BLC Weekend Challenge #1 - 12 week plan
Sunday, September 16, 2012
As you can see, I have not been posting any blogs lately. I need to get back on it. Luckily for me, the first weekend challenge includes posting a blog.
Quick note, I usually weigh in on Sundays and then post a blog to go with the weigh ins but for the BLC we weigh in on Wednesdays so I am switching to Wednesdays. My starting weight was 243 lbs. Yep, I gained. It's ok though. I will get the weight back off. It should be cooling off here soon so I can start exercising. But I really need to get my eating back under control.
MY 12 WEEK PLAN
I will lose 24 lbs in 12 weeks by exercising 3 days a week, strength training 2 days and week and tracking my calories. I will see the progress by the consistent decline on the scale and looser fitting clothing.
MY FITNESS PLAN
I will exercise 3 days a week by either going to the gym, walking/running around my apartments or dancing around like a lunatic in my bedroom to loud music. Regardless of which option I choose, I will spent at least 45 minutes doing it on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I will also strength train 2 days a week. I will match that up to the TNT schedule of Tuesday and Thursdays. My goal is to burn a minimum of 2800 calories per my bodybugg which will be worn daily and complete a total of 10,000 steps daily.
MY NUTRITIONAL PLAN
I will log my calories every day. Good or bad. Whatever I eat, will be entered into my food tracker. I will attempt to eat no more than 2000 calories for the first 2 weeks. The remaining 9 weeks I will attempt to eat no more than 1800 calories. I will take my lunch to work with me 3 days a week and on the 4th day, I will allow myself to eat either Subway or Chipotle. I will continue to drink my protein shake for breakfast on the days I work and will eat a small breakfast on the days I do not work. I will spend the first 2 weeks not eating any sweets. No ice cream, cake, cupcakes, etc. I need to break this sugar addiction I've recently acquired. I will take a minimum of one fruit and one veggie for snacks at work and on the days I do not work, I will eat one fruit and one veggie (this has been difficult for me). On the weekends, I will try a new healthy recipe.
