Maintenance + Strength Training + Cardio = constant reconfiguring!

Sunday, June 07, 2009

The title says it all.

I keep my Goal Calories the same but adjust daily for Cardio which burns calories.

The increased Strength Training is what makes my weight fluctuate. But I am tackling the Lunges and Squats seriously now to firm up my legs. I managed to do 30 Walking Lunges yesterday as well as about that many regular Lunges. Did Squats intermittently during the day.

Mind you, I will never have 18 year old legs - heck, I didn't have them when I was 18! But if I can get my jiggle under control a little more, by golly I will at least try.

Good day to all!

    Good job! You're a real inspiration!

The increased strength training will firm you up, so don't be afraid of the weight fluctuations.

    Linda, You continue to INSPIRE!

I, too, am at the maintenance point. At least I think I am. That point is not written in stone but my body seems to be telling me that this is it. Now I am working even more intently on those jiggles.

Your unwavering motivation is so uplifting! The challenge to keep these good habits intact seems daunting at times. When I feel a little shaky, I look at what you're doing and get fired up all over again. This is the blessing - to be able to lift each other and be lifted ourselves to achieve
goals we thought were impossible!

    I could not do all these lunges. My hip would be screaming. But I do admire your ability to change and continue to be successful. You rock girlfriend!

    You keep on trying every day and you inspire me! I am trying more strength training, too. It seems to be working.
