29 days to go…..Will I make it?

I have 29 days left in this year.  I have 24 lbs to lose. I am leaving for the holidays on Dec. 18th. WOW!

Looking forward the only way to succeed is to have a strict plan, and be rigorous.  It can be done, and I can do it.

My plan, is to stay at 1800 calories per day. 6 meals. 35% protein, 35% carbohydrates and 30% fat.  AND WORK MY ASS OFF IN THE GYM!!!!!

Lucky for me Craig is going to help me with that.  Today I thought I was going to pass out.  This was, seriously, the hardest workout we’ve had in awhile.  I had a couple of personal bests during it though.  First, I was able to run for 30 seconds at 6.0 mph/ 15 incline.  That is a lot for me. I did it for 3 full sets too!

Second, I was able to do keg sit ups and press, alternated with dumbbell fly’s and presses.  For those of you who have not been following me, I have had an injury to my left pectoral muscle, and have been compensating with my shoulder, and lat. So to be able to do three super sets of these exercises is a great accomplishment for me.

I finished with the training, and then walked for 30 minutes on 15 incline.  I burned another 430 calories.  followed by 10 minutes of stretching.  I feel great, and am looking forward to yoga tonight.  As I have mentioned in the past, yoga is great for burning calories, muscle recovery, and injury prevention.  I personally love it!

For those of you who are reading the blog and are also on Facebook, I have created a fan page.  Please become a fan.  Craig is on there, putting in workouts, and giving advice, putting in videos, and pictures. I know you’ll like it!

So, how many of you are planning for success in 2010?  What will your New Years Resolution be?  how will you achieve your goals this year?
