It's going to take a while to find my groove!

Good morning! Today I woke up deciding to make sure I get in at least 2 hours of cardio and some strength training. I also decided that I will not be eating anymore cookies for now, even though it was only 2 that I ate a few days ago. For me it's like a process of elimination right now as far as foods goes and what does or doesn't agree with me. My whole plan is not to deprive myself from eating everything good, but just to eat well balanced meals AND exercise daily. The hard part is getting my lazy booty up right now and doing the things my mind is telling me I need to do. 

I have been using the iPhone app My Fitness Pal to track my calories and I find that it's very helpful. In the past I've gone to log a food item on the site, see how much my calories would jump, and most likely make a wiser food choice (not always)... I have noticed that within a few days I have gone up a few pounds, it's scary, and I'm trying to figure out what I'm needing to change about what I'm doing or eating to stop more from piling on (I'm at 249.2 right now). I don't want to wake up tomorrow and be in the 250's because I worked hard to get out of them, so I took my walks (with a weighted vest) today and have been staying active throughout the day. 

The food I eat hasn't changed much, I have started incorporating some carbohydrates in but only about 1 thing a day like the Flatout Flatbread I will use to make a sandwich. Maybe I've been skimping on my veggies, yes, I have HA... I'll fix that though and start loading up on the green stuff!

BTW, sorry for no pictures... My computer decided that it didn't want to load anything today no matter how many times I tried :(



  1. I use my fitness pal too! I just joined yesterday. Find me on there...i'm JMeT123. We can keep each other motivated!

  2. Careful with the carbohydrates! I usually wait 3-4 weeks before adding any in! That might be what's causing your slight gains. Good luck with everything Heather. :)

  3. I think you're right Lowery! I've since decreased them and seem to be doing fine now :)
