Weeks Left Until Summer: 15
Thursday, March 10, 2011
Countdown to summer begins!! There are 15 more weeks until summer and I'm finally back to 122.2!
Since I started going to the gym, I have gained weight (been weighing in between 123-125 lbs for almost 2 months). I have been working out 4-5 times a week (at least 30-50 mins of cardio and strength trained, 3 times a week for 30-40 mins). I assumed it was temporary water weight from changing up my workout plan, increase in appetite, or a mixture of a few things.
After almost 2 months of going to the gym, I finally realized that I never calculated how many calories I should be eating to lose weight at my current weight; I have only been eating to maintain my weight. Since starting my weight loss, I haven't been tracking my caloric intake, but as I get closer and closer to my goal weight, tracking calories and eating clean are extremely important.
Yesterday was the first day that I began tracking my caloric intake and will continue to track my calories from now to June. I should be consuming anywhere between 1350- 1750 calories daily. I will also continue to zig zag my calories (eat more calories on my most active days and less calories on my less active days). I'm hoping this will help me lose these last 7-10 pounds.
My main focus this month is to finally get to 120!
Hope you all are doing well. Make the next 3 months to summer count!
