Man, I could not think of a catchy blog title! I am sitting her cross legged on my couch, enjoy my first diet sunkist of the day. 99 ounces of water in, I cracked open a cold one. Oooh, it burns me so good.
One of the things that I find different about using the dailyplate/livestrong app for tracking my food is that it doesn't just go off a set number of calories that YOU want to eat a day. After you put in your height, weight, normal info, it asks you how much you would like to lose per week. I have selected 2 pounds. Then, it takes in account of what you say is your normal activity level for a normal day and it generates a goal. Mine is 1,445. In other words, I can eat 1,445 calories a day and lose 2 pounds a week. Then you can click on the little circles add food or your exercising (only 150 for me today thanks to disc golfing).
It's nice. And I have stuck to it so far (it's been nearly a week...golf claps).
I didn't eat breakfast as you can see (we woke up late and I was chugging water). Lunch was my homemade tomato soup, and dinner is yet to come. You will see that my snacks are leading the charge...due to the two skinny cow ice cream sandwiches I have consumed. Those bad mamma jammas are good!
I didnt have to workout this weekend thanks to already doing cardio 4 times and circuit 3. (my goal is cardio twice and circuit 3).
I am feeling good and staying on track. Historically though, we know I do well for two weeks...and then...well...mommy strays.
I have bought a variety of different things to snack on when and if I feel like I need something sweet. Strawberry applesauce, pear chunks in light syrup, apple and peanut butter, greek yogurt with fruit on the bottom and granola mixer. I also have been enjoying FUZE slenderize drinks (20 calories). I have one a day.
I have my lunches prepared for the week (tomato soup with feta). I have my snacks planned. I have my breakfasts. I got this. I got this. You got this? You do. I know it.
