So here's the plan:
I am 190 lbs. today. My goal weight is somewhere between 164 and 175. I would like to weigh 170 on New Years Eve. This is not a hard and fast rule however, because I'm more concerned with my body fat %, which is 30% now. I want it to be 24% and if it comes with a 178 lb body, so be it.
I will only weigh myself, and check my BF on Friday mornings for the next 20 weeks. I have been weighing randomly and it only leads to confusion and frustration.
I will not eat after 8 pm for the next 20 weeks. I've been snacking at night, mostly fruits and veggies, but I've realized that the REASONS I snack at night, whether it's chips or grapes, are the same. I want to find a way to replace the destructive, self soothing habit with a more constructive one. If I'm home, I'll do 15 minutes of Yoga or meditation. If I'm not home...I'll have to figure that one out.
I will do 40 Yoga sessions by the New Year. I love Yoga. It works for me. I want to incorporate it into my daily living. Some opportunities to sit in on classes on campus, and join the school's Yoga club have arisen and I'm going to take advantage.
My weekly work out goals will be as follows. Spin 3 days a week, 45-60 minutes. X-train 1 day a week, 45-60 minutes. Lift weights twice a week, 20-30 minutes. 60 minute Yoga session, twice a week, an 10-15 minute sessions daily.
That sounds like a l lot of time...I wonder how many years it will add to my life?
School starts in a week, as well as rehearsals and performances every night for 4 weeks. Sh!t is going to hit the fan. I'm going to have to work out in the morning. It's going to be hard. It's going to feel so good, and make my life so much easier.
*I reserve the right to re-evaluate these goals in a few weeks and make adjustments when necessary. This will help with my evil "All or nothing" mentality.
Ok, let's do this.
