This blog is for stating the steps I will use to reach my goals to lose weight and be healthy during the 12 week challenge and hopefully will continue thereafter.
1. Good nutrition
A. Measure and weigh my food.
B. Track whatever crosses my lips into my journal and figure the calories to stay between 1200-1500 per day.
C. Plan menus ahead and purchase what will be needed for preparation.
D. Drink 6 glasses of water per day. (Doctor's orders.)
E. Do not eat ice cream or candy, my faves.
A. Program recommended by a medical specialist for exercise at a level he recommends.
B. After permission, go to gym to do as much of the routine prescribed by the physical therapist as agreed to by Dr.
I will continue going to their gym in the afternoons through the summer. That time has been set aside for 3 months and continues to be my best time. It works as I am not a morning person. Afternoons are best.
As far as rewards along the way are concerned I really don't need any material things. Books and plants give me pleasure, so I will use those for my rewards. I'm going to base those on any amount of weight lost or measurement reduced during each week. AT the end of 12 weeks, if I have dropped a dress size, I will get some new piece of clothing in the new size.
