I’m at the point in my weight loss journey where I’m trying to lose the last stubborn pounds
I’ve decided to post twice a week to keep myself accountable. I might even post more just to keep it up. Last time I weighed in, I was about 153.4 pounds. Therefore it’s time to kick it into gear. I wanted to be down to 115 by my birthday in the summer but that might not happen. I’m down to the last stubborn pounds. Weight loss was a lot faster when I was still in the obese/obese category 2 range. Now that I’m down to regular “overweight” it’s moving slower. The plan is strict eating and strict exercise. Nothing drastic, just what needs to be done. Tracking water intake is a must and 85% clean eating is the goal. I have gym clothes in my work desk so I have no excuses. I’ve been around the same weight bouncing back and forth between the same 5-pound range for about three or four months now so I think I’ve found my maintenance calories and/or I put on some muscle with the initial gym work I was doing.
I also know a lot of this comes from stress / not planning properly. At the beginning of my healthy lifestyle journey, I worked from home at least two or three days a week. This gave me a lot of time to focus on meal prep, proper macros and provided more discipline. Not being around bad foods, coworkers offering candy and extra stress makes it easier to stick to a meal plan. I’ll write about the things that helped me initially with avoiding all of the above.
Plan for this week
Monday – Strong Curves Week 4, Day 1 & 30 Minutes of Cardio [If I get to work early, the cardio will be replaced with Spin class
Tuesday – Strong Curves Week 4, Day 2 & 30 Minutes of Cardio
Wednesday – Strong Curves Week 4, Day 3, & Spin Class
Thursday – Zumba
Friday – Strong Curves Week 4, Day 4 & Spin Class
This is the plan, I hope to report back progress on Wednesday.
