Now that I've achieved my goals I plan to maintain with a healthy balance of cross training. Eating small meals throughout the day has been essential toward boosting my metabolism. More important is keeping a moderate amount of slow digesting carbs in my diet to promote muscle while burning fat.
Eating fresh fruits, veggies, whole grains, chicken and fish is the key to maintaining my weight. Occasionally I eat red meat to provide a little variety.
I exercise early morning and afternoon. I limit each workout to 90 minutes max and perform cardio separate from strength training. I train at least 5 to 6 days a week. I also take off an entire week from all exercises after 4 to 6 weeks of training.
I live in Missouri but am in Texas for a few months. My husband is a traveling Physical Therapist contracting three to six months statewide. I bounce between Texas and Missouri. Eventually I plan to go back to school and become a Physical Therapist as well.
I am a retired Marine and am fortunate to devote so much time toward working out. However, I used to train early morning, work 8-10 hours and train again at night. I find retirement leads to boredom and increased snacking. It's important to balance all aspects of your life to achieve goals.
