During the first half of this year I've had a few posts about my weight loss. While it's been quite some time*** since I've been overweight, I've really been working hard to get to a good healthy weight. Over the past few months I've finally been able to do that. I've been using Libra to track my weight somewhat consistently for well over a year now.
Right now I'm teaching five cycling classes per week (unless I pick up a shift). Until July, I only drank water before/during class. Now during my back-to-back Cycle/Core class on Tuesday and again on my 60 minute cycle class on Saturday I've been adding a scoop and a half of Accelerade in my water bottle; this adds 180 calories.
The basic idea is to slow my weight loss. Slow is the key because there's only one more week of summer classes. Then I've got 2.5 weeks off of teaching, still plan on working out though. In the fall I'm only teaching three cycle and one core class; down from my current 5/1. So that is going to require a little food adjustment as well.
For me weight loss has been "simple" eat less/exercise more. but maintaining a healthy weight/lifestyle while balancing the demands of life is really a challenge!
+++That blip in May was post-cruise. Man! I thought I was doing so well with eating. I guess appetizer/entree/dessert at every dinner really did me in! At least I didn't totally "vacate" and made it to the ship's gym twice that week!
