I have started a challenge group (for people with Fibromyalgia) on Facebook to help me get back into exercising...and I am using measurements to track my progress instead of weighing in. I must say, I like this approach MUCH better... In the last month, I have lost a inch off my thighs, arms, and waist. Great to see progress--even if it is small. I will measure again in a month. For now, I need to focus on doing what I can fitness wise and staying on my eating program.
The core of my eating program is having Muscle Milk Chocolate Protein shakes twice a day. I will just be eating dinner with some snacking going on. There are multiple reasons for avoiding *eating* and using protein shakes, but I think it will help me focus on making sure I am getting the protein my body needs. Normally, I never get the protein I should be consuming.
As far as exercising goes, I am hoping to do some workouts at night. That way, I have enough energy to get me through each day before I do my small workouts that completely exhaust me.
That is the plan. Simple, but doable plans. Workout when I can. Eat right when I can. Limit how much snacking I do, and the kind of snacks I choose.
