5-4-3 Day 1 & 2

Okay, first off - I'm hungry...but hey, that means I'm burning some fat calories right?

Yesterday was day 1 of my "inspired" plan, and things went pretty well. I spent a lot of time the night before planning out my breakfast and lunch, so I could get most of my calories in during the morning and early afternoon...and topped things of with a 300 calorie salad for dinner. Total calories consumed for the day were a little over 1,500.

I also got in a 4 mile run, followed by 1 mile of interval incline walking - totally calories burned during the workout - 650 or so. My knee was aching a bit, oh I hope I don't have to go down that knee pain road agian.

I didn't plan out today as well, but I got my big breakfast in, my medium lunch and so far I am on track for the day. Not sure what I am going to do for dinner yet. I also plan on doing one hour of the interval hill walking tonight. (update: did my cardio & burned 575 calories, and I stayed on track with dinner - even though my husband was eating chips and drinking wine in front of me - bastard)!

Dinner is the toughest because that is family time. I do have hubby's support though, and he said he may even join me on my plan - eventually. Yeah, I won't hold my breath on that one - kind of like him starting running with me (he bought shoes about 5 months ago and has only worn them around the house to "break them in"). At least he is supporting me in my efforts though (update: not really), and I think I can stick to a small amount of protein and some veggies or salad for dinner and be good.

My goals: I'm a little self conscious about posting my weight (chick hang-up, I know) so I think I'm going to use my pant size as my goal post. Currently, I'm a size 12 and I want to get back to the size six I was when I first began dating my husband. I actually have a picture of us when we were first dating in a cute little oriental dress - that would be fabulous to be able to fit in that again! I don't know if a six is realistic for me anymore, an eight may be where I actually end up. I was comfortably an eight for all the years after dating, and up until I had my last baby (except during pregnancy, of course). But hey, aim high right - so I am shooting for a six.

You can SO do it. And you look hot in the dress and you can get in it again. Added bonus it is a timeless sex pot look... so you'll actually be able to wear it out!
