Last night, as I mentioned, Sarah and I went to the “How to lose 20lb in 12 weeks” talk at Refine Fitness hosted by Mike Bates. That’s us:
We had to laugh when he said, “If you’re just trying to fit into a bikini then this might not be the plan for you. We’re talking about long term goals.” I’m going to say that I don’t fall into this category because I hope that this birthday is the 1st of many that I wear a bikini!
One key thing that I learned was that doing any more than 15 repetition of weight during a set targets muscular endurance rather than strength. Since strength is my goal I’m going to keep focusing on heavier weights with no more than 12 sets.
The talk was really informative and I think I’ll sign up for a few others that apply to my lifestyle change.
On to today:
I think I’ll add “Stop Stress Eating” to my list of things to do. It’s only day two and I already had a bit of a binge breakdown! After a long, shitty-for-no-specific-reason day I went for dinner at my dad and nonna’s house.
Stress + Pantry full of chocolate = Bad2
I’m not going to beat myself up over my binge though otherwise I’ll lose track of my goal. I know stress is why I raided the chocolate cupboard. I just need an action plan to stop it from happening again. … hmmm… action plan….
Anyone have any ideas for an action plan? Because I haven’t got a clue. I could use some help on this one.
