And…. We’re…. OFF!
And we’re OFF! Okay, not really like a race this time. This time it’s about easing back into this and having the scale come down with that same steady ease. I think this will be good physically and mentally.
So the plan is simple.
First off, the sporadic meals have come to a halt. I’m also back to logging my food but not tracking macros, although my food choices will be clean healthy choices. My loosely targeted calorie range is 1600-1700 – no perfection with this.
These last 2 days of logging with this calorie range have me feeling like I was under eating at the beginning of this week. Once or twice a week I plan on having dinner with my family, friends, or hell… by myself. You know, like a normal person? (BTW – my husband always says it’s the normal ones that you need to watch out for. HA HA!)
I’m also easing into the cardio at 20 min about 3 x a week moderate intensity.
My strength training is going to be based on how I feel. As we speak, I don’t feel like going too heavy. Over a month off can really send me into shock if I jump back into it – again easing my way back into the game. I’m mostly doing light weight and sets around 3 with a total of 4 or so exercises. This is so light weight for what I’m used to. I’ll see how I feel as I progress.
It feels so good to be active again. I’m sure the clean food is having its impact on my feeling better as well.
Tuesday 10/12/10 – 167 lbs!
Friday 10/15/10 – 164.6 lbs (official weigh in)
First goal is to ease back into the 150’s.
