What: Is to maintain below 149.8lbs and have a bodyfat between 17-19%
Where: Not sure how to answer this one but I’ll say in my life
When: For the rest of my live
How: By eliminating processed food and eating food as close to their natural state as possible. Keep my Carb/Protein ration 1:1 and no more than 1.2:1. Also making sure my macros are Fat, Protein and Carbs 33%.
Also Strength training heavy enough that I can only perform 8-12lbs and then after that 6-8 reps.
Why: Now that I’m at goal, I need to find a lifestyle of eating that will keep me within my range and not yo-yo up and down the scale. I also want to tone up my body and not be so flabby.
How much: Stay away from my intolerant food –No Gluten, Dairy, Eggs, and Onions
How Often: Follow the ½ marathon training program. On my non-run days, strength train.
How Many: I will not focus only on calories but make sure that I’m eating the right mix of food.
I have a gym membership. I also have exercise dvds at home as well as hand weights and dumbbells. I also have an affordable dietitian that I can make an appointment with if I need help with making healthy food choices.
I know that I will be able to average a maintenance weight of under 150lbs.
This is a lifetime goal and it will take a lifetime to figure out what works for me to stay within my maintenance range.
As SparkCoach Nicole says BE POSITIVE – Focus on what I will do rather than what I won’t do. Track successes instead of failures.
