Weight plateau

Posted January 25, 2011 11:14 a.m. EST

This is day 79 of our 100 Days of Fitness program. I’ve hit a weight plateau. I’d still like to lose another four lbs. in the final 21 days of the campaign. Coach Tara Wind has kicked up the exercise plan a notch or two in hopes of helping me achieve my goal. Overall, I’m feeling really good these days and it’s exciting to see the finish line just ahead.

One of my favorite workouts in recent weeks has been with TRX cables. These are suspension cables that enable you to get a great overall workout in a single spot. We worked out every major muscle group last week during a 40 minute session.

Yesterday I did a brisk 50 minutes of cardio on the treadmill. More cardio is on today’s schedule: bike for 30 minutes, row for ten minutes and finish with 20 minutes on the stair machine. I just wish I didn’t sweat so much. I’ll probably take a beach towel to the gym today to soak it all up!
