cardio sculpt and I'm starting to plateau. Also, I just found out my scale is about 6 pounds under actual weight, so I'm 6 pounds heavier than I thought and about 2 pounds heavier than my 'original weight' I entered in. I'm somewhat discouraged now. How do I keep going?ErinP123 by:
Plateauing is the worst--we're all with you and know you can keep going! Maybe switch up Cardio Sculpt with some of the Core workouts, or change up the time of day you're working out, just to give your metabolism a jolt and shake up the primary group of muscles you're working. Additionally, try taking your measurements today and use those to track your progress going forward instead of the scale. Do your clothes fit better than when you started? I bet they do! That's progress! If the scale reads a higher number, but your clothes fit better and you feel great, then your body is converting fat to muscle. A pound of muscle takes up less space than a pound of fat, so the scale may be moving up while your waistline shrinks. It's all good!
Good luck!! We're here for you!
