Day 1

Monday, January 13, 2014

Today was my first day on my friends and family "Biggest Loser" challenge (January 12 to July 12) and it was fairly routine. I returned to my regular eating program, which consists of the new eating habits I acquired when I lost weight the first time around. The only thing I added was a 25 minute walk during lunch. It doesn't sound like much, but considering I've been relatively inactive for the last couple of months, it was a big step in the right direction.

I checked in with a couple of friends today and they have joined Weight Watchers, joined an area gym and are dieting hard. Quite honestly, I want to give my regular program some time before I resort to hard dieting. I'm just not motivated to make drastic changes to my eating habits right now.

What I did do was spend the weekend grocery shopping and cooking up a bunch of recipes at once. My thinking is that having delicious food in my fridge and freezer will prevent me from wasting time, money and calories dining out. So I made chili, pizza with turkey pepperoni, chicken noodle (& veggie) soup, baked chicken, an enchilada casserole and a Sparkpeople dessert. I also bought some clementine oranges and a bagged salad.

Hopefully, by exercising more consistently and keeping a food diary, I can lose a significant amount of weight by spring and summer.
