This Monday was the first time since I started Project Get Healthy that the scale didn’t move. 😦
While it didn’t go down, it didn’t go up either. 🙂
So I need to step up my exercise game.
Having said that I am going to do Ripped in 30 again starting on Monday. I will only workout on the week days. This is the kick in the pants I think I need. The plan is to workout first thing in the morning so I can come home and relax after work.
I’m fairly certain I can do the 4 weeks, it’s the 5th week I am concerned about. I am really hoping that I can get into the habit of morning workouts. Right now I am having a hard time getting my tail out of bed.
As for the food, with the exception of going out to brunch on Sunday, I have been at or below my 1400 daily calorie allowance. Keeping track of what I eat is working out really well for me. I just can’t say enough nice things about myfitnesspal.com. They have just about everything I eat already in their database so I don’t have to do any formulating or calculating of calories.
During the week I eat the same thing for breakfast, oatmeal with almond butter, craisins and flaxseeds. Lunch is either leftovers from dinner or a wrap/sandwich etc. Once I have entered my breakfast and lunch choices, I put in my evening cup of tea and cookies. Then I backtrack to see what dinner will look like. If I don’t have a lot of calories left for dinner I workout to earn some. 😉 Easy peasy!
This weekend I will take my measurements again to see if I’ve lost any inches since starting this journey. Also to get a baseline to see how effective working out 5 days a week for 4 weeks is.
Wish me luck or better yet, wish me perseverance.
