Reaching maintenance doesn't mean I can now slack off. I've cut back on exercise from 60 minutes to 30 minutes. I still track my food in a written journal and have started tracking on Spark again.
My biggest downfall is sweets! I plan on purging my house once again of all my sweet triggers. I always feel physically awful after I indulge so why do it? I do very well with food during the week. I pre-pack all my lunches for the week ahead of time and I eat the same thing for breakfast every day (a smoothie) so I set that up the night before. My weekends are the hardest, DH always wants to go out to eat on the weekend, I try to come up with interesting meals at home instead but it doesn't always work. I'm very salt sensitive so eating out always nets me a gain.
My exercise has been spot on the last month so I plan to continue with my 3x a week ST. I found a number of great workouts in my Oxygen magazines so I will continue to do those along with cardio (this has suffered) on the other days. I know I have to increase my cardio and increase the speed and incline on the treadmill. I will slowly increase them throughout the round.
