My Plan

I'm putting it here to hold me accountable, but also for me to keep track of what I'm doing. I did week 1 of C25K and that was it for workouts. I'm not going to lose weight by just doing that. So, here's my weekly plan with my options. I like options.

Sunday-Day 1 Week ___ C25K, strength training (weights or resistance bands)
Monday-Cardio (tae bo, walk/jog intervals on treadmill, elliptical, etc.)
Tuesday-Day 2 Week ___ C25K, strength training (weights or resistance bands)
Wednesday-Off (darn grad night class)
Thursday-Day 3 Week ___ C25K, plus additional walk
Friday-Cardio (tae bo, walk/jog intervals, elliptical, etc.)
Saturday-Strength & Cardio

I will work out for no less than 45 minutes (that shouldn't be too hard), with the exception of Friday. Friday, I can do 30 minutes only if I have plans that evening.

Now, the important part that is the make or break part of getting healthier. I can work out to my heart's content, but I'm not going to see a noticeable change if I don't change my food intake.

Breakfast-Limit to 300 calories
Snack-Limit to 100 calories
Lunch-Limit to 400 calories
Snack-Limit to 100 calories
Dinner-Limit to 800 calories

Total: 1700 calories

If I want to indulge, I have to compensate from another meal or snack. 800 calories may seem high for dinner, but I'd rather overplan than underplan and wonder why there are no results. One meal a week will not be counted. That will give me that one chance to have what I want.

As much as I hate it, I'm sticking to my Sunday weigh-ins. Weekends tend to be horrible for me, so I've got to keep myself accountable. I will admit that my weigh-in yesterday probably would have been lower had it not been for the eating Saturday night at my in-laws.

I'm making myself a paper food journal to document what I eat and approx. calories. I've done before, but I think having the proof right there in front of me will help.

I want this.

    Sounds like a great plan. Stick with it - that's really all you have to do. Stick. With. The. Plan.
