BLC20: This Panther's 12 Week Plan

Sunday, September 16, 2012

The only full length mirror in my house is a half-blind one on the inside of my linen closet door. It was there when we bought the house some 20 years ago... Before pic here:

I don't sport a 'muffin top' but consider my legs my weakest point. So this is as revealing as I need to be, hehe.
"Strong" legs run in my family and it finally hit home that agonizing over things you cannot change is quite pointless. So instead I choose to tone and strengthen. While I would love to eventually see a 1" reduction (22" to 21"), I refuse to waste my energy on a number.

My 12 week plan:

emoticon Fitness:
I'm a weekend hiker and schedule one hike each weekend, either Saturday or Sunday. I hike with a group and hikes generally range from 8 - 15 miles.
During the week I do Zumba, yoga, kickboxing, and now TNT

My fitness plan works for me and I intend to keep it up during this challenge and beyond.

emoticon Food:
Lots of room for improvement here. I do not track my food but am doing well as far as calorie intake is concerned. Nutritional intake, well, that's another story. I'm on a quest to incorporate more veggies and fruits into my day, but am mostly failing.

During the week I brown bag both my breakfast and my lunch. Plan is to plan better and instead of mindlessly throwing something together in a hurry the morning of, spend some time the night before and pack a proper breakfast and lunch.

emoticon Daily steps and general activity level
I find that while I'm extremely active during my scheduled exercise times, I'm extremely lazy the rest of the time.
Okay, I work an office job that has me in front of a computer most of the time. I do make it a point to get up and move around as much as I can.
But during the times that I'm actually at home I find that I spend way too much time being completely inactive (shame on you, Netflix... ha!)

I'm a new fitbit user (had it for under a week), and I see it as a great tool by which to measure my step count, floors climbed, as well as my active score.
Currently my average daily steps come in at around 7,500.

Goal:
Increase average daily steps to 10,000
Daily floors climbed 15
Active score 100%

That's all folks.
300 points for the team.
Go Panthers!
