Home Gym more reps or more weight?
Work on mixing up muscle endurance & strength focused days. You need to work on weight increases to increase strength. Getting toned WILL take a focused nutrition effort. Track your food for better results.

I couldn't even sleep well last night- tossing and turning thinking about Carbs and counting... This is stressful! I have not been hungry since I started the program but man I find myself daydreaming about carbs... I am sure it's that way no matter what diet you follow. It can be hard!

Please please please make sure you are not cutting ALL carbs. Fruits & veggies are needed so keep them in! Cravings are natural, but in moderation, especially if it is more unhealthy snacks. I sometimes will guzzle a glass of water and brush my teeth, to keep me from unwanted snacking.

A few questions for you...

Are you tracking your food? If you aren't, I suggest you start. It is how you are going to know and become aware of what you're eating

Are you working out enough? If you are not, start small. If you are, are you changing up your routine? As a personal trainer, I always recommend professional assistance to give you a jump start.

How much weight are you trying to lose?
Is there an underlying issue other then the weight loss??

I have clients all the time who want it off now, but the way I approach it is I am quick to point out those successes along the way. Balance improvements, looser clothes, more energy, ease of performing exercises. All of these will be super important to staying on track Smile

I am an avid coffee drinker sans all the extra added sugar. No reason coffee should stunt your weight loss goals. Be careful however, that it does not affect your sleep schedule because that can affect your weight loss. AND try not to drink coffee with meals because the coffee can actually inhibit your body's ability to absorb certain nutrients. Doing this WILL affect your goal attainment. Smile

Caffeine can help give you a jump before a workout and it has zero calories. Just watch the amount and the timing, and you should be good to go

Join me on this diet!
What exactly is this new diet plan? I hope it isn't restrictive to the point where there is a relapse.
