12 week plan update (week 6)

Monday, October 22, 2012

I created a good plan. It was simple and should have been and easy fix to my wandering. I didn't stick with it. The 2 things that will keep me losing weight are tracking my food and moving my body. I have been moving but not as consistently as I should. It seems to be all or nothing right now. I haven't been tracking my food at all. I have been eating mostly healthy but I'm sure too much.

According to my plan I should be tracking my food and exercising 30 minutes 5 days a week. How simple can it be? Starting right now I will go track my food and plan my workouts for the week. We leave for England on Friday and will be doing a lot of walking. The food will be more of a problem. I will track it, good or bad. When I get back I will add more pool time to my workouts and start back to Aqua Zumba.

    Tracking my food has been my biggest nemesis. Leah's suggestion about carrying a small pad with you is a good one. When you return, you can always log the info and see how you did! emoticon

    emoticon Take a little notepad with you to write down what you eat when you are in England. This way it will be fresh in your memory and you can carry it around with you and you can see what you've been eating all day.

    It can be hard to track your food if you don't set aside time each day to do it. Try to find ten minutes each day that you can sit down and type your food into the computer. I try to do as much of it as I can in advance so I know how many calories I am working with for the rest of my day. It won't be as easy when you are on your trip, but you can get back on track with daily logging when you get back.

    Enjoy your trip to England! emoticon
