12 week plan

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

It's that time again! Time to think about the next 12 weeks and what I want to accomplish.
I so desperately want to get back on track after the accident and I've been planning on getting back on track. I was doing well until 2 weeks ago when my son got sick and then I got it and then my back started hurting again. I'm finally feeling like myself and I am ready to get back to it.
I really want to lose 2 pounds per week putting me at a total loss of 24 pounds for the round that would be ideal. It's going to take work and focus. I really need to focus on at least 30 preferably 60 mins of exercise per day. I still have a couple sessions left with my personal trainer that I have every intention of taking advantage of as she has been a wonderful help to me in getting started on the right track. Thankfully the gym I joined has numerous classes every day that will keep my body guessing and not doing the same thing every day. I love love love Zumba and my favorite instructor teaches on Tuesday and Thursday mornings at 9:30 am. I don't have classes at all on Tuesday and Thursday so this is ideal. I'm looking forward to trying out the step class and a group weightlifting class as well. I already am hooked on a class that combines yoga and pilates. I haven't been in a couple of weeks and I am ready to go back I miss the way it makes me feel. I feel so much stronger and more limber after class.
I also HAVE to get back on track with my eating. That has gotten out of control. I need to plan my meals b/c I am so super busy during the week with school, job hunting, and getting my little guy to and from school that dinner turns into "what can I fix quick?" as I have a 5 year old that has to get in bed by a certain time or else he doesn't like to get up. That is going to be my number one goal during this round is planning and tracking my meals.
If anyone has any input and/or suggestions please share them I'm totally open.

    We are heading into crockpot season here. Throw everything in it in the morning and do what you need to do all day. Come home and serve it up! Also one pot clean up! There are some good recipes here on SparkPeople.

    I make a meal plan for the month (or you could do it bi weekly depending on your finances).

    Then on Sundays I batch cook things for breakfast. At first it was just things like muffins, banana bread, or what I call egg cups (put a piece of turkey bacon or lunchmeat in the bottom of a muffin tin, crack an egg onto the ham, and then place the muffin tin in the oven for x amount of minutes). I'd cook them up, let them cool, and freeze them.

    You could also do something similar with dinners (i.e. soups, chili, casseroles, etc). So then when you get home all you have to do is pop whatever in the oven and tada dinner is done!
