Ambition is nothing if not paired with motivation.

I am a dreamer with more ambition than motivation. Without goal setting, list making, outlines, and overthought plans I honestly wouldn’t achieve much. My success relies on the confidence I have in a well laid plan. I haven’t utilized my last 6 months wisely. I made no plans and simply relied on my knowledge of what not to do and not so much of what needs to be done. The results has been maintaining my weight loss. Maintaining is good but it isn’t what I dream of. My dream is progress.

California gave me time to rethink my motivations, and my fitness goals. Although I returned home with a bad cold I’ve laid out a plan of action. It’s something to get excited about. When I get excited I know I’m that much closer to success. I’ve created a 7 week plan, to be completed by July 20, 2012. Anyone know what is so special about this date? Well, it’s the release date of The Dark Night Rises. In honor of my love for Batman and my new tattoo I am determined to lose 13 lbs and reach my newest goal of 145 lbs. SienaLyn will Rise!
I am already educated in the right things to eat that fit into my lifestyle and my personal preferences. I was shocked how easily writing out this meal plan was. I’ve decided to share my meal plan/options:

Dietary Needs:
Breakfast~ Oatmeal & Almonds, Eggs & Toast
Snack~ Banana, Small Green Smoothie, Protein, Fruit, Yogurt
Lunch~ Chicken & Veggies, Tuna, Salad, Large Green Smoothie
Snack~ Yam fries, Protein shake, Almonds,
Dinner~ Chicken, Fish, Steak, Veggies, Asparagus, Yam, Wheat
Late night snack~ Cottage Cheese, Almonds, Tea
**allowance of any veggies, my after workout protein shakes, and 1 flavoured water per day. When it comes to alcohol I know I should avoid it bc it does slow down metabolism as well as add useless calories. Due to this being summer I am leaving any drinking as a day to day judgment call.

I am already educated in which workouts are needed and which ones I will stick with. I enjoy lifting weights, and kickboxing is my favorite core targeting cardio 20-45 min. I’ve decided to post this plan as well:

Fitness Goals:

Monday~*morning Boxing evening Lifting Upper Body
Tuesday~* morning Boxing evening Core Workout
Wednesday~* morning Boxing evening Lifting Lower Body
Thursday~* morning Boxing evening Core Workout
Friday~ morning Run evening Lifting Upper Body
Saturday~ morning Run evening Core Workout
Sunday~ morning Run evening Lifting Lower Body
**recovery days as needed but no more than 2x week. Weekend I may substitute activities.

This plan fits into my lifestyle nicely. I can keep with being a mommy, working as a seamstress, and on my business. As well as home upkeep, personal projects, beauty regimen, spark people, and my fitblr.
I am keeping this simple.

Coming this July, 2012 SienaLyn Rises
