12 weeks of successes!
Eating... Breakfasts will be smoothies or similar substitute. High protein and big drink makes me feel full for the day.
Snacks will be mostly fruit/veges
Lunch will be whatever suits on the day and dinner will be mostly from a meal plan. Everything will be watched to make sure I'm eating to my "full" level not over, eating low enough calorie foods and will track it all in a book each day. I do not track calories as I get over it quickly and give up, but in saying that, I will check new things, be aware of the calories and my diet is aimed to be 1200-1300 approx. I will be allowed one treat of approx 100-120 cals in the evening. Once I start teaching practice, I will be bringing lunches with me every day and having a snack in the van on the way home to avoid munchies when I get home.
Fitness! :) I am going to... Do walks in new places, talk Mr 18 months for a walk when we are out and about doing errands, rather than doing it from home as I get bored. I'm going to dance at home during the day on wet days, and will work at getting a cable from my computer to TV to do exercise video's when it's wet in autumn. Teaching practice... I'll try to do 10 mins before I start work if I have the time (don't know my hours yet and have Mr in care). Otherwise, I'll do a minimum of 15 mins in the evening 3 work days a week and 5 mins strength (arm curls/squats/etc) and then do two longer stretches in the weekends (even if it's only 40ish mins if that's all I can manage with the work)... The work will be exercise anyway compared to my normal level so not too bothered there.
I will weigh in daily as I have more motivation doing it this way and keep a closer eye. I will track my exercise minutes at least every couple of days on SP. I will reward myself every 2 kg (4lb approx) (starting with 77.9kg or less (172lb)) til I get to 70kg then every kg after that.
