Back to Basics
I have spent a lot of time thinking this week about what I need to do next. I think I have finally come to a decision – get back to basics. I have to get back to how it all started – exercising a lot and counting calories. Make it about the simple math of calories in and calories out. Weightloss is not any more complicated than that.
I have contemplated doing another round of P90X or training for a faster 5K or something… something keeps stopping me from making that commitment. I think I do not want to be tied down to one program. All last summer I did P90X – day in and day out… Tony, Tony, Tony. Soon after that I started training for my first half marathon, then the marathons…. day in and day out – running, running, running…
What I want is variety. BUT, I need to ensure that I stick to it. The beauty of committing to P90X or a marathon training plan is that there is a PLAN. I am a firm believer of plans but they are a bit mind numbing towards the end. I am going to try something different.
For the next 90 days – burn 1000 calories 6 days a week. The calorie burn can come in any way, shape or form. Some days it might be one long workout, some days 3 shorter workouts… some running, P90X, Jillian, core work, yoga, spinning, weight training, etc. Whatever it takes to get the calorie burn.
Food will be a balanced diet of protein and complex carbs. I am going to start with 1800 calories a day.
One day a week I will have a rest day and a “high calorie” day. They may or may not be the same day – it doesn’t matter. The high calorie day really works for me – it is not a day to go hog-wild, but a day were I can have something that I have been craving or a meal that I do not have to count calories on.
I am looking forward to a little variety!
