I have a mission. I want to try to lose 10 pounds a month. Except this month is halfway through, so I'll settle for 5 pounds for July. I've been working on getting my eating under control, and this coming week I'm going to fit in exercise.
I have scheduled my exercise every day this week. Monday and Wednesday I work a little longer but my kids should be napping when I get home so I can fit in a 30 minute walk on the treadmill after my husband leaves for work (about 5 minutes after I get home). Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays I get off earlier and have a few hours before my husband has to leave for work. The plan those days is to go to a nearby park to walk around to spice up my surroundings while burning a sweat. If the weather doesn't permit that or I don't feel like it, then I will go home and exercise instead. Saturdays I get off early and my husband doesn't work so that's a day where I have a lot of free time, although I usually going grocery shopping right after work.
That's the plan. Eat smart, start cardio. I am 234 pounds, with barely any exercise at the moment. I gotta start slower so I don't burn out. I have an appt with my new general practitioner on the 24th. I'll make sure she gives me a thumbs up for my journey and see if there's any other problems that I don't know that are going on in my body.
Today I was conscious with my eating. I am in control. I'm at 1226 cals, 30 net carbs, 77g fat, and 66g protein. I'm aiming for low carbs but not killing myself to stay low, it's just what happened today. I'm on the low end for protein, high end for fat, and about 400 calories shy of the bottom of my caloric range. Gives me a little wiggle room for a small snack before hitting the hay tonight.
