3 Things I need to Change for the Next Challenge

Saturday, October 20, 2012

1. I do not like Strength Training and I tend to avoid it. I am going to make this part of my weekly routine. Start small and work up to 4 times per week.

2. Police the "portion control" beast that I have in me. Make inroads into taming that beast. I even tend to go overboard with foods that are good for me, like Freggies.

3. Get back to Physical Therapy so that I can start exercising again. Working the knee, the ankle, etc. I need and want to ride the bike again.

    Can you do the Leslie Sansone DVD's? She has several with light weights or bands that are good ST and cardio. As you get stronger you can switch to heavier dumb bells and still do the same moves. It is mostly low impact (you can walk through the "boosted" jogging) so it may still work for the leg, knee and ankle.

    And if you cook them healthy or eat them raw, I don't think you can over-do the veggies. Fruit maybe, because of the carbs. You can do it!

    Great goals. ST is one of mine too. I know how good it feels when I"m doing it... but seems so hard to get into the weekly habit. I like doing the exercises in Mark Lauren's "Your Are Your Own Gym", so I'm going to start there. Have you thought about what kind of ST you're going to do? At the gym or at home?

    These all sound like great goals! emoticon Since you don't like strength training, have you thought about a workout dvd that has strength training it it, but doesn't completely focus on just that? It may be a way to get it in without feeling like that's all you're doing! Whatever you choose, you'll do great in your next challenge! emoticon emoticon

    my sister walks 15,000 steps a day at 63 years
    old and has lost 105 pounds. she went from a size 24 to a size 10. all her health issues dropped off as the 105 pounds dropped off. took 16 months.

    i gave up grain and sugary products and have lost 44 pounds at age 60. i went from a size 18 to a size 10 shorts and medium tops from a 1 or 2x. took 7 months.

    use a salad plate as a dinner plate

    use fruit for your sweet tooth cravings, an apple works great. helps with the chewing sensation.

    fill your salad plate with half vegetables.

    we are both still loosing weight until we reach our goal
