Current Workout and Eating Plan...

Sunday, January 04, 2015

I have a huge collection of workout DVDs (I'm slightly addicted emoticon ) and love to make up new plans for myself... Currently I'm using Cathe Friederich's XTrain workouts, which is mainly strength training. I'm in the middle of week 3 (I've done the whole program once before). I am subbing out some of the cardio workouts for Insanity, T25, or Peak 10 cardio workouts. I'm also adding PiYo once or twice a week for some flexibility training. Loving the plan so far! After these 12 weeks I think that I will do a round of Peak 10 (which will probably be about 12 weeks since she is coming out with some new DVDs in a few weeks and I'll want to add them into the mix). Then I will probably do a round of Body Beast. I think the biggest thing that has helped me is to pre-plan everything in a planner/calendar (I buy one from the Dollar Tree every year to track my workouts). I write it out in pencil so that I can switch things if needed. It really helps me in the morning to already know which workout and I'm doing (and the length of it, so I'm not late to work!) I used to look through a bunch of different ones and try to decide which I wanted to do. At 5:00am, it's not always a good idea for me to see what I "feel" like doing, lol.

Food-wise, I'm back to tracking on Weight Watchers. I've switched to tracking in a paper journal, which helps me... I was using the WW app, but it seems to take forever to track each individual thing. Then I was using the Myfitnesspal app (which has an amazing database of TONS of food) but I really like counting points instead of calories... I go in for my monthly weigh in next Saturday (I'm "lifetime" so I usually just go once a month to weigh in). Tackling these 5 pounds that crept on from Christmas. Too much celebrating emoticon

    I'm usig My Fitness Pal and had never, ever counted calories. I'm on maintenance with my own (mostly) no flour, no sugar plan, but my husband is using MFP and it's really helped me. Good luck with going back to counting points. I know you'll be successful at it! Great hearing from you!
