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 emoticon 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. emoticon My heart is doing well. I am building some muscle emoticon in the leg to accommodate the activity. I am visibly leaner emoticon 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.
1 coconut emoticon drink per day.
South Beach style eats emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

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:

Sunday: Rest
Monday: Cathe Low Impact emoticon Step (pick one, anyone.)
Tuesday: Cathe MMA emoticon workout, drills only;
Wednesday: Cathe Low Impact emoticon Step; PM: Easy Yoga emoticon 30-60 min.
Thursday: Rest
Friday: Cathe Impact Step emoticon
Saturday: Cathe Circuit emoticon or Jillian Micheals Ckt; PM: Lunar emoticon 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.

    Smoke?? Is where you live polluted with smoke? That could contribute towards some bad issues. But you seem to keep active which is very good.

    I am going to have to come up with my own plan soon too. Yours is very detailed and thorough. I hope you do well on it.
