Note: (4/27/2014) this week has been a complete fail so I'm starting over. I hate to say it for fear that I'll just fail again but no more trying... Do! (Cheers to Yoda.)
Below is the post I wrote a week ago about it:
Last week, I shared the website where you put money in a pot and participate in a weight loss group. Over the last few days, I've decided to give it a try without actually giving money to the website. I tried to convince my husband yesterday that I should get an iPad if I lose 4% in 4 weeks but I'm not sure I was convincing enough. Though that would be amazing motivation and he could probably find comfort in my track record so far.
I need a kick in the pants and I think this is it. This will be difficult and I'll probably be super grumpy but I want to prove to myself I can do this. Consequently, I'm modifying my April 30-day shred plan. This hasn't really been working anyway. So the new plan is to just exercise with no specific requirement other than for 30 minutes or so, probably walking away the pounds since that is a workout I don't dread and it still makes me ugly and sweaty. We also plan on pulling out a dance workout video we bought early in our marriage.
The goal: Lose 4% in 4 weeks
9.6 pounds or 2.4 pounds weekly.
- Eat less than 1300 calories daily with a focus on snacking on fruits and veggies.
- Exercise at least 5 days a week.
- See myself 10 pounds lighter.
- Continue with NFAD, 64+ ounces of water, no soda, and no treats.
Again, I'm a little anxious. This is going to be tricky. But I want to change. (Do you feel like you've heard that before?)
