Goals For BLC 20

Saturday, September 15, 2012

Okay. I'm finally getting around to this post.

I have been very consistent with exercise. I get up early each morning to fit in my cardio. Since I've been back at work, my strength training hasn't been as consistent. I'd like to make sure that I get in at least two strength training session a week. Three would be even better. It might also be time to meet with my PT again to add some challenge. An injured shoulder is a bit of a hindrance. (I need to visit my physician (again) about this.) Strength training is an important goal because I'd like to tone up a bit more, and I love that it will rev. up my metabolism.

Of course, I'd like to maintain my cardio sessions.

In terms of weight, I would like at least to maintain during BLC20, and I wouldn't mind losing about five more pounds.

Over the summer, I have done a good job of eating LOTS of fruits and veggies, and making meals at home. I am much busier now that I am back to work, so I would like to set a goal of continuing to plan my meals so that they are full of the good stuff and homemade.

I do eat well, but a challenge for me will be to work on portion control. I can also work on reducing the extra treats I allow myself in addition to my healthy food. I am sure that they are undoing a lot of my hard work.

    ST is hard with a shoulder injury. I've been though that twice. Good luck. Good plan. You can do it!

    Heather, you seem to have a handle on what you're doing well and what you need to work on. Going back to work does present its challenges, but you've got this! emoticon emoticon
