Today is the first day of Carolyn's Summer Challenge which I have joined in on to keep me accountable on my weight loss goals. We have 8 weeks until the official start of summer and 8 weeks to push ourselves to meet some goals. My goal, of course, is to loose a few pounds...well more than a few.
I will be sticking to my 5-4-3 diet plan. I'm actually liking it...my first week went pretty good and I think I am down a couple pounds. Sometimes I have the feeling of what to do with myself in the evenings since snacking isn't an option anymore, I eat out of boredom, maybe I should do sit ups instead. I keep a food diary though, and so I know when I am done...easy, peasy...page is full = no more food in the mouth. Breakfast is the only meal I really have to put some thought into...and that definitely takes more time than skipping breakfast...but I have a few different breakfast meals figured out that I like and get me my morning calorie load.
I'm going to try and keep the following exercise schedule:
- Monday - rest
- Tuesday - 4 mile run and strength
- Wednesday - cardio cross train (usually interval hill walking)
- Thursday - 5 mile run
- Friday - 4 mile run and strength
- Saturday - cardio cross train and yoga
- Sunday - long run
I took some before pics, but I don't think I will post them yet. I'd rather have some after pics that I am proud of to put up next to them.
Be checking in again with my progress this Friday.
