The Plan

Thursday, January 31, 2013

After my last blog post, I took everyone’s advice. I talked to my parents first when we were all calm this morning. Last night, I made a plan for myself that I thought I should be following, based on all of the research I have done on how to properly lose weight. It definitely includes more meals to speed up my metabolism! This is what it looks like:

1 glass of milk OR 1 protein shake if I worked out the night before
4 blanched almonds
*I can’t eat in the morning because I will get an upset stomach if I do.

Snacks (before lunch):
Green smoothie (blended up spinach, carrots, cucumbers, and tomatoes with water)
And if I’m extra hungry, 1 cup of Special K Original cereal

Lunch (at school):
Apples OR Special K Original cereal
And if I feel like mixing things up, just something healthy

Lunch (when I get home):
1 glass of milk
Salad OR cereal OR soup

Whatever my family is having
*It’s hard for me to plan out my dinner, because that is our family time, so whether we go out or eat in, we all eat pretty much the same thing. Though, most of the time, we eat in, and it’s always healthy!

I also plan to exercise everyday! At least run 1 mile each day. On top of that, I plan to exercise for at least 2 hours three times in a week!

I’m being really serious this time around. All my Kodak moments are coming up this year before June – Sweet 16, prom, graduation – so I have to lose my excess weight by then. For one thing, I joined SparkPeople, this AMAZING support system. I even downloaded an app on my iPhone that records my calories and exercise, so I can log my foods as soon as soon as I eat them if I don’t have a laptop nearby. In addition, I can compare two foods, so it deters me from eating any unhealthy foods. I was also thinking back to why my past attempts at dieting always failed, and I realized it was because I would forget my motivation (not lose it). I would start out strong, and then just go downhill from there. To make sure this doesn’t become a problem this time around, I made a HUGE poster representing my motivation and hung it up in my room, and wrote a few quotes in each of my notebooks so I have a constant reminder. Hopefully, this time around, it works! Thank you for all your support!

    Great plan and so glad you spoke to your family and it worked out. Have you talked to your doctor about what they consider your ideal weight for your height and bone structure, that is the only thing that worries me now. Maybe you just need a little toning. You look great in your profile pic to me. You are a very beutiful lady.
