I am sort of taking part in the Fabulous Fitness (FB) 90-Day Challenge. I say "sort of" because I'm not fully participating. For this challenge there are cash prizes for the "most improved." I'm not really interested in that. Carolyn1213 has gone to the trouble of setting up some menus and nutrition plans, but I've found what works for me (When I actually follow my plan!!), so I will be using my own plan.
Here's a link to the Fabulous Fitness Facebook Page www.facebook.com/groups/
in case you're interested.
We're also running the challenge (without the cash prizes - sorry) on Sparkpeople... Here's a link... www.sparkpeople.com/mysp
My "before" photos can be found here... www.sparkpeople.com/mypa
And my Friday measurements are
Smallest waist area: 28
Anyway, here's my goals and my plan to reach them!!
1. Stick to my nutrition plan.
And that is.... Five meals/day
Oatmeal with a handful of berries, and eggs (3 whites, one yolk) for breakfast
Fruit or non-starchy veggies with lean protein, eggs, nuts or nut butter, occasionally cheese for other meals.
One protein shake/day
Every week I can have grains or starchy veggies (sweet potato, squash, carrots, potatoes) at 3 additional meals - making 10 in all.
I'm not going to stress out if I can't follow this perfectly.... I plan to eat this way for the rest of my life, and things happen... I might want ice cream sometime... who knows. When I go camping in a couple of weeks, I don't expect perfection... In fact, I expect Jiffy Pop and s'mores!
(This was last fall at Laurentian Lodge, just north of here)
2. Build muscle, lose fat
I have my own workout schedule that looks like this:
Monday: Lower Body, Cardio
Wednesday: Upper Body, Cardio
Thursday: Yoga, Light Cardio (walking)
Saturday: Full Body, Light Cardio
I've found I really benefit from the 2 rest days... I was finding a lot less pain than when I only took one.
3. Blog daily or every 2 days
It helps me keep track of where I've been and where I'm going.
4. Encourage and try to motivate others.
I feel this is very important because if I can help someone else on their journey I want to do that.
