Holiday Plan!!!

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

1. Keep on MOVIN!
Exercise at least 6 days a week (to include 3-4 days of running and 3 strength training sessions). Goal is to burn 2,000 calorise a week through fitness.


2. Fill up on FREGGIES!
Strive to eat 7 servings of freggies each day. Look for ways to include more vegetables (rather than fruit). Try some new healthy veggie filled recipes.


3. No TREATs during the WEEK!
Elminate candy, alchohol, ice cream, cookies, cakes and sweet breads during the week. Allow a small indulgence on the weekend and holidays.


4. TRACK it!
Track everything everyday. Hold myself accountable and stay in range!


5. MAINTAIN
The goal for December will be to maintain a weight of 139 or less (weigh in on Wednesday).


I know for me, I NEED a plan and accountability (even if it is just myself) to be successful!!!
