Hey friends! Just thought I'd write a quick blog to let you know how I'm doing (and to hold myself accountable too.)
The personal training is going great! It's nice to have someone checking up on me DAILY! I love that! I started counting calories last week but skipped the weekend. I didn't go crazy overboard though so that's good! I'm proud to say I am right back on track as of yesterday and counting again! I've been staying in my range for calories. Per SP I should be around 1600's to 1900's to lose a pound a week. I'm not sure how accurate that is because I believe it takes my exercise into consideration and to be honest that has NOT been great. I worked out yesterday for the first time in a long time. I need to work on that.
I titled this blog "balance" because I feel I need more of it. lol It's like I always have to think about dieting and exercising and yet lots of times I don't feel I have the energy to do all the planning that it takes to get to where I want to be. However I need to plan or else I'll go off plan. I'd like to know what you all do to maintain balance? With teenage boys, a hubby, a dog, bills to pay, house to clean, doctor appointments, stores to shop at, food to cook, how and where does everyone find the time to workout, plan meals? I feel like it consumes my mind so much and I can't wait until it's a lifestyle and not a focal point of my life. I'm just ready to lose the weight and get on with it! lol Does anyone else feel this way! Sorry for blabbing...just wanted to get it off my chest and get some thoughts on planning and maintaining balance!
I'll keep ya posted on my progress:) Last week I lost 1.6lbs with no exercise and just counting calories. That made me pay more attention to what I ate and made me more aware of the calories I usually eat. I ate a lot less junk food last week let me tell ya! If anyone is thinking of counting calories but hates it (like I did)...let me tell you, it's actually not that bad...especially if you don't eat a ton of random things and takes bites of 10 different things throughout the day! You'll think twice because you won't want to log them! lol :)
Have a good rest of the week everyone!
