Goal Achieved! Now What?

20121003-080742.jpg

This morning I stepped on the scale and was overjoyed to see I had surpassed my goal with a weight of 159.0 as you can see. Wow.

This begs the question “Now what?” Well after hugging Zanna I answered this question by putting on my running shoes and banging out a hilly 4 mile run.

This is no time to rest on my laurels and break out the Ben & Jerry’s. Rather, my thoughts are to continue with my current diet & exercise plan until we take off for Florence on Sunday (yay!). At some point on our trip (did I mention we were getting married on the 12th?), I will shift into maintenance mode.

For me, maintenance mode means continuing to keep a food diary but with a higher daily calorie goal for maintaining weight rather than losing. Of course, this will likely be quite challenging since we will be traveling in Italy, celebrating our wedding, and eating every meal out.

I hoping, however, that I can continue to eat smart and exercise most days.

I’ll let you know how it goes…
