Week 1 Results...

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

So, week one didn't exactly go as planned, but yet I cant say I have any complaints.. The Green Smoothie ONLY week did not work out.. I was starving by the end of the day so I decided to look into this idea a little more. I calculated the calories in the smoothie I had made for the day and, I guess I should have known better than to take on this challenge. I made a total of 64oz of smoothie and after calculating all the fruit and veggies I added, it came out to a grand total of (just under) 300 calories. Yep, only 300 calories.. for 64oz. So, with that, I came to the conclusion that I'd either have to drown myself in smoothies to survive, or just plain ol' starve myself.. Neither sounded like a good idea. I scratched the GS Only plan and decided to stick to the 1200-1500 cal plan. And, that worked. I didn't track my meals online, but I did make sure I didnt go over my calorie count..
FOOD FOR THOUGHT (No calories for this one! hehe)
"what you may not know is that eating too few calories can actually backfire and sabotage your weight-loss efforts. "

OH OH OH! I also really really made it to the gym... twice last week. First time was Friday (funny to say, exactly one month AFTER I signed up hehe). Then I went again on Saturday. I worked out again on Sunday at home, yesterday at the gym here at work.
Well, that ended my first week of my journey, and I am happy to report that I'm down 4lbs... ! That's more than the recommended 2lbs /week! YAY! Off to a great start? Despite some bumps, I'll say... I THINK YES!
Off to Week TWO I go!

    @BRAVELUTE - Yes, I love the tracker! At first it was a bit surprising how much calories add up throughout the day, especially with little snacks here n little snacks there. It was also eye opening to learn how many calories are in the different foods.. Some way more than I expected!
    The food tracker is a great tool!

    Low calorie diets over a period of 50 years are what got me to 100 pounds overweight. A 300 calorie would be great for a breakfast or other meal. If you are eating only fruits and veggies, be sure to also eat legumes and nuts to get the other nutrients you need.

    We are so lucky to have the nutrition tracker here to KNOW what we consumed right away, or even before we eat.
