I work out 4 days a week after I get off work at 12:30 am and I will be working on Thanksgiving so I don't/won't have too worry about the indulgence of the family meal... In a way thats good since I just made my goal weight a month ago and I will still be going to the gym tomorrow night as well
You've got to say, I think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough I can have it. It's called perseverance.
Two years now. I'm a smidge over my goal weight, but my body seems to like this weight better, even if I don't. I don't have to fight as much to keep my weight right here where it is, but if I go lower, it's a constant battle. So although I don't like it as much, I've decided that as long as I'm eating mostly healthy and working out 6 days a week, I'll have to deal with it. This group used to be quite active, but I rarely hear from anyone anymore. How long have you been maintaining?
Great idea! My goals won't be that detailed, but I will workout daily, including running 20 miles minimum per week. I will pay more attention to my calorie intake, and add more strength training to my workouts! Thanks for the reminder to put fitness first!
I hope all of you are doing well. This group has been deafeningl y quiet! LOL
Well, it's that lovely time of year again - just 13 short days before Thanksgiving here in the U.S. For many of us maintainers, this can be a particularly tough time to stay on track. I've found that it's easier for me to say "no" to seconds if I've ramped up to the Thanksgiving holidays with a special and ddedicated focus to fitness. To that end, I would like to invite all of you to be part of the 2-Weeks 'Til Thanksgiving Countdown Challenge with me!
The goal of this countdown challenge is to refocus our energy on getting/staying fit before the holidays!
You can choose to use the same challenge goals below or create some for your own! The only requirements are to post your goals daily and what you have done to reach your goals.
Here are my goals for each day: -workout every morning for 45-60 minutes -3 days of strength training per week -cut all sweets, except sugar free gum -no eating past 8:30 pm -whey protein shake every morning -consume no more than 1200 calories plus however many calories I burn during my workouts. (for example: Today I burned 400 cals during my morning workout. So I will eat no more than a total of 1600 calories.) -drink 64 ounces of water daily -consume no more than 1600 mg of sodium daily -do something fun just for me each day that is not related to food or watching television
