A goal weight would be around 144. I was stable there before. But if I work out and start building muscle or something that causes my weight to be higher than that and still achieve the overall look I want, that's perfectly fine with me.
What is your workout plan?
At this time, I work out three days per week minimum. My scheduled planned workout currently is Beachbody's Yoga Booty Ballet. I have the DVDs and I loosely follow the calendar that is included with the workouts.
I get a workout as a daycare provider. Carrying around infants all day to replace weights is great strength training. Taking extra time to 'squat' to pick them up or to clean up can be a great workout. I also enjoy walking/running with my husband.
What makes you feel good?
I love it when you feel your body changing and when you can feel your muscles tightening when you do normal daily activities.
When are you most comfortable?
When I feel good!
How will you create accountability for yourself and who will hold you accountable to your goals?
Well first of all, I have to thank Rhonda for allowing me to be accountable to her! (I told you she is so sweet!)
I have to have a big, consistently visual calendar to mark off when I actually work out. I realize that just saying I'll work out three days a week could change. For instance, Sunday could be the beginning of a week or the catch up day of another week.
How will you reward yourself for small achievements?
I really don't know. I think that I'll get more things that I feel I need in order to work out. For example, I don't have an MP3 player. So if I work out consistently for two months, then I'll get one because I know I'll use it. BUT, I'll have to have do a workout that will need music, so running here I come!
I'm also telling a few family and friends and they are going to be looking at me up and down. I really want to be a good role model though, and let them know that they can do it without drugs and starvation!
What is your first goal?
To work out three times a week for two months!
What is your nutrition plan?
I really believe that I can eat and still lose weight by eating completely organic and healthy. I'm trying to stay away from serious calorie counting, fat free foods and diet pills. I want my body to do the work. If I do the work, I'll appreciate it more.
I couldn't agree with you more Kristal!
