Thing one: I have 15 days until I leave for vacation. (Yay!)
Thing two: I have been going over my calories way too many days lately.
Therefore, I have 15 days to GET MY ACT TOGETHER. Honestly, I can do anything for 15 days.
Pre-Vacation Commitments - June 1-16:
a. Under 1500 calories.
b. 130+ grams of protein per day.
c. 5 classes per week.
d. 2 weeknight extras (strength/running/biking/step/
whatever) per week.
e. Long runs (4-6 miles) on weekends.
Vacation Commitments - June 16-25:
1. Under 1700 calories.
2. 100+ grams of protein per day.
3. Exercise every day.
4. GROUSE GRIND!
Post-Vacation Commitments - June 26-30
i. Under 1400 calories.
ii. 135+ grams of protein per day.
iii. Class every day.
iv. 2 weeknight extra workouts.
Of course the vacation is going to be the hardest part of this. There are so many temptations, so few routines, sometimes such limited options, etc. But we'll have a kitchen and I imagine at least most days we'll do breakfast at the house so I can do protein shakes and yogurt and so forth. I've ordered single-packs of protein powder so it's super portable and all I have to do is add it to a water bottle and shake. And I'll try really, really hard to influence lunch/dinner choices that can work with my plan. It won't be perfect. There will be splurges. But I will keep them in line.
Then, when I get back, BEAST MODE. Until I leave again the following week. Heh. It's going ot be a rough two months with all the travel I have planned.
