This month (JAN) has been bitter sweet. I got back on track with SP, started Zumba and the gym again after my ankle injury, and got back down to 236 from 240. My biggest accomplishment has been no fast food for the entire month (almost, Subway on date nights and Pizza @ the Italian Rest for the 4 year anniversary with the BF). I've also managed to add more fruits and veggies. Before I never ate them :/ but now I do!
My biggest challenge has been finding my balance. I should stick with SP's recommendations but burning the calories that they recommend, I feel like I don't get enough fitness in so I KEEP GOING OVERBOARD. They suggest 1890 and I burn 3300 AND DON'T LOSE WEIGHT
I get frustrated because I work so hard and don't see progress................... I want to reach 229 sooooooooooooooooooooooo bad!!!!
February will be tough... I'm going on a trip for 4 days which will keep me away from SP and have me eating fast food BUT I'm aiming for salads, chicken, no fries, smart sides, portion control and I'm packing fruits and veggies for snacks and I'll stick them in the frig at the hotel. Dessert will have to be limited too. It will be cold so not much walking outside and I'm not sure I want to pay the $15 fee for the fitness room and if I do, it will be one day only! The BF isn't up for the indoor pool so I don't know about that either but it will be a good pre-valentines day trip and time for us to spend together.
1. Drop at least 6 lbs. I usually aim for 8 BUT 6 for this month.
2. Try Benefiber to get more fiber into the diet
3. Have a productive first meeting with the dietician
4. Keep with the fruits and veggies
5. Eat and workout according to SPs recommendations.
6. Become more active while at home, actually use my wii fit!
I've been trying to rush WL bc I have all this spare time that I'll NEVER have again, at least not for another 5 years so I won't to make the most of it. Plus, I'll be leaving for a 5 week teacher bootcamp in June in which my exercise will be out the window. I'd love to see 199 by September OMG.... that's so far away. It would be less of a worry for me if I knew that my time was my time.. but with bootcamp, training, a new career, and all that... my time is only MY time for a limited time.
Some days I just want to scream.. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
Okay I'm done for now and I'm going to do the only thing I can do.. stay focused and worry about TODAY
ME TODAY!! (a few weeks ago)
ME during sophomore year of undergrad & where I wannnnnnnnnnnnnnna be again & then surpass!
