For the Record (August)

Exercise Program:
2-4 days a week of Insanity DVDs
2-3 days a week of strength training at the gym
1-2 days of rest a week

Thoughts: I do enjoy this set up and the workouts.  I have 4 appointments with a trainer scheduled for August, so that will make up a lot of my strength training on the schedule.

Diet:
Meal 1: Chobani
Meal 2: Oatmeal Smoothie or Egg Bake
Meal 3: Big salad – meat, spring mix, cheese, cranberries, light dressing
Meal 4: MaxPro shake + 5 triscuits
Meal 5: Same as Meal 3 or meat, rice, veggies (cooked)
Meal 6: MaxPro smoothie (with fruit, ice, almond milk, sometimes a bit of cocoa powder or PB2)

Thoughts:  I struggle with eating all this food some days.  Now that I have the smoothies it’s easier to get down for sure.  The breakfast is the constant struggle – but I’ll get there.  One day.  For now I do the best I can to stick with my macros.

Progress:
So far for 2012 I’m down 30 lbs and about 1.5 clothing sizes.  Definitely more progress on top than on the bottom but progress is progress and I am happy for that.  No matter how it comes off the point is that it is coming off and I am working towards my goal.  I started at size 26 pants and now I can get into some 22s.

August Goals:
1. Lose 8 lbs (always…this is the goal every month to weigh in on Monday with a 2 lb loss)
2. Eat clean on travel/vacation (DE, FL, MN – the only day quasi off is fair day because it’s once a year and I really want a cheese curd or two!)
3. Start walking/riding in the evenings (after work, before it gets dark at least a mile or two walk or a 20ish min ride…this is less about calorie burn and more about not sitting all night)
4. Lose a clothing size (let’s get into those 20s shall we!)
