My massage therapist knew just what to say to motivate me. A challenge, a race, I'm all for it! Just gives me more drive
I told him tonight, I've been really been struggling this month getting on track with eating and exercising. I've had 3 faults starts this month, and last year I was on track by 1/18/10, and going strong.
``` The Challenge``` by Feb 28th
Me: -10 lbs
Him: -16 lbs
See it's only fair as it is proven that men lose weight faster than
We both have about the same amount of weight to lose in general (for body size/height). This is a race and there is a prize :) So it is ONNN!!!!
QUESTION for my Sparkyfriends??
Should I lift light weights in combination with the cardio (which I did last year), to lose weight faster? Asking as I know sometimes lifting weights can show as a gain on the scale.
-As a side note, when eating right and working out like I should, I typically lose 4-6lbs a month. So I'm going to really have to push to hit 10 lbs in 34 days!
GOALS to achieve this:
1. 90oz of water a day (currently drink 40-50oz)
2. Make my large morning coffee a small & work on fazing it out
3. Exercise 6 days a week (min. 45 mins) (when on track was doing 4x wk)
4. Eating out no more than 3 meals per week
(currently eat out 5 days a week for lunch, twice a week weekday nights, and 2-3 times over the weekend)
5. Daily Affirmations :)
