Week 1 didn’t go so bad. I’m down almost 2 pounds – could be normal fluctuation but at least it didn’t go in the other direction, right?
I really tried to make healthier food choices. High points were lots of salads and veggies, low points were a bag of coconut M&Ms and a dessert hamburger and fries made out of cake and brownie.
Turns out I do need more structure to my exercise plan. My new goal is to run the Plymouth Fall Festival 5k September 12th, a little less than 16 weeks away. I’ll be starting the Couch-to-5k program (there’s an app for that!) It’s a 9 week program so I think I’ll just put the first week on repeat for a while and see what happens, then July 11th it’s go time. I hope by then to have shed several pounds and to be able to fit into my old exercise clothes. The beauty of this plan is it’s only 20-30 min, 3 days a week – I think I can handle that.
Here’s where I’m at:
Today’s weight – 141.3
Today’s BMI – 22.8
Goal weight – 130
Goal BMI – 21.0
Total weight lost – 1.7
