First week review

Monday, January 21, 2013

Woo Hoo ! Weighed in this morning and I’ve lost 5.8 pounds this first week ! WOW !!! I knew the first 5 or so pounds would come off pretty easily but this is wonderful ! The positive feedback reinforces what I’m doing and keeps me going.

What surprises me most is that I had pizza for dinner on Saturday. Having the pizza did not throw me off track, I followed my eating plan all day, exercised as planned, and got right back on track.

Today is Day 2 of my 2nd 3 Day 1000 Calorie Challenge

Plan –
B – oat bran/juice
L – grilled cheese/carrots
D – veg chili/brown rice
Exercise – rest day

Doing great with the exercise. I’ve exercised at least 30” every day for the past 8 days, plus about a week before that I was doing 10-20” a day of easy walking, getting back into regular exercise after being sick. Now it’s time for a rest day.

I’m also doing great with the snacks. The 1000 calorie challenges make me really think about what I choose as a snack since I don’t want to squander my calories on unhealthy foods. Snacks I’ve been choosing – yogurt, V8, meringue cookies. One time I had one serving of rice pudding. What an improvement !

I’m going to continue alternating 3 day 1000 calorie challenges with 3 days of regular calories (1200-1250) for now, evaluating the plan as I go along.

Motivation is what gets you started.
Habit is what keeps you going.
