Summer plan ~

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

As part of the BTS we need to write out our summer plan for fitness & nutrition. So here’s my plan …
Sciatic has been flaring up, my #1 goal is to not allow it to become debilitating

2. RUN - USAF ½ Marathon training
Would really love to run a 1:59 or less ½ in the fall

3. Core exercises -
I’ve got a weak core which is causing a lot of my sciatic issues.
* I will do my PT exercises at least 3xs a week - shooting for more, but trying to set a realistic/attainable goal
* Daily 30 sec+ plank & side planks - I can squeeze in 2 -3 mins of planks every day - no one is that busy

3. Lose Weight
My nutrition plan is: Keep to 1400 calories or less daily - eat the majority of those 1400 calories with whole/real foods, but I’m not gonna be hard core over the summer with this. I am gonna focus on the calorie count and do my best no matter what life throws at me. I have the power to chose whatever foods I want as long as its 1400 calories or less. I’ve got the power. Hopefully, I will make good choices more often than not.

4. Treat myself with kindness, forgiveness and mercy
I am my own worst enemy. I give myself some royal beatings. Ultimately, this only makes things worst. I will focus this summer on being my best cheerleader, my best friend, my best encourager.

I started the 100 Days of Weightloss book yesterday. The number one thing is to stick with the book and whichever program I choose for 100 days (even if it takes me more than 100 days).
I plan on taking the 15 - 20 mins each day to read the chapter & do the daily To Do List every day for the next 98 days. I think I will learn so much about how my emotions play into my overeating and what healthy steps to take in order to live without overeating to compensate for my feelings.

I’m not going to overextend myself with goals & aspirations that I won’t be able to meet. I want to live FREE this summer. I am focusing on just a few simple areas and giving them my all. Once I’ve got those areas under control I can add other goals.

    Under 2:00!!!! That would be so awesome.

    You've got a little structure for your summer but not so much that you can't be FREE. Doesn't that sound wonderful - a FREE summer.
    Have fun! emoticon
