Starting over - New week 1
Sunday, May 01, 2011
So I went over my eating habits and charts and stuff for the last few weeks and I couldn't believe how many calories were coming from snacking and from PEPSI alone. I then went to my weight tracker and saw that I had set my 140 lbs lost for July 2012 and that my fitness goals were pretty high. Basically I was setting myself up for failure.
This week I'm armed and ready. I've set my goals properly, reset my weight for what I am this week and for how much I wanna lose and by when and how much I plan on working out in a week. My calorie range used to be between 1900 and 2300 and now it's down to 1370-1720. I'm cutting pop completely out of my diet but will still drink my one cup of coffee a day and sub in teas and water instead of pop to keep the nasty caffeine headache away until I feel I can deal with it. I bought a food scale on friday and am planning complete meal plans for the next week or two weeks to make sure everything I eat is healthy and within every range. I'm taking any last minute bad choice out by being prepared for the whole week. The stupid thing is.. cutting pop out will bring me down to that new range on it's own... which kinda makes me disgusted with how much I am drinking. I went shopping today and didn't buy any junk at all which made me proud of myself. My fridge is FULL of vegetables and my freezer full of lean meats and frozen veggies. I have a full fruit basket on my counter and the last bottle of pop allowed in this house is half full and will be empty by tomorrow and we also just threw out all the half empty bags of chips to remove any temptation. I found an old recipe book I got for christmas a few years ago that is full of low fat low calorie low sodium recipes and I'm actually pretty excited to try all of them.
So here we go. Starting all over again. I know I don't have to but a fresh start just feels good to me. So let's go week 1. Time to start my meal plan :)
