Maintaining in May

Wednesday, May 01, 2013

emoticon to my first month of maintenance! Yeah I decided last week that I was finally ready to stop losing weight and set a range for maintenance. My maintenance range is 172-177 emoticon Right now I am about 177 but I think is mainly due to eating alot of salt and not drinking enough water- I am fixing that now.
Every month I set out to challenge myself by creating my own challenge goals. Well this month is no different. emoticon

Fitness emoticon
1. Earn 1,400 fitness minutes this month- I earned 1405 last month emoticon
2. Burn 2,500 calories a week- emoticon
3. Follow my workout plan for May- This includes 6 days a week of PT 24/7 with Billy Blanks and Mr.Shut Up & Train 21 day cardio challenge. emoticon

Free workouts and nutritional challenges sent to your e-mail every day emoticon
4. Be active!- Get out and enjoy this lovely Spring weather. Also trying Bikram yoga this month emoticon

Food Intake- trying to develop a healthier diet
1. Try to avoid process foods
2. Aim for 5 servings of fruits or veggies EVERY day
3. Aim for at least 20 grams of fiber pr day

My April results
Lost 1 inch from waist and both arms emoticon
Lost 1/2 inch from hips and thighs emoticon
The scale was all over but I did hit a new low of 173.8. I plan to weigh in weekly but my goal is just to stay within my range 172-177 emoticon

    emoticon on hitting your goal! We've been through pretty much a similar journey so it is soooo encouraging to know you made it to goal. I will continue to follow you because I need all the inspiration, motivation, and information I can get! The "M" word is scary for me and one I have not yet mastered. Your outlook and attitude sounds like you are headed in the right direction. Best wishes! Keep Sparking!

    PS check out the maintenance team here at Spark. Great support!
