Hereís an update for any Wendalyn fans in da house!
Another year has come and gone & this chicklet has over 8 years maintenance experience that I can ADD to my resume!
My first 2 years of maintenance sucked @ss, as I struggled with binge eating. I veered off to chocolateville and sweetsville time and time again. Once I stopped being so fricken strict with my eating habits & incorporated an 80/20 lifestyle, itís been smooth sailing and my binges have ceased.
Wendalyn for the win? HmmmÖ. unsure if binges will be problematic again or not, so I wonít get overly confident claiming that one. However, as the years tick on, I like to THINK my abs are keeping that sucker (binge ba$tard) smothered deep inside my core!!! For the past 6 years, IíVE had the upper hand!
Over the years Iíve learned to adapt to multiple athletic injuries & hammer out new and different routines. Where thereís a will, thereís a way. Weightlifting & strength training continue to keep me physically fit and strong. I still refuse to get hung up with a number on a F-ing scale, I prefer to use my jeans-o-meter and the mirror. It's pretty cool seeing the body I designed myself!
I stepped on the scale today to put that data here, 144 with ďcode redĒ (shark week) in progress. The number means JACK SCHMIDT to me! I'm healthy, happy and comfy in my skin.
For those that have inquired what I eat during maintenance, hereís yesterdays eats.
2 egg omelet with chicken, onions, mini peppers, mushrooms, topped with a mini wholly guacamole spicy, small bowl of fresh pineapple
Toasted sandwich- 2 pieces wholewheat toast with peanut butter, with flax and a sliced banana
1/2 a big bar of lindt dark chili chocolate
Chicken & shrimp shish-kabobs with onions, mushrooms, tri colored mini peppers, marinated in a low sodium teriyaki sauce. 2 kabobs + sweet potato with peanut butter
My reunion is this summer, THIRTY FRICKEN YEARS, crazy how time flies. I often hear, I look exactly the same since high school (minus the big 80ís hair). lol Iím definitely more @sskicker-esque at 48 vs the athletic jock ďme" from high school. I was voted "most athletic" back in the day as superlative. I guess some things never change. Iím still playing competitive volleyball a few nights a week which is a fun fitness outlet.
The reunion should be a great wknd to reminisce with many classmates I havenít seen in years. I recently bought this lil number for the occasion. http://www.irockbags.com/womens-clot...-bandage-dress
The dress accentuates my guns & gams! Hubby will be the ONLY accessory that I will need reunion night. Itís 30 years of togetherness for us as well & weíre still smitten after all of these years!!!
80/20 + pumping iron + watering myself often, maintenance continues to happen for me. It suits my busy active lifestyle, so this is how I shall continue to roll.
Peace out my 3fc friends.
