Oh my aching body...

Saturday, October 24, 2009

I feel the burn! It's a good burn but still, wow! I'm back to exercising and my muscles are confused lol. I've made some new, short term goals. From now until Christmas I am aiming to have a calorie allotment of 1,200 a day and I want to burn 2,500 a week. This should help me to lose 2-3 lbs a week. The exercising part I think will be very doable but the eating will be my challenge. I am thinking about replacing lunch with a slim fast or something along those lines. Any ideas?

    I used to do a slim fast shake and fruit for breakfast but was always hungry in 3 hours or so, and not just for a snack! lol. Sounds like you've set some great food and exercise goals, and that you know it's going to be a challenge. Damn holidays!! lol. Good luck!!

    I wish you the best of luck, just make sure you are eating enough to have energy to get a great work out in! You have been doing this a long time so I know you get the idea of how many calories you need to eat to have enough for your workouts. Eat alot of fiber from fruit and veggies b/c they will help in your work outs and in your weight lose.

    Glad you are back on track. The slimfast substitution sounds good. I am addicted to the strawberry ones.
Sorry I don't have any advice for you. I still don't know what the heck I am doing yet.
