Weigh in Day
Sundays are my days to weigh in. It keeps me accountable on Friday and Saturday evenings, which used to be high calorie meals and drinks. I lost one pound this week, which is great. My weight loss goal for March is 6 pounds. How will I get that? Well, I will be following Bob Harper's fitness plan and upping my calories to 1600 each day. Because I am nearing my goal weight, I know that my calorie deficit should not be as big as it once was. I am aiming for a 500-700 calorie deficit each day. Sunday is my day off. I have learned not to go crazy, as my stomach cannot deal with it the next day and I feel awful too. I am excited for this new fitness challenge. This month I must also focus on my half marathon training. Such an exciting month. As far as nutrition goes, I will continue eating 3 meals and 2 snacks. I will eat more calories in the morning and early afternoon. My hunger in the evenings is usually low now that I have trained myself to eat more in the mornings. Very exciting. Even though I wish that I have lost more faster, I am thankful that I am truly making changes. I am living in a healthy way.
