How will you know if succeeded? When you see a picture of me ziplining across the rainforest in Maui. If not, well, I can't force my body to do more than I already ask of it. We will be cutting back on the high cal day twice a month to see if that does anything to help us along (I'm sure it will) but we're not cutting them out entirely, it's just not how we could live the rest of our lives and 170+ pounds off says it's not a bad strategy for us.
I have also decided to intersperse a bit of "top o' the hour" bursts of movement. At the top of the hour, I stand up and do 10 squats and 10 arm reaches to spike the heart rate a bit. I want to make this a habit and will eventually move to every half hour. If I start to forget, I will set the microwave timer so I have to get up to turn it off and reset it. I hope this little extra bit of movement helps things along too. Mind you, I'm not holding my breath but all I can do is do everything I've been doing because as you all know, I don't give excuses anymore where health is concerned. So if you want to send extra successful vibes out, that would help to make for an extra awesome anniversary trip!
