BLC22 was successful for me: seeing me reach my goal weight of 140. This round, I would like to maintain. 140 would be at the high end of my range, and 135 at the low end. I guess that 137/138 would be ideal.
In addition to maintaining my weight, I would also like to continue to add muscle tone. I'd like more definition in my upper body, and a little more in my lower. So, more strength training for me. I am dealing with a shoulder injury that I hope to begin to resolve this round. The plan is to visit the doctor to look at alternatives. I could also work with an excellent personal trainer I have used in the past. I'll maintain my cardio, as it is both a calorie burner and a stress reducer/energizer. I'll continue to get up early each morning to ensure that I fit my exercise in.
Last round, I set a goal of tracking my food at least four days a week. I actually tracked consistently for five. Even though I am looking at maintaining, I think I should continue with this approach.
I still need to work on getting enough water each day. I'm aiming for 9 glasses, or three of the large cup I carry around all day.
I'd like to get back to paper and pen journaling as a healthy way to deal with stress.
I'd like to explore a new hobby. I'm thinking learning a language.
I'd like to spend a few minutes each day de-cluttering. An organized house would add to my peace.
