Hi There!!! Welcome Back!! I know, I know…here we are again. I’m getting back on track with the whole blogging situation.
I have some exciting news: I have lost 2 pounds! This may not sound like a lot, but as a girl who is a mere 5’2″ (if I round up!), 2 pounds definitely shows. I feel stronger in my abs, my clothes fit better and I feel comfortable wearing a 2-piece. I guess I should say I feel more comfortable wearing a 2-piece. We spent this weekend on a lake with some good friends and had a wonderful time!!
Here’s what I’ve been doing lately:
My Fitness Pal – I’ve done the whole record everything you eat through an app before (mostly Lose It! and Weight Watchers) and it would work out great for about a week and then I’d miss a day, figure I could skip another day, and then I would never update it again.
I can tell you that I have successfully tracked all my eats with My Fitness Pal (username: jmwhoward, let’s be friends!) for 2 weeks straight. I do give myself 1 day per work as a “cheat day” where I don’t track anything. That day this past week would be the day at the lake which would have looked like: an entire bottle of Skinnygirl mojito, chips, beer.
I have allotted myself roughly 1,200 calories per day if I don’t exercise. At first, I didn’t think that would be enough and I would definitely be hungry, but actually I’m not. I have stuck with eating fruit which is pretty low in calories and keeps me full. It definitely helps! So far, so good!
Scheduling Exercise – Last week I planned out all my work outs ahead of time and I actually stuck to it! So here’s the plan for this week:
Monday – Rest
Tuesday – 2 mile run & Fitnessista bridal bootcamp
Wednesday – Intervals on the elliptical
Thursday – No Limits Circuit class
Friday – Spinning class (my first one since high school! I’ll definitely update you on that!)
Saturday – rest
Sunday – yoga
How do you stay on track?
