End of Week Two: Grade - A

Sunday, September 07, 2014

End of Week Two: Grade - A

The good - I am tracking food, eating fewer calories and losing weight.
Weight went from 349 down to 346. Calories were on track for week. Workouts were there with a thousand calorie workout.

The plan remains the same.
---------------------------------------
Track food and limit weekly calories to 14000 calories (2000 a day). Fresh fruit and raw vegetables do not count in calories.

Exercise - keep up the pace and increase gym visits to increase calorie burn. Once a week - 1000 calorie workout. That's the plan. This is my challenge - Paul's Challenge.

Motivation - Stagnation - Paul's Challenge Week 1 Results

Sunday, August 31, 2014

End of Week One: Grade - C

The good - I am tracking food, eating fewer calories and losing weight.
Weight went from 353 down to 349.

The bad - Did not execute to plan.
Calories were supposed to be limited to 14000 a week not counting fresh fruit and veggies. I went over calorie limit for week by 1807 calories. Over indulged on cookout on Tuesday resulting in a 2400 calorie excess for day.

Exercise - No 1000 calorie workout. Took too many days off (injury is an excuse and a good one but what about today?

The plan remains the same.

Motivation - Stagnation - Paul's Challenge

Sunday, August 24, 2014

So this has been the summer of good and so-so - Exercise - good, Food - so/so. I probably gained a few pounds (less than 10) this summer.

Summer cookouts and parties are winding down. Time to focus again.

Started 2014 at a whopping 381. Started summer at 347. Last weight in a week ago was 353. My goal is to get down to 381 - 51 pounds for 2014 = 330. That is 23 pounds in 4 months.

Goals
End September at a low weight for year
End October in the 330s
End November with less than 5 pounds to go
End December 330 or less.

How
Track food and limit weekly calories to 14000 calories (2000 a day). Fresh fruit and raw vegetables do not count in calories.

Exercise - keep up the pace and increase gym visits to increase calorie burn. Once a week - 1000 calorie workout.

That's the plan. This is my challenge - Paul's Challenge.

Campaign Healthy Life - Missions Update

Thursday, May 08, 2014

Current Status - All systems are go - Exercising, eating right and in good frame of mind. Lose 2 Win team is on fire (small group of Sparkers really motivated).

Mission 1 was to lose 11 pounds in January and develop good habits - Accomplished.

Mission 2 was to lose 18 pounds by April. - Accomplished officially tomorrow weigh in. Over a month late but I did it. I was unable to exercise in Feb - mid April due to injury.

Mission 3 was to get in good frame of mind. I try to do some of mission three but not all of it. I did start a grateful thread on Lose2Win and 300 team.

So now here I am - Early May - I have lost 31`pounds and now on scale (Dr. scale only goes up to 350).

My next goal - 340 by June 15 (My Birthday). Keeping it simple!
