My current rules are:
1. Go to the gym 4 - 5 times a week.
2. Only buying a new garment when I have to rid of one because it doesn't fit anymore.
3. Only eating ice cream and fried foods once a week.
4. Drinking 2 glasses a milk a day.
I have excelled at all of them but the milk one. I generally had one, but I find it hard to drink two.
I haven't quite decided what new rules I am going to add. I was thinking about adding drinking the RDA of water. Other than that I'm not quite sure, but I am open to suggestions.
In other news, I have survived Xmas and all of the goodies associated with it. As I have mentioned, while maintaining I can go two pounds above 261 and two pounds below. In preparation for the holiday, I cheated and got to 257. I was a bit surprised since I was sick and didn't go to the gym for four days before December 23rd. I think my metabolism is running hot. It was nice to indulge and I was a bit afraid of getting on the scale this morning, but I didn't end up needing the 2 extra pounds. I would've stayed in "the zone" anyway.
Regardless, I plan on enjoying my remaining days of maintaining.
