My hope is to reach my fitness goals by March even though my wedding date isn’t until May 2013. My wedding dress is very form fitting and when I go for my first alterations appointment , I don’t want my body composition to still be fluctuating when this process starts.






    Quick recap on my diet and physical activity. I pretty much went through a 14 month stint were my physical activity was non-existent which is horrible considering that I use to workout 5-6 ways a week. Since the beginning of July, I’ve started the Insanity Workout Series, which I love even though the first week almost killed me.  Also, my Fi and I go on hike every Sunday morning which are typically between 4-6 miles long and range between 800ft to 1500ft of elevation gain. I will start weight/strength training again in August. I strongly recommend incorporating weight training into your workouts. It is a great facilitator when it comes to weight loss and toning up and will have a far more sustaining impact on your metabolism than cardio alone.


    So I don’t really do diets, but I do believe in eating clean and having 5-6 meals a day and try to be conscience of portion sizes.  I just got back on track with this and I consume 1800 to 2200 calories/day. I have no intention of lowering my calorie intake. I’m ramping up my workouts and need the energy. I am slowly increasing my protein intake to +/- 125 grams/day to accommodate my upcoming weight training and I’m trying to increase my water intake. I only drink alcohol on weekends usually in the form of a vodka press, no beer, wine, or super sweet drinks.


    I’m off to a great start, and it sounds like many of you are too. I’m excited to see our progress over the next few months. Good luck and keep up the hard work!

    Sounds like you have a really good start.. I wish I could hike that distance. INSANITY is definitely no joke and not for the faint. It's very challenging but it's also a lot of strength training in the intervals, which I love. I'm glad you joined and welcome! Good luck on your journey..
