following: thqueenbe's own diet
performance: gaining 0.1 lb a week
I'm 31, married, no kids, 1 dog, 2 cats, work alot - no different than many folks.
I have a desk job which has changed my body shape significantly (used to be in retail and then in the military). I'm 5'7" and the weight that looks best on my body is about 120-125. My goal is 120. I want back in all of my clothes...
I have a decent diet (pretty much no red meat, mostly good carbs, fruit for snacks (real, not canned); and try to keep my sweet tooth under control (that's the hardest part for me). Also I really only drink water or green tea.
I'm training for a 10k, so I'm running about 10 miles a week. Used to HATE running, but now that I'm past the stage of being 'unable' to run, I find it quite enjoyable and motivational. I also found the BEST workout EVER. Physique 57. It is so addictive, and very effective. I'd lost the inches where I needed it when doing this workout...but then I inexplicably stopped and got lazy again. I'm back at it now, started the middle of January again. I do yoga when I can (and love it!).
I have a small frame. Some people think I'm crazy for being concerned about my weight, but frankly, 131 just doesn't look (or feel) good on me at all.
If anyone else has similar circumstances, I'd love to learn together!
Happy to report I've been holding steady at 125 for quite some time now. I don't even have to track calories anymore. Woo hoo! Now that I got it figured out as to what it "looks" like on the plate and whatnot, I'm pretty much good to go.
I'm also happy to report that I'm thoroughly addicted to my workouts. Good addiction to have, I'd say. It's really changed my life; I feel better, happier, and I'm now even a fitness consultant - back to helping people get fit too. Best reward of all is helping friends (new and old) to get their fitness on track. Happy to help if anyone wants it here too, just PM me! :)
