227.

Friday, January 01, 2016

My official "start" weight. I got up to 244 while I was pregnant, and was ~220 after delivery. Between breastfeeding, weaning, maternity leave, going back to work, other life chaos I've been eating whatever I want and not checking the scale. Now that I am getting back on track, I guess this is where my journey will begin. This is the heaviest I have ever weighed while not being pregnant, the highest before being 220 when I was in college. Given the reasons for being so large currently, I am not going to beat myself up over it - I am just going to start here and move forward. I have lost weight before and know that I can do it again, and I will. I want to be the best mom possible to my now four month old son. I want to be healthy not only for me, but so that I can teach him how to be healthy as well - something that I didn't really have growing up, that healthy lifestyle.

To help hold me accountable, I have set up some weekly goals for myself for the month of January as I work my way back into this.

BLOG. Every day, even if only an emoji. So that I can keep a record of my journey and not forget to spin that darn SparkWheel, lol.

Smaller portions, stay under 1500 calories a day. Try to eat more protein, fewer carbs. EDUCATE myself on healthy eating for February.

HIIT training (on exercise bike or treadmill - C25K) 6 times a week with one rest day.

I'm hoping to take it easy getting back in the swing of things. I know myself and know I will push myself unrealistically hard in the beginning to see results, but just in case set my goals small so as to not overwhelm myself. I hope to lose 10-15 lbs by February 1st, one month from today.

Wish me well!
