Barbara - Maintenance Mode

As you can probably tell from the title of my page, I am in maintenance. I've been in maintenance since October, 2010. This is my second time at maintenance and I learned that I still need to watch what I eat and exercise consistently if I want to stay at the weight and health level I am currently.

As far as eating is concerned, there are places that I can improve. I drink way too much Diet Pepsi. I like the energy drink NOS and I probably eat way more salt and fat than I ...
As you can probably tell from the title of my page, I am in maintenance. I've been in maintenance since October, 2010. This is my second time at maintenance and I learned that I still need to watch what I eat and exercise consistently if I want to stay at the weight and health level I am currently.

As far as eating is concerned, there are places that I can improve. I drink way too much Diet Pepsi. I like the energy drink NOS and I probably eat way more salt and fat than I should. Those are areas to work on in the coming year.

For 2013, my fitness goals are similar to 2010 and 2011 and 2012, since I didn't reach them! I want to do at least one unassisted pull up. I would like to continue my freshly restarted lifting program so that my arms have definition. Ultimate goal is to not have "flapping" underarms, but not sure if that is a possibility without surgery. And I'm not having surgery!

For eating, I will work on decreasing my dependency on Diet Pepsi and energy drinks. I have done better with both, but they are still part of my diet. I will continue my quest in making the food choices about my health and well being, not just my weight. I would like to eat even fewer processed foods than I do now.

Above all, I want to continue to be a good example for my kids. My son actually told me the other day that it's easy for me to eat healthy because I don't like to eat. LOL! I explained to him that I LOVE to eat, but I have learned to eat smaller portions and avoid some foods. I don't think he believed me, but we're working on it.

Stop by and say hi if you get the time. And good luck on your journey.

My Goals:
Perform at least one unassisted pull-up by October 31, 2013.

Eat to fuel my body and my life, not just be below my calorie range.

Participate in at least two 5k's with my kids by the end of the year.

My Program:
Cardio 6 days per week.

Lift four times per week. Two for upper body, two for lower body.

Walk for at least two minutes every hour during work hours - and sometimes on weekends if I remember!

Barb I read this and I thought "Oh my! Really?"

I knew your DS is celiac, but I didn't know DD hates meat and veggies, DH only likes meat and desserts.

I don't know how you do everything you do! You are wonderful to your family! emoticon
