Good morning Fit Fam,
It is a quiet Sunday morning at the Trihardmama house, 3 out of 5 of us are feeling under the weather. Beck has been sick all week long, while O and I are just getting started. I have been drinking Asian Flu fighter with lemon honey for the past two days hoping to nip it in the bud.
I wrote yesterday about racing weight.
I wanted to share my stats with you today and my goals.
These numbers (percentages) I calculated based on my age, height, current weight and activity level. I chose moderately active over very active, I am not sure whether that was accurate or not but I wanted to err on the side of caution.
I took my numbers and I used a formula in Racing Weight – by Matt Fitzgerald to find that my ideal racing weight which is 130 lbs. This weight is based on my desire to hit 18% body fat.
Now I just need to implement The 6 Step Program, follow his guidelines and STICK to the PLAN!!
STEP ONE is all about improving your DIET QUALITY. So far I am pretty much on track as I try to avoid nutrient sparse foods, however, I know my chocolate, cookie and nacho addiction will have to go 😦
