5 Pounds Gone Forever!
Tuesday, February 09, 2010
Well I have been following the program for 1 ful week today! This is very different than my previous attempts at weight loss. I actually feel as if I can do this!
By far the nutritional tracker has been the most valuable tool for me. I didn't realize just how much I was eating before. Also I am so much more aware of what I am putting into my mouth.
Here are a few things I have committed to doing to lose.
1. ALWAYS stay within my calorie range. I try and stay right in the middle, but allow myself to hit the high end once a week. This allows for a special treat if I want one. I simply adjust my meals for the day if I am going high.
2. I have committed to AT LEAST 20 minutes of cardio a day. I have not even started strength training yet, that will come. For now I am focusing on getting my heart rate up for at least 20 minutes a day, but find that I am motivated to go on to 30-40. By commiting to 20 I am not setting myself up for failure.
3. Eating High Fiber-In my nutritional tracker I entered fiber as a goal I feel MUCH more satisfied eating a higher fiber diet. If I cant get there through food, I add Benefiber supplements to my day to hit my goal.
My jeans are already looser! Amazing. My 12's are not snug anymore.
Well these are the 3 mini goals for me, for now.
This week I am going to put together my collage.
More big snow coming. I am planning on heading out in the snow to snow shoe.
Putting up pics weekly as I progress.
Have a great week everyone!
