BLC20: This Panther's 12 Week Plan

Sunday, September 16, 2012

The only full length mirror in my house is a half-blind one on the inside of my linen closet door. It was there when we bought the house some 20 years ago... Before pic here:

I don't sport a 'muffin top' but consider my legs my weakest point. So this is as revealing as I need to be, hehe.
"Strong" legs run in my family and it finally hit home that agonizing over things you cannot change is quite pointless. So instead I choose to tone and strengthen. While I would love to eventually see a 1" reduction (22" to 21"), I refuse to waste my energy on a number.

My 12 week plan:

emoticon Fitness:
I'm a weekend hiker and schedule one hike each weekend, either Saturday or Sunday. I hike with a group and hikes generally range from 8 - 15 miles.
During the week I do Zumba, yoga, kickboxing, and now TNT
My fitness plan works for me and I intend to keep it up during this challenge and beyond.

emoticon Food:
Lots of room for improvement here. I do not track my food but am doing well as far as calorie intake is concerned. Nutritional intake, well, that's another story. I'm on a quest to incorporate more veggies and fruits into my day, but am mostly failing.

During the week I brown bag both my breakfast and my lunch. Plan is to plan better and instead of mindlessly throwing something together in a hurry the morning of, spend some time the night before and pack a proper breakfast and lunch.

emoticon Daily steps and general activity level
I find that while I'm extremely active during my scheduled exercise times, I'm extremely lazy the rest of the time.
Okay, I work an office job that has me in front of a computer most of the time. I do make it a point to get up and move around as much as I can.
But during the times that I'm actually at home I find that I spend way too much time being completely inactive (shame on you, Netflix... ha!)

I'm a new fitbit user (had it for under a week), and I see it as a great tool by which to measure my step count, floors climbed, as well as my active score.
Currently my average daily steps come in at around 7,500.

Increase average daily steps to 10,000
Daily floors climbed 15
Active score 100%

That's all folks.
300 points for the team.
Go Panthers!
