If you always do what you've always done..
You will always get what you've always gotten.
It would be ideal if I could continue to eat the way I do, and exercise at the level I've exercised and somehow manage to lose 25#. It's a fantasy.
Things gotta change.
I normally eat 1200-1400 calories. I suspect that I need to eat more... but eat healthy. So I'm aiming to up my calories to the 1500-1800 level, get my fat intake to 20% calories. Not sweat the protein or complex carbs. That fat intake is a killer.
And exercise... not necessarily more but HARDER. Get that heart rate up to 130 (my doctor assigned target number) for atleast 30 minutes day. And ADD daily stretching and strength training.
If I lose a healthy 1#/week... I could be down to my goal weight about 1/1/06.
So, today I will make all those body measurements... (gulp) POST THEM.
I'm using the FitDay CD to track my food, exercise, measurements... everything. So it's easy to keep track. The pain is filling out for forms for all the foods I eat that aren't in their database. They said a couple years ago they were coming out with an update, but I haven't seen one yet. Wish they would ask me for some of the feedback in making the updates. (can you imagine they have you working faster going uphill than down?? and that part isn't customizable).
Belly (below navel):38"
And update them biweekly. Help appreciated.
It's 5 pm. I have dinner planned, and I need to eat 300 more calories later... but I am already over my fat intake. So if I have a smoothie, the soymilk will add 5 more fat grams. If I have a salad later.. the dressing will add more fat. How the heck am I going to get 300 more calories without any fat?? This has always been the confounding point for me.
