So here's my goal:
I want to lose about 10 lbs. BUT, I don't want to be "flabby-skinny." You know what I'm talking about. A person could lose 10 lbs by diet alone, but there is a good chance that person would still not look fit and healthy. Its one thing to lose weight, but its a whole different thing to lose weight, while firming up and building muscle. It takes much more effort, and since you're building muscle, you gain some muscle-weight in the process, so it takes more time as well. So basically, my goal is to lose about 10 lbs, but also firm up my muscles. I guess the second part is not very measureable. Oh well.
Here is the plan:
For cardio, I'm going to run at the gym 2 or 3 days a week, and then also do cardio dvds 2 or 3 days a week (alternate days). For toning exercises, I'm going to get back into my gym routine with free weights, machines, and medicine balls. Side Note: I just read an article about how running = abs like this. So yeah... I guess that's gonna be me. :)
As far as diet, I am going to try to eat no more than 1500 calories a day. Any less than that, and I will go crazy. Believe me, I've tried. Doesn't this look delish? Hmm...
I would take a "before" picture, but that would be humiliating. Well, maybe I will consider it.
A possible problem with this plan, is that I (or I should say "we") will begin trying to get pregnant again in about 2 months, maybe less. If I become pregnant (cross your fingers), then this blog will have to be put on hold. But I really want to lose this weight before I get pregnant so that I will have less to lose after my pregnancy. Makes sense, right?
