Iím almost all the way back up to my starting weight when I first started trying to lose weight. Ugh. Time to stop being a lazy pig and get back into making myself HEALTHY.
I backed off trying so hard to lose weight when I found myself crouched over a toilet at the gym with my fingers in my mouth, trying to make myself throw up the burger and fries Iíd just eaten. Yeah. So not good. Problem is, I went COMPLETELY THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION and stopped exercising completely and have eaten complete CRAP for the past several months.
Is anyone surprised that I feel like garbage every day? Iím not. After all, you are what you eat.
So TODAY, I am getting back on track.
Starting weight: 220
Goal: 180 (for now Ė once I hit 180 Iíll reassess)
This is going to have to be slow, HEALTHY going, as Iím also trying to get pregnant.
For starters, Iím going to aim for 1300-1500 calories a day. Did some research that says when pregnant and trying to lose weight, I should eat about 1800 calories a day. I can do that, and will switch to that once there is a bun in the olí oven.
Also to start: 30 minutes of exercise a day, every day. Thatís a two mile walk. Thatís NOTHINí, and if I have time to watch a whole season of Vampire Diaries in a week, or to read two books a day, then I most certainly have time to walk two miles or do a dance-aerobics video.
1300-1500 calories a day
30 minutes of exercise daily
NO MORE SODA
Eat 5-7 servings of fruits/veg daily
Meatless before dinnertime (otherwise I just get burgers and fries from the caf)
