January Update

Friday, January 18, 2013

I don't know why i'm having such a hard time doing what i know i need to do, doing what i've done to help me drop 55lbs, and what i PLAN out to do...i'm just failing at sticking with it.

So i need to reevaluate and figure out how to stay within my calorie range...
1) do NOT go to the cafe at work - AT ALL
2) fill my water bottle when the cafe is closed
3) batch cook
4) pack my meals
5) plan my meals
6) set up a sticker plan for meals
7) set up a sticker plan for fitness
8) tweak fitness journal

I logged in all of my meals, including what i'll eat for dinner and 1 snack (apple). I will be over by 225 calories. That is better then it has been most days. My plan, and the meals i had prepared were set to keep me on the low end of my calorie range...well that didn't work out. I went to the cafe and picked up pizza and will power!

I'm batch cooking tonight. I'll make enough broc/caul mix for my weekend meals. I'll make my chicken breast (I saute them in garlic, lime juice and i use italian seasonings), and i'll make brown rice. I will place an entire meal into my tupperware container so taht i just have to place it into the microwave to warm it up. This weekend i will stay within my calorie range!

Goals tonight:
Zumba abs
4 miles walking

    Love your plan. You can do this because you are not simply interested in losing some weight. You have a goal and I'm sure you are commited to it.

    wow, I like how you track crunches, walking, and biking miles for the month. That is a really good idea.

    Good job on your plan! Definitely need to work on a meal plan too. Weekends are hardest to stay in range.
