Whittling Down My Waist.

I lost 30 pounds a few years ago, and I've crept up seven or eight pounds above my new "normal" weight, so it's time to whip myself back into shape. This time, I'd like to finally get down to my ultimate goal weight, five pounds below where I stopped last time.

My Goals:
I'd like to finally get down to my goal weight after losing 30 points two years ago. I got a stress fracture from too much running last spring, and I've struggled to get back into a fitness routine since then.

My Program:
I think I'm finally back on track. I've been much better about sticking to my SparkPeople calorie recommendation of 1200-1550 a day since I gave up desserts along with a lot of other people on the 10-15 Pounds to Lose team. It's amazing how many calories you can cut just by eliminating sweets!

I work out anywhere from 5-7 days a week. I usually do two five-mile runs on Tuesday and Thursday mornings and then a longer run (anywhere from 7-12ish miles) on the weekend. I manage two weight-training sessions, and I try to vary other forms of cardio with step aerobics, water aerobics and spinning. I'm also trying to manage at least one yoga or Pilates class each week.

I can't wait for summer when I have a bit more time to do some of the other classes at the gym.

aw! i'm your first comment...

thanks for your comment on my blog! sorry for mentioning the b-word. or the c-word. but seriously, if you've never tried the no-pudge, you really need to. when you're off your no-dessert kick, of course. ;D

i don't usually have much of a sweet tooth, but every now and then i get a craving for something sweet that just won't go away. it's usually for something with the c-word in it. so i'm so glad i found these.

i see you do some running (or used to do a lot of running?) i have always wished that i could run and incorporate it into what i'm doing, but i find it really hard to breathe. i don't have any other problem with it- my legs don't hurt, i don't get too tired- i always end up stopping after a short time because i can't breathe. what do you suggest??
