Specific: My goal is to maintain my weight in the range of 111-115. My MD’s goal weight for me is 115-120. It’s a bit early to get to that weight for me!
Measurable: I will track my Nutrition/Water intake & Exercise/Fitness on the Spark website.
Attainable: I will accomplish my Nutrition Goal by continuing to eat Vegan with the McDougall Program as much as possible. (There will be certain days I eat chicken or fish.)
I will accomplish my Fitness goal by participating in the challenge activities, working out with my trainer, watching Fitness Blender, Team Body Project, Spotebi, and YouTube videos.
Relevant: By maintaining my weight I will be healthier and have less joint and lower back pain.
