I’m so excited about 2011 because I’m determined to make this the year I finally reach my dream weight and dream body. I’m 5’6” and currently weigh 137 pounds. By the end of this challenge, or at least before bikini season, I hope to weigh 125 pounds.
During weekdays, eat 1200 calories. On weekends, I have more flexibility, but absolutely everything I eat must be recorded on the Daily Plate. I also hope to cut down on my sodium intake. Despite the fact that I eat very little processed foods, never add salt, and typically cook for myself, I somehow always end up over the 2400 mg a day.
In terms of fitness, I want to do the treadmill/elliptical (depending on my mood) for 45 minutes three times a week. Pilates once a week (with a 20 minute treadmill/elliptical warm-up), and yoga twice a week — once on my own (also with a cardio warm-up), and once in a class.
I’ve been keeping up so far with these goals, and I’m looking forward to posting an awesome bikini photo by the end of this challenge!
