I actually woke up before the alarm this morning so I have some extra time. :) Could it be that I started my new meal plan FINALLY two days ago and I am getting back to reaping the benefits of eating HEALTHY??? Yes. I was delayed by the flu followed by a nasty cold. Two weeks of being ill...pretty much unheard of for me but I am a teacher, so it comes with the territory.
My weight was down to 145 after being sick. Two days of eating very clean and I am at 142.8 this morning. What can I say? This stuff works. It is a pretty tight meal plan and I will follow it until March 27th. Then I will change it up. I am actually eating under 900 calories with a goal of fat and weight loss. Still seeing what I can do for that Biggest Loser competition at work.
Ultimate goal is to drop 10 pounds and lower my body fat to right around 20% and maintain this up until I compete again. Maintenance is the tricky part for me but I am learning!! I really struggle to stay on task without a goal and the sense of urgency that brings with it. And my goals need to be tangible. Looking good for summer vacation doesn't work for me. It has to be competitive in some way, shape, and form.
Next week I start training with a Niki! Very excited about this because I have never really worked consistently with a trainer one on one and I think it will drive me to get back to hitting it hard in the gym too. Of course I have Mike always by my side but his business is taking off like mad (WOO-HOO!!) and I trust Niki from working with her for the competition. I think this will be a GREAT move for me. Of course I will still be working out on my own the rest of the week. Only training six times a month. :)
