Fitness Minutes: 2,513

My Goals:
Major:



* Lose the weight I've gained due to college, medication, grieving, and life changes.



* Goal Weight: 108 lbs by New Year's Day, 2011!



* Get to an "athlete" level body fat percentage; 14-20%.



* Be able to hike better than ever. Able to conquer "Difficult" hikes in the Gorge!



Mini:



* 120 lbs by September 23rd (my birthday!). -- MET!

* 110 by Halloween!


My Program:
This is definitely working for me! I'm seeing amazing progress.



* Exercise at least 180 minutes a week.



Primarily I am exercising on the elliptical, though I find it boring, because my doctor has told me no walking, running or cycling. I am currently doing between 30-60 minutes 4-6 times a week, depending on migraines. I try to mix up the settings, and do both harder, shorter workouts, and longer, easier workouts.



* Work in strength training using my body as resistance.



I'm really not good at getting this in. I find strength workouts extremely boring.



Currently focusing on quad-strengthening as treatment for my patellofemoral syndrome. Leg lifts, hip abduction, squats. Three times a week.



* Watch my calorie intake; cut down on sugary drinks!



* Eat more raw and whole foods and fewer processed foods.
