Day One of the Rest of My Life

Friday, September 02, 2011

Ok. So August was a bust. I lost weight, gained, lost, and then gained again. I think a lot of it had to do with the health problems I have been having. I didn't have my surgery this past Wednesday as was planned. Some issues arose and needed to be addressed. Now I am scheduled to have surgery next Wednesday. Hopefully work will grant me the 2 days I need to have it done. This is where my problem could arise.

I went for a walk this morning. I love walking in the mornings best; however, I start working 1st shift on the 12th of no more morning walks :-(. I walked 4.06 miles this morning. Now I feel great. I just hope this energy surge lasts all day, lol. I will walk another 4 miles tonight after work as well. This is my goal....8 miles a day. I want to try to stay around 1400 calories, even though SparkPeople says I need almost a thousand more than that. I can't even come close to 2400 calories a day.

So I was reading through my monthly Fitness magazine. This lady was telling her story how she lost her weight. Now I understand everyone is different, but I figured maybe if I "up" my walking time and lower my calories to more realistic calories, I might actually see some results.

So this is my new plan for September: Walk 8 miles each day for 3 days. On the fourth day, I am going to do strength training (or maybe circuit training), then walk for another 3 days...and so on. At the end of September, I will see if this new routine worked for weight loss. I might throw in a half hour of jumping rope somewhere in there as well. I bought one a few weeks ago, but have yet to use it yet.

This is day one of the rest of my life. This weight is NOT going to miraculously disappear by itself. That would be nice...but not reality. So I am going to make September my "Give it my all" hour at a time. I am going to keep a notebook with me to ensure I keep track of everything I put in my mouth. This will be the month I lose. Or if not, at least I can say I did everything I was supposed to do.

    If it's an ablation you are having, I was at work the next day, if that's helpful. I know how hard it can be sometimes to get days off from work.

    Wishing you the best on your plan. :)
