Yesterday I reached 50.8 down. I was thinking I needed a way to remember this day! And a SF gave me a great idea. I've decided to make a book of my weight loss journey! Today my GD made me up a sheet to track my daily goals, weekly totals, and end of the month total. Each monthly sheet will start with the first day of the month through the 28. I decided 4 weeks every month was easier to calculate. That way it doesn't matter what day is the 1st. And every month has at least 28 days. So it works perfect. We made a couple of different sheets before we had one that works great for me!! She did a good job!! I have 6 daily goals listed: Fitness, steps, calories, water, read bible, make bed. And there is also a spot to record weekly weigh ins and total monthly weight loss. My mom gave me a scarp book to use.
Now I need to come up with a reward system. A weekly reward for reaching my weekly goals, monthly reward for reaching goals & 5+lbs lost, Small milestone (new goal weight at dr appts met), major milestone 50+ loss!!!
June's daily goals: M,W,F 35 minute fitness; SU,T,TH 45 minute fitness, calorie 1200-1400; water 10-15 glasses; Steps weekly 36,400 (5200 daily).
Need to lower sodium intake maximum 2000; increase fiber 30-40; need to design new menu. Nutrition guideline: Carbs daily total 135; 30 per meal & 15 per snack;
Fat less than 36-42 depending on calorie intake (less than 3 per 100 calories); Protein 55-65 (I usually eat more protein than that); Calories 1200-1400 (I'll try for 1200 that way I have a cushion in case of snack attack) Really need to get that under control. I guess it's an emotional problem because it seems to happen at the end of the day- when I'm calming down-destressing-it's like a nervous condition-or-anxiety attack. I get feeling off balance & shaky inside so I start eating to calm that feeling. As if I think food heals. Which I know it doesn't. Even when sick I start eating.
Wow that is interesting! I filled out May's sheet-- even though I had those days of snacking too much- My avg daily calorie was 1,235. I did better than I thought!! I really like this chart.
May's total fitness minutes: 1,064; steps 262,561; calories 34,568
