Time to update my numbers, dust off my running shoes, and get ready to rock!
First up: I need to update my goal, tracking, and weight numbers. One of the biggest reasons for me to join the 5% fall challenge is that I've been really lax about sticking to exercise and food plans all summer, and it shows. Those scale numbers are sliding upwards, and the endurance and muscle that I was working so hard to gain? Slipping away.
So, I'm updating the scale tracker. (Ouch.) Not as bad as it could be, and a good reminder that I need to drink water, stick to the nutrition plan, and TRACK IT ALL. Accountability, baby. Here we go.
For the fall 5% challenge: I will be working to lose 10 pounds over 8 weeks.
Start date: October 12
End date: December 7
Goal to eat 1200-1550 calories per day
Goal to burn 1120 calories per week
Goal to go from 160 to 150 by 12/07/2013
5% Challenge Commitment - Plan
So with 30 or more minutes daily exercise, and eating between 1200-1550 calories a day, and drinking 8 glasses or more of water every day, I will lose 10 pounds in 8 weeks.
Exercise time= "me time"-- I need to remember that sometimes it is OK to concentrate on myself, and to work towards being the healthiest version of myself that I can be. Time to do this thing.
