Summer 5% Challenge Nutrition and Exercise Commitments
Friday, June 13, 2014
Another 5% Cgallenge is upon me, starts in a week. Now is the time for me to refocus and get my affairs in order. After this week I feel I've learned some lessons.
1) a lot of grease is BAD, so so so bad (my belly is still recovering)
2) water is a must- I'm always thirsty but when the only thing I've made available is pop, that's why (preparing for caffeine headaches all over again, yuck)
I will go back to my diet of mostly fruits and veggies with lean BAKED proteins. Me and grease need a divorce, I feel like absolute crap.
I will aim for the calories identified for me on here which is between 1200-1500. When I stay within this, I'm successful at losing consistently.
I will not eat past 8 at night and I will keep low calorie snacks available eat home (hello jello/whipped cream, watermelon and cantaloupe yum!)
I WILL drink my water Every. Single. Day. No exeptions.
Exercise will be trickier. I have a pulmonology appointment on July 11 because I haven't been able to breathe without support of rescue inhaler every 4 hours.
I will commit to at least 20 minutes per day of very low impact movement (yoga, Pilates, chair work outs, light strength training) until I get the green light from the doctor to do more. I tried walking and was really close to an asthma attack. Don't want to relive that one at all.
I feel confident with this plan. Can't wait to get started!!!
