“Sometimes, I wipe, and I wipe, and I wipe, and I wipe, and I wipe, and I wipe, and I wipe, and I wipe, and I wipe, and I wipe, and I wipe…Still poop.”
-Andy Dwyer from Parks and Rec
Being stuck is a lot like that. You work and work and work, and still no progress. But that’s often not what I see.
Thankfully it’s a lot simpler to spot. Here are the main reasons people get stuck.
- Never starting food tracking.
- Guestimating food intake without experience in tracking food.
- Inconsistently showing up to workouts. (three days of weight training is the bare minimum, folks) I did not make that rule. Blame nature.
- Easing up too much on the weekends. You can be in a deficit for five days straight and EASILY eat back the deficit and more in one night.
- Establishing/maintaining a bad story about your body, self-image, and fitness. This puts you in a low mood. How many great accomplishments have you made while your feeling like trash? You have to tell yourself a true, empowering story about who you are and what you can accomplish.
Being stuck indicates something needs to change.
