You can’t outwork a crappy diet…
My new mantra to live by!
Starting BMI: 24.5
Last Week’s BMI: 23.6
Current BMI: 23.6
1. Reiterate my goal and where I stand in reference to this goal:
I’m 5’8″ and have a goal weight of 142# (BMI of 21.6), so I have 13.5# to go.
I’m currently wearing size 10-12 jeans, and I’d love to get to a solid eight. I look damn good as an 8!
I’ve been at 155.5# for 11 weeks now… I’ve giving myself two more weeks (until Stells is 6 months old!) to hang out here, and then I really need to kick my butt into gear (though I’m still going to be careful to not fuck with my milk supply). In the meantime, I’m going to look for a new pair of running shoes (any suggestions?), get my C25K program loaded on my iPod, and try to get a handle on my eating/drinking habits, which have kind of gone to shit lately.
2. Discuss what I am going to do to achieve my goals:
Progress on last week’s activities:
*Eat a salad for at least 5 meals. – 3x. I am SOOOOO bored with the salad I’ve been eating. It’s quick and easy (a modified cobb), but I’m bored with it, so I’ve been avoiding it. Any suggestions for a new salad to throw together at lunch would be appreciated! I try to stay around 350 cals.
*Work out at least 3 times, including ab workouts EACH TIME. – 2/3 and 0/3. I did a 1.5 mile walk last Wednesday and a 3.5 mile walk on Saturday. No abs. UGH. Also something I need to concentrate on. I’m so tired of my pants fitting so tightly in the flat tire region.
*Cut back on the alcohol consumption (this is hard, since BBQ season is starting up and we get together with friends pretty regularly and we’re all beer drinkers!). – Epic fail. Again. Also something I need to kick into high gear!
Activities & goals for this coming week:
Find a new salad to eat for lunch (or at least a meal with lots of leafy greens).
Get ready to start the C25K program and try jogging with Stella in the stroller at least once.
Write up an ab routine to start following. Post a calendar somewhere to mark when I’ve done it.
On-going Life Style Goals:
Drink 8oz every time I sit down to nurse Stella or pump (drinking roughly 100oz water/day).
Cut back on alcohol consumption until I’ve reached my goal weight.
