It's not really a goal change. it's more like revitalizing old goals with some new ones.
Losing 38 pounds by August has always been the goal. I started in January and have since lost 14 pounds. Since then I have been stuck in a cycle of gaining 5 pounds back and then losing it again. I am on round 3 right now. So it's time for a better plan.
1. I am going to find and use an App/Website that I like to track my calories. I am convinced the perfect one does not exist so I have to find one I am willing to use. Loose It is my newest attempt. So far, so good. It is easy to understand and easy to use. I also get more calories based on daily physical activity. At a 500 calorie deficit right now! Woot!
2. Work out 5 days a week. 3 days of cycling and 2 days of Xtend Barre. Which I am hoping to review for you all next week. I am going to start my weeks on Monday for this and for #3.
3. Start training for a century. Using a training program I found on line, I am going to attempt to train for a 100 mile bike race. It is a 10 week program but my real goal is to be able to handle one by September. So if I am not stressed about the 10 week program,. You can see my training plan and progress here if you are interested.
4. The weight loss goal is more ambitious then I have attempted before. Taking into consideration all of the tracking and working out I am planning, I think it is doable. I want to loose 2 lbs a week hitting a total of 38 pounds lost by October 1, 2012.
I am planning A LOT of work but I am truly excited for it. I am looking forward to my new healthier future.
What are your goals?
