Can't go at it alone or without a plan,

i'm putting my feelers out for an accountability buddy in order to help me stay focused and motivated, but i feel like i need to get my head straight on what it will take for me to lose the weight in 6 months.

weight loss is a game of numbers, of being prepared, of sticking to your word without constantly "thinking about it".

a) numbers game= choose the right amount of food and the right amount of exercise to do in order to get the 1.5lbs it will take to safely reach your goals

food=1400lbs/day spaced out well: 6:30 am tea & honey, 9:30 egg white wrap, 11:30 turkey wrap, 2:30 yogurt & apple, 5:30 Lara bar & apple, 8:30 turkey wrap & apple

exercise= 5 days of burning 500 calories-HIT THE GYM EVERY DAY AFTER WORK (except fridays and sundays)
500 calories=60 mins of spin, 22 mins of 5.5 min mile, 45 mins of elliptical, 60 mins ST w/ 20 mins stationary bike OR just buy yourself a body bug that will track calories lost. In addition, I have just bought a heart rate monitor device that can help me figure out exactly how many calories I burn during a workout so no more guessing. In addition, this heart rate monitor can help me get back into good cardio shape!

Preparation: no matter what, I must take the time in the morning to make my meals and prep my food for the day.

Alcohol: I can drink, but I should limit my drinking to 2 drinks on friday nights and 2 drinks on saturday nights in order to not screw up my weight loss efforts.

No more thinking-JUST DOING- I can no longer think about the choices I have made, I must rather stick to my decisions.

TV & FOOD: no more sitting in front of the TV and eating, rather-knit or do something with your hands in front of the TV.
