Well, it's June and I'm definitely not where I had hoped I would be. However, I have not kept up my end of the bargain by following my nutrition plan. I've been fine in the working out area---my nemesis is my nutrition. I give myself treats here and there, that just turn into more and more often. I basically self-sabotage all of my efforts in the gym by eating up all of the calories I burn. But hey--it's a new month and I'm ready to start afresh! I haven't really gained weight; I've just stalled. So, June is going to be my month---my month to eat within my calorie limits 90% of the time and intensify my workouts slightly. I plan to follow the calorie cycling plan that was set up for me which is:
I've also added running into my routine. So, I'm going to stick with my three day per week strength training plan (I'm on week 7 of a 12 week plan), and I'm going to add running 2-3 times per week. I'll also be going to some classes at the Y with my sister-in-law who has recently joined and is excited about going; I plan to borrow some of her enthusiasm. All-in-all, I believe June will be my break-out month. I plan to make great strides in June and "unleash my new body". That is the quote that is on my inspiration board. Well, hope your June proves to be as successful for you as I know mine will be for me.
