Well, I wish I had better news. I’ve slacked off on blogging about my progress….and I’ve slacked off on going to the gym a bit. As some of you know, Starting in October, and continuing until the end of the year, it became very difficult to get out of bed and head to the gym. Counting calories and watching what I ate didn’t seem to matter as much anymore.
Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, eating seemed to just feel better than anything else. Some people struggle with drink, others drugs, my solace, my comfort is found in a nice frozen pizza, a box of mac-n-cheese, or something from a drive-thru. We each have our addictions, and as I spent a long time working on my weight loss, I had managed mine.
Now, that that’s out of the way, I can move on to progress.
Since the first of the year, I’ve gotten back into the swing of things. easing back into my plan and my diet. I managed to only gain a small amount of weight. about 8lbs.
So, I’m down 58lbs. That averages out to 6.7lbs a month since I started. This is below my goal of 10lbs a month. So, it’s time to do something to get my average back up. So, I’ve dropped another 200 calories from my budget. 1,600 a day doesn’t go very far……BRING ON THE SALADS!!!
Next, I have a goal of 600 calories burned at the gym 5 times a week. So, 5 days a week my net is under 1,000 calories and the other 2 days I’m under 1,600 (And before you ask, this has been cleared with my doctor).
I don’t know if I’ll hit my goal of 100lbs by May 1st, but I won’t be ashamed. 58lbs so far is great!
