Maintain Weight While Traveling
All of those wonderful meals and ever forgiving scrubs…my favorite jeans have shrunk? When did they become so tight? Perhaps those ultra comfy sweats have prevented the ultimate in realization… my pants didn’t shrink…my butt grew! Time has come for some drastic physical changes. And as we all know…beauty starts from the inside.
So, we have set a goal of keeping our calories around 400 per meal in order to lose those extra pounds we have accumulated. After all, weight loss occurs through healthy eating and exercise. For the sake of success, we will leave out the dirty word…diet. I prefer the terminology of lifestyle changes.
Since the weather outside continues to grow colder each day, we have joined a local gym to enhance this process. We enjoy running outdoors immensely, however the extreme twenty degree temperatures and seventy mile per hour wind will detour that desire quickly!
We have also started by cleaning up our food choices by cutting out an over-consumption of high fat meats. Our protein choices have included fish and skinless chicken breast. At one time we were strict vegetarians. We have become just like an ex smoker who decides to smoke that one cig at a party because they happen to be a tad bit… lit. Our carnivore ways have surmounted to out of control.
A few other goals we have set for ourselves include:
- Drinking lots of water
- Adding a multivitamin
- Working out at least three days a week doing cardio
- Lift weights on the opposite days
- Pick one day of the week to enjoy a new dining experience
