Thursday Weigh In....

It's terribly hard for me to be a regular poster, when I'm not regularly following any plan. Whether that is counting calories, doing Weight Watchers, or even exercise.  Seriously.  And I feel guilty about it.  I HATE IT!  What I hate the continued gaining of weight.  Yep...

What's that mean, well to get accountability.  I've got 2 girlfriends that I'm going to be held accountable too.  I've got to do this!  VERY UNHAPPY with 20lbs up from my lowest. 

It also means time for some a solid plan and goals!!!!!!!

I'm going to stick to around 1200 calories for week 1, then up it to 1400 for 2 weeks, and then back down to 1200 calories. Also am planning on counting WW points (old), I know this works for me... I totally know this.  I plan to workout at lunch (gym) doing 30 mins strength and 20'ish mins of cardio (spin bike, treadmill, stair stepper). I am going to plan my meals and lunches a week ahead and I am going to stick with them. I'm going to wear my pedometer and get 10,000 steps/day. I'm going to drink 100oz h20/day. I am going to journal/track, and I'm going for 10 days straight to start with (I suck on the weekends). I'm going to figure out how to make my weekends work (ideas?). I am going to lose 8lbs the month of September!!!

Last Weigh IN (8/16/12) 170.4  
Starting TODAY at 173.2  +2.8lbs

1st Goal 9/27 ~ 165.2
2nd Goal 11/15 (my bday) ~ 157.2 (close to my all-time low)
3rd Goal 12/27 ~ 153 ~ under my lowest! Ending the year off right!!!

Mandie - I think planning meals in advance is the best thing you can do. I do this every week, right down to what I take to work for my lunch - the list goes up on the fridge and whilst I might vary the day I cook certain meals, I don't deviate from it! It really helps keep me on track and it also helps me when I'm doing my grocery shopping (and makes sure I don't waste money buying things I don't need).

You've got a good plan! Keep up your good work ;)
