So...I've been MIA on the blog for way too long and decided now is the time to get back into the swing of things. I wanted to be honest with my weight struggles and a place to keep up with the progress that I'm making.
First, I'm under a doctors care for my weight loss goals, as working with a trainer and nutritionist just wasn't providing the results I was after....read...I didn't lose a single pound in 6 months! My doctor determined that I'm insulin resistant and started me on some meds that will help with that. Apparently, they work! I've lost 8 pounds (according to my scale) in about 2 weeks. I'm excited for my one month weigh in on the 20th.
Today has been a good day.
I've kept within my caloric goal. I walked this morning for 30 minutes and worked out for an hour this evening. My energy has been great! Now to keep it up for the duration of the week.
Goals for this week:
1. Keep my calorie goal (1200) in check
2. Walk 5 days this week for at least 30 minutes
3. Strength train at least 3x this week
4. At least 64oz. of Water
5. 7 hours of sleep each night
