I have been gone from here for sooooo long! I feel totally lost. I'm overwhelmed and really don't know where or how to begin. I've been spending all my computer time on facebook and although it can be a great social avenue, it is not helping me be productive in other areas of my life. I really don't want to feel and look the way I do anymore. I always have so much going on in my life and I'm trying to do so many projects at one time. I start things, get interrupted and never really get much accomplished! It is so frustrating!!! arrrrrgggh!
I am trying to do a grocery list and really don't want to buy things, I'm not going to use. I want to plan meals and base my shopping on that plan. I don't want to use the food that SP have suggested for menus, and I get my income on a monthly basis, so I really have my work cut out for me. When I was able to lose some weight in the past, I did the following:
Tried to drink at least 4 16 oz. containers of water a day.
Plan all my meals
Measure all my food
Write in a log everything I eat including grams/calories
Keep total amount consumed within calorie, protein, carbs and fat within range
Exercise ~ Walk at least 30 minutes at least 5 days a week
*I always had a problem with the exercising part and I really need to stregnth train and build muscle.
Well there it is! I know what I have to do. Now I just have to keep coming here as much as possible and try. In some small way, I have to try and get started! So please feel free to give me a firm kick in the butt!
