So you may have noticed I have been struggling. Like REALLY STRUGGLING!I wondered what I did before that had me so successful. So I worked out some plan details this weekend and this is what I came up with.
I looked back when I first started at what I was eating. I noticed a few
One I had no idea what I was doing..lol. I under measured and under estimated
quite often but I STILL lost weight! Why? Well, I was eating about 3000
calories less than what I ate before I started on spark people.
It was all new then.
It is obviously harder now since a few hundred calories one
way or another REALLY matter now.
BUT I decided that starting today, I am going to set my weeks worth of meals
and stay around 1400 calories all week. I need a jump start. BAD. I am also inputing all my food in for the day, the night before. No question what I will be eating, no being unprepared, no WINGING it!
I need to place a limit on myself. Get off the high end of calories and quit
with the treats and snacking. Its ridiculous.
I'm also going to do a Kickboxing video twice a week in the mornings to help
keep me on track for the rest of the day.
And I will continue walking my dog with my husband most evenings...
My hormones were a lot less crazy then, too. What can I do about that? I'm not
sure. I thought I had a solution but its not working anymore. I'm going to make
an appointment with my OBGYN. It is time. I need help.
I just know that the direction I'm going in is NOT where I want to go. I'm
unhappy, unmotivated, sweaty, lazy and in pain. I worked too hard to get where I was to keep climbing back into that hole.
So before you all cheer for me and think "Jan's back!", let me ask you....PLEASE
hold me accountable! I need some checking in and some ass kicking and if I am
radio silent, it is usually not a good thing. I need you guys...help me get back
on track! I need someone to check on me, check my food tracker, check my
exercise, check to see that I am doing what I need to do. Yes, for a small
amount of time, until I am stable again, I need babysitting!. Maybe I will even
have a little surprise for the TEAM JAN CREW....
(by the way, I wrote this on sunday. Today, I did my kickboxing video, ate my planned breakfast and am feeling quite good today. Amazing what a plan and an attitude adjustment can do!)
