Hi to all my enthusiastic clients!
How are the Fitness Challenge Charts filling out?
How many Pikes? How many minutes of Planks?
How many minutes of Cardiovascular Fitness are you completing daily?
I am hoping for steady improvements from last week!
Hang in there team.
One of my clients lost 60 pounds in 2011. She meets with me one time a month now, and here are her goals.Personal – Physical Goal
WHAT - I will maintain the 60-pound weight loss achieved in 2010 and continue a healthy life eating and exercising life style.
WHY – By maintaining a healthy life style I can remain on the lowest amount of arthritis medication. In addition, by sustaining my current weight it allows me to feel younger and healthier than I have felt in years, the arthritis remains in remission, my joints are not painful, and I have more energy.
HOW – I plan to maintain the weight loss by choosing to be healthy on a daily basis, exercising 5 days a week, and keeping a food and exercise journal. The exercise must consist of 45 minutes of cardio, 10 minutes of weight training and resistance training, and 5 minutes of abs training. Additionally, for accountability, I will work out with a trainer once a month, and if I exceed 5 pounds of weight gain I will resume the weight loss program until the weight is off.
September is a great time to rethink your health goals, both long term and short term. Where do you want to be next Sept.? Are you happy with your current fitness level? Or would you like to get stronger? Leaner? Less weight? Less stress? The kids are off to school and everyone has prepared for a new year. How about you? Write down your goals:Fitness, Weight managment, Nutrition, and stress. If you need help accomplishing your goals and do not know where to start, then hire someone to help you get started with realistic, measureable, and achievable goals. It is a time of new beginnings. Start moving everyday for 10-15 minutes if you have been sedentary. Have some fun! Good luck.
