Looking back to move forward
Sunday, September 01, 2013
I have been thinking back to when I was successful in my weight loss. I've been looking at my old rotation. I'm not quite as fit as I was, but I am close. I am able to do my old Cathe workouts pretty well. I can even do tuck
jumps, jump ups, and ricochet hops (google for a video example.) in spite of the extra weight. I'm always impressed with myself when I do that.
My heart is doing well. I am building some muscle
in the leg to accommodate the activity. I am visibly leaner
around the hip area.
I have really enjoyed my coconut milk. It is instrumental to keeping my thyroid humming along. It keeps my body temperature and metabolism right where it should be.
I have even started adding a bit of yoga.
I have worked out a diet plan:
1300 cal/day 5 days/week
Zag days 1-2 days/week
Home cooked 5 out of 7 days/week.
drink per day.
South Beach style eats
Here is my tentative rotation. My goal is to burn 500 cal per workout. I know I'm always working on it, but its just a general idea:
Monday: Cathe Low Impact
Step (pick one, anyone.)
Tuesday: Cathe MMA
workout, drills only;
Wednesday: Cathe Low Impact
Step; PM: Easy Yoga
Friday: Cathe Impact Step
Saturday: Cathe Circuit
or Jillian Micheals Ckt; PM: Lunar
Yoga (25 min.)
I used to do run/walks 3x/week but with the smoke and the job being so hard on my feet, I prefer step because the step is actually kind of cushy on my feet. It has some give to it compared to concrete or asphalt.
