Now that Thanksgiving is in my rear view mirror, I'm looking ahead to the next two events which could wreak havoc on my consistency: my son's birthday and Christmas.
So I'm doing what I can to avoid too much disruption, and re-focusing my efforts by participating in the #SparkTheSeason challenge (here's a link: http://www.sparkpeople.com/blo
res_how) For the next month my goals are:
*Weigh myself on Mondays and Thursdays.
*Go running 12 times over the next 26 days - work towards my 5k goal.
*Do a workout video on the days I don't run.
*Log my food & work at finding my maintenance caloric intake sweet spot.
The last one is probably my highest priority. Before Thanksgiving, I was continuing to lose weight eating in the middle of the caloric intake levels Spark was recommending for me. Weird as it may sound, right now, I'm finding it challenging to eat more than 1600 calories in a day. Its still early days for maintaining for me (what is this, week 4?) and I've still got plenty of tweaking to do as I settle into this new phase.
