I'm a former college athlete (soccer) but have a bum knee now and have been told I should taper back on my favorite calorie-scorching activity - running :( I ran Disney Marathon in January 2010 and qualified for Boston. Now I'm training for Boston, but trying to keep things as low-impact as possible. Follow my journey here:
REALITY CHECK TODAY - I am 5'7, 152 lbs, and 21.9% body fat. I have lost about 9 lbs in about 4 months. Not bad, but I think with SP I can reach my goals of cutting some body fat, getting more toned and getting a handle on my borderline binge eating (luckily I have no issues with purging - it just doesn't happen).
Measurements as of 11/29/10
- Weight 152 lbs
- Shoulder 42
- Waist 30.5
- Waist (BB flub) 34 3/8********* This is what I wish to work on!
- Hips 39 5/16
- Thigh 20 7/8
- Calf 14 ½
- Bicep 11 ½
- Forearm 10
I love cooking and baking and eating and spending time with my friends and family. I like to surround myself with people who also want to live a healthy, fulfilling, and positive life!
Weight: Keep it around 140-145
Life: Lifelong student and become an astronaut
-Going to do at least 45 minutes 6 days per week
-Walking, elliptical, cycling, spinning, swimming, rowing, and just a little running!
-Core work every other day
-30-60 full-body strength training 3-4 days per week
I'm trying to get down to 145 (my high school graduation weight) from 152. Trying to keep a ~500 calorie deficit (!between 1400-1800 per day depending on exercise).
I'm from Florida! Got 1st in my age group (25-29) in the Space Coast half marathon in 2009, and ran a Boston Qualifying time (3:40:47) at Disney marathon in January 2010! I'm writing about my training activities leading up to April 18, 2011 Boston Marathon here: http://www.meganscope.com/low_impact_marat
