Down 2 pounds.
Starting Weight: 229.8
Last Week's Weight: 229.8
Current Weight 227.8
Total Loss: 2.0 pounds.
Since I've officially set a weight loss goal for myself, and announced it to the whole world on my blog, I figured it was time to officially reset my mentality. First up, the new goal:
I want to lose 30 pounds by the end of 2012.
Doesn't sound like much, but with how much I've been struggling over the past two years, it will be a huge triumph to succeed. I desperately want to be under 200 pounds. That's been my goal from day one.
I'm feeling a little bit like an idiot for starting and stopping so many times. I just didn't feel like my last "go of it" was really with full commitment. I want to start fresh and really, REALLY go at this again. I'm so sick of worrying about my stupid weight. I want it to be over!
So here is my plan (for now, I reserve the right to change it at any time):
Track my food daily.
Eat between 1800-2000 high-quality calories a day.
Drink 4 liters of water daily.
Eat at least 5 servings of fruits and veggies daily.
Limit added sugar to less than 30 grams per day.
Monday: 30 minutes interval cardio, lower body and core strength
Tuesday: 30 minutes interval cardio, upper body strength
Wednesday: Rest day
Thursday: Super, crazy intense cardio and strength interval workout (yet to be determined!)
Friday: Rest day
Saturday: 30 minutes interval cardio, lower body and core strength
Sunday: 30 minutes interval cardio, upper body strength
Write a weekly blog post on SparkPeople recounting all the emotional “goo” for the week.
Spend Sunday evening preparing for a healthy week by cooking food, planning workouts, etc.
Browse motivational stories and blogs one day a week.
And also, since I'm resetting, it's time to reset my milestones and rewards. Here they are:
