Good plan Cyndi! It's easy to get all wrapped up in the gusto of a new year and by week two you're all pooped out. Goals have to be easily attainable...or our human nature will take over and failure is inevitable.
I am in maintenance, but I have gained a little weight over the holidays that I intend to lose quickly.
My goal for the next 2 weeks is to lose the holiday weight gain (about 10 pounds). This may seem lofty, but I have done this before and I know that once I correct my eating, about half will drop off within a couple days (water weight).
To do this I will:
Drink a minimum of 64 ounces of calorie-free beverage a day
Work out 3 days a week (two home workouts, one class at the gym or something outdoors)
Eat 1200 calories M-TH, 1500 Fri, Sat, Sun; Carbs below 150; Sodium below 1500mg (17 day food tracking streak starts 1/2/2013)
Reassess my plan/goals the weekend of 1/19/2013; allow myself a food break for the holiday weekend
