Its that same time of the week again. I am happy to report that this week I lost weight! Yay! Especially after last week’s gain I’m really happy that this week worked out. The difference between this week and last week is –2.4 lbs so we are moving in the right direction. Whoop whoop!
EXERCISE: I am still sticking to my workout of cardio 3-4x a week. I managed to get to the gym 4x this week. Added bonus 45 full minutes of treadmill work on Sunday. And lifted 3 days this week and fit in one solid day of stretching for 30 minutes.
DIET: My food has been under my established calorie goal via myfitnesspal. However, this week I think I’ve decided to make my goals a little less aggressive and up my calories. The app gives you the option to select your goal which I had at -2lbs a week which gave me about 1200cals/week with my sedentary lifestyle. That being said I think I’m altering it to 1.5lbs/week which gives me around 1400cals/week. Not only is this probably a more sustainable diet but it supports my health goals. It will better support my goal of maintaining/increasing muscle mass, but I feel it will also help transition into weight maintenance easier. Since maintenance is something I’ve struggled with in the past, I’d like to give myself the best advantage now.
