OK here I go again...I've done this before-now to just get back into the right mind set. I recently went to to doctors and weighed in 15-20lbs heavier then when I first saw them 2 years ago...The question is-where/how did I put that weight on? I sit for 12 hours a day for 4 days at work...I lack motivation when the sun is not shining. I have a bad case of EMS Butt...What is that. I work in the emergency medical services field...we sit for long hours and well..our butts is where all of our weight sits...time to work that off! My Plan: Hi Protien Low Carbs More fruits and veggies Work Out 30-60 minutes (follow Self Challenge work out) Keep in touch with new online work out buddy Take care of ME! Monthly Massages Enjoy each day Get fresh flowers weekly at the farmers market Smile more Keep jumk food (ie cookies, candy etc) to a minimum Listen to my body (its amazing what you have to say sometimes) And come here and jot down thoughts, moods, food, and work out for the day Today: Breakfast Cheeerios w/ 2% Milk (sorry I cant go any lower than that!) 3 Strips Bacon Work Out 5 minutes stretching 25 minutes elliptical Lunch 1 1/4 cup pasta 1 boneless chicken breast 3/4 cut lite Ragu sauce (not bad-a little thin) H20 NOT ENOUGH today! 16 oz @ gym drinking it in small doses since I got home I don't know what dinner will be yet...probably fresh fruit and a glass of milk. That's my plan...replies welcome!
