Big challenge this time. I signed up for my gyms fitness challenge. It cost $10, but I could win $500. I am not a gambler (with money) but I thought it would be a nice motivation to take me to the next level. They use an Inbody scale, which measures fat and lean muscle with out having to submerge yourself in water. I used the scale a year ago before either surgery when I was 20 pounds lighter, so even if it is not 100% accurate, I do think it will be a good judge of gaining muscle and losing fat. One woman and one man will win and it is based on the difference in lost fat and gained muscle (LBM). I also took advantage of the personal training sessions and bought eight 30 minute sessions that they had at a special price.
My my focus has always been to lose fat and gain muscle so my goals won't differ much. I do need to be more consistent posting results on my thread.
Goal 1. Nutrition. Paleo/Keto reset eating. Bread/pasta and sugar have been reduced to almost nothing with the last challenge. I have decided to steal from @deftona, and post a picture of my evening meals. I bought Mark's Keto reset diet so interested in trying that since I know my body is carb sensitive. Burning my fat for fuel is something that makes sense to me. I hate the first few days of under 25g of carbs so I may ease into it by still having some potatoes, squash and or a little rice. Using MFP consistently is another goal but I will settle to just track carb grams if need be. IF has worked for me in the past and also kept me on the straight and narrow at work from nibbling, so it is added into the mix too. The goals may change by week but I am starting here
Daily carbs under 25g. IF on 3 work days till 2pm when I get home. Post picture every night of my evening meal.
Goal 2 Exercise. I have been excellent at going to the gym. Yeah me! Now to take it to the next level. Water aerobics, Cardio ( usually ride bike or do rowing machine) and lift weights. With the personal training sessions I want to work on getting a better knowledge of the free weights and machines at my gym and also strengthening my core which for some reason I just can't motivate myself to do. Again I reserve the right to adjust
4 water aerobics classes, 3 cardio/strength workouts and one personal training session each week.
Goal 3. Be more active here. Post on my thread and visit at least 10 others each day. You may get some trivia here and there especially to keep the 70's and 80's alive since @Mr_Willes is doing a great daily music trivia game for all you youngsters on his thread. Anyone,who has never heard of the songs I post should head there and check his out!
