performance: losing 4.0 lb a week
So, I am 24... turning 25 this year (2015... I will be a quarter of a century old). I have major physical limitations due to bad knees, a bad shoulder, arthritis, carpel tunnel syndrome, and hyper-mobility (some of my joints bend backwards if I am not careful).
HOWEVER, my goal for 2015 is to overcome those issues. I have already started, and have seen marked improvement. It is essential that I take care of my body as I am a classical violinist, so my posture, my shoulders, my neck, and my hands especially need to be taken care of. I need arm muscle to hold my arms up and keep proper form for hours at a time. In addition to these requirements, I also would like to shed about 10 pounds (I was aiming for 135 end weight, but I actually rather like my shape if it were more toned so I have revised this number to 145). I am slowly getting into yoga as a close friend of mine is training to be an instructor. I am going to get my diving certification this year with her as well. I want to carefully and thoughtfully overcome my physical "limits" and rebuild my body.
That is my goal for this year. And as usual... I do not believe in fad diets, I don't think you can buy health. I have never set foot in a gym (next week will be my first time accompanying a friend to a yoga class of hers just for fun), I don't do crazy diets or meal plans. I eat healthy and monitor sodium, healthy vs bad fat, carbs, calories, and sugar. It isn't a diet but rather a way of life.
