Now that I have finished being in training for races for almost a year, I have started to concentrate a lot more on weight loss. I have a goal to be under 200 by the end of December. This is a completely reachable goal for me but does require some work.
Lately I have been getting up between 5am and 6am in the morning in order to get a decent morning workout in. I found that working out early in the morning tends to keep me on the straight and narrow with eating for the rest of the day. I have also started drinking a smoothie made up of 1 cup coconut milk, 1.5 cups of spinach, 1 cup of berries, and 1 banana. Putting most of my fruits and veggies into my body before I even hit the gym in the morning seems to be helping out a lot with healthy eating as well.
So there you have it..my next goal. I have been working on this weight loss goal for 2.5 years and I am just ready to get there already. I haven't been under 200 since 7th grade and I am excited to see that number. I'll keep you posted with the progress, but to me, hitting this goal is the only option.
