New year, new weight goal

Sunday, January 05, 2014

This year I plant to participate in a major sport event, which takes place at the end of summer.
Knowing, that I reach my best sports performance around 50-51 kg, this will be my weight goal for this year. I intend to reach the weight goal during the last phase of my preparation, rather than do it gradually. I would however like to start to monitor my eating already now to avoid a weight gain.

The last couple of months I have been training according to my plan and eating rather freely, which resulted in some small weight gain with respect to the lowest weight I reached earlier in the autumn. It takes some time to get used to the hard training regime and the appetite that comes with it.

    Thank you MEDDYPEDDY, I am sure you could, it is a matter of motivation and also as you say, to be on the right spot in life.

The last couple of years my training was not really focused for various reasons one of them being a transition between a long-term but temporary and a permanent job. Such thing (and similar) can draw way too much attention and energy, leaving relatively little for serious sports commitments. My main goal during that time was to reach and maintain some decent weight and body composition for which I used various training forms.

This year is different, I finally do have things sorted out and with that I have a chance to focus on a concrete sport goal. The unique motivation furthermore is that 2014 is the very last year before my age sends me to the veteran category. Sort of "the last chance", the good time to do it :)

    You are certainly in a totally different place in life than me, I have to admit that I envy you - I donīt think I really could submit to a hard training regime... good luck!
