Well, the numbers show that I'm on my way to meeting my goal by the end of the challenge. I started at 215 lbs, and I've lost 11 so far, with an end goal of losing 15 and being 200 lbs or less at the end of the challenge.
I can't really say that I've been following my plan as much as I'd like to though. I'm only running about 2 days a week, but I am filling in the other days with bike riding, walking, volleyball, and playing at the park with the kids. I've been counting calories in my head more than tracking on my Loseit app, and while that seems to work once in a while, using that method long-term is just asking for trouble.
So....here's my new plan:
No more grazing or picking for dinner.
More protein, less carbs. Picked up some cottage cheese and greek yogurt tonight, yum!
30 minutes of exercise a day - home, the Y, a walk on my lunch hour...lots of opportunities.
ONLY step on the scale on Wednesday! If I'm up a little on Friday, I get totally bummed :(
Watch the Tigers win the World Series :)
I'm ready to get back on track!
Good luck to everyone in the challenge - lets finish strong!!
