Its been a long time coming. I am very pleased the family and I were able to work it into our schedule. Besides I desperatley needed something that was just for me to do outside of the house. Kinda sucks though, no one else seemed interested. Typical.
Wow I am hitting it hard for my fourth day! The elliptical is my best friend. I have plantar fasiciatis, or whatever, in both feet due to being obese and wearing the wrong shoes when waking. So no treadmills for me. Its probably a good thing because my chubby self wouldnt be able to burn the amount of calories or sustain for as long as I can on the elliptical. The past 3 days I have been able to burn off 300 calories each visit. But today I pushed myself to 400 in 45 minutes! Slow and steady wins the race forsure.
I am also concerned about my calorie differenial. I have had a steady streak of 700-1000 for 2 weeks now and have lost 5 pounds. But now I have to up the food intake due to the excersising each day. I have to admit after eating 1200 calories a day for so long, food in general seems disgusting. And I found myself having trouble reaching even the 1200 goal. But I am going to go up to 1400. Im going to burn 400 calories each day and eat 1400 calories each day so a differential of 1000. I am rly hoping to see a 1.5-2 pound weight loss every week. Hell, maybe even more, fingers crossed.
I have never taken my weight loss goals so seriously as I am now. I am quite proud of myself for taking the nessesary steps. Now to continue this routine and be paitent for results!
