Well, I went to see a 'professional' today.
She seemed like a very nice lady.
We talked about circuit training...
We talked about nutrition and the need to 'get rid of fat'.
In my food and over my muscles.
She was a three time miss olympia.
I swear to God, all I could think of while talking to her was this:
Yes I have about 15 to 20 lbs to lose.
But no, I don't want to eat half cans of tuna and 'calorie poor' (her words not mine) leafy veggies for the rest of my life.
I don't mind doing it for a while....but yuck.
I am putting up my scale till November 1rst, When I will weigh in before God and everyone, weight to be posted here.
I am gonna keep my calories between 1400-1500.
implement some circuit training and interval training, step up my game exercise wise.
drop my sugar to 2 tablespoons a day and increase my salad intake.
But I don't want my whole life to revolve around an 'eating schedule'.
My 'eating schedule' will be with my family.
My exercise will be an hour to an hour and a half a day.
And after that I am not going to worry about it.
I am taking Allen's formula...(well, not allen's formula...but we will call it allen's formula because he talks about it all the time) and I will use that.
Thank you Allen.
So, my formula is 132 x 11=1452
That is what it would take to maintain my ultimate weight....add in exercise and there is my calorie level for the week or less if I so choose. I will be posting numbers on Sundays and what my deficit was.
My weigh in will be once a month till I get to goal.
I will have one 2500 calorie day a month like I did when I started, and two 1800 calorie days on Sundays...
Like allen and many others, I don't care who likes my plan. It's my plan.
When it comes down to it, this journey is our own.
It comes down to what we want our lives to represent.
What we want to focus on.
I don't want to focus on my body 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
I did that fat.
all the time, thinking of how ashamed I should be.
I won't do it now.
Thinking of how I should be only eating a can of tuna and some spinach.
That's not a life...not to me anyways.
Eating schedules...bizzare food combinations...
Lack of breasticles.
I'm a chick.
I realized today that irregardless of whether or not I ever lose a nother pound...I refuse to spend the rest of my life paranoid about fat, counting out almonds and whatever it is you have to do to look like that.
That IS NOT me.
I will settle for a healthy weight, some stretch marks and a full life.
Have a great night guys.
