- Eat breakfast.
- Eat a calorie-aware, moderately low-fat diet that includes complex carbs.
- Get plenty of exercise at moderate intensity. Walk!
- Self-monitor through frequent weigh-ins and a food and exercise diary.
So how do I do in these areas?
Well I usually have a high-protein shake everyday for breakfast. Check. I think I eat pretty calorie-aware but I don't always eat complex carbs - I love pasta so much! I definitely get plenty of exercise but I don't walk I prefer to run or ride. I self-monitor by weighing myself a few times a week and making sure that I only vary by a few pounds at all times. I am also a bit OCD about my exercise "diary". Between my blog and the running app I have on my iPhone I know the miles I run and the workouts I do. I'm not great at tracking my food in a diary unless I'm trying to lose weight.
Do you do these things or have other great tips for maintaining your weight?
