Working it OUT


Friday, March 15, 2013

I just realized that I have not posted a blog this week. This has become a ritual for me and helped a lot during my weight loss. So I thought I better stick with the routine- not change it if its not broken right emoticon

This week I started a new challenge for myself. I am calling it the Spring Forward Challenge since it started on Daylight savings time. Here are some of the goals

#1 Fitness emoticon
Burn 2,000-2,500 calories a week.
Working out 5 days a week
So I counting my workout tomorrow I will be at 2,010 calories burned for the week emoticon I restarted the Billy Blanks PT 24/7 program this week. Plus I ordered Hip Hob Abs since I kept seeing the t.v. for the $30 price. It is at the post office waiting for me to pick it up tomorrow. I am sticking to my workout schedule and having fun emoticon

#2 Food Intake emoticon
5 days a week eat within my weight loss range (1200-1550)
2 days a week eat within maintenance range (1500-1800)
This week I have averaged about 1350 calories during the week! My 2 days to increase my calories should be fine, I just need to remind myself to track BEFORE I eat to make sure I am not over doing it emoticon

#3 Weigh In emoticon
Weigh in ONCE a week.
Finding other ways to measure success- like how my clothes fit and building strength through my workouts

Ok so I did sneak on the scale this morning emoticon . Curiosity got the better of me. I am getting stronger- I am able to do most of the push-ups during my PT workouts emoticon Plus I have been able to do more of the workout without stopping! emoticon

I am a good place both physically and mentally. emoticon Wishing you all the best on your journey emoticon
