My Goal:
current GOALS

1. BIG CHANGE- find that gumption that got me with PT in an acceptable lifestyle and weight!!. Gumption coming.... loving my biggest loser team, even tho I NEVER watch that show (or any show for that matter)
2. Exercise- Goal is 1 hr/day
3. Food- log it... thinking calories and generally not too many carb... altho money is tight so that is kinda tough right now.
4. Spend TIME meal planning/ bulk/ freeze/ crockpot. How much planning? I think a several hour planning session.... with constant kid interruption cd be....4 hrs just to get a handle on the contents of my freezer/match w. healthy recipes. That's just the planning part.
5. make tickers for eating exercise, food planning

Wed- 1 hr walk-
Thurs plan = walk
Fri plan- ellipt before HS co-op
Sa plan- walk and archer
Su plan- walk... maybe try to meet someone for this

About me:
I am motivated to be in losing weight mode and feeling pretty happy about that.

Diets I like:
I like Low carb! It gets me cooking..gets me in love with vegetables... then I like to add my elliptical plus meet w. friends to work out! I'm so social!!

Workout of choice:
Walks with friends or elliptical to good music work best for me. Home exercise equipment- elliptical, recumbant bike, weights, and treadmill. All in storage currently. Sometimes I get in a habit of long, sweaty cardio to good music... it is so good for me. Want to be like that again!

My plan:
Plan is whole foods/low carb and adding intense exercise. No obsessing w. weigh- ins! Weigh ins are every 12 weeks or so... otherwise my head gets crazy with the scale. I need to remember what works for me and stay steady. current GOALS 204 may 2015. get it back. 1. Low carb- lean protein, tons of veggies.. sparing oil, etc 2. Exercise- walking and hiking locally. Mostly w. Friends. lovely! been doing this lots! So good for my soul!! I need to start hopping on my indoor equipment for training for 5K/10Ks. 3. Food- log it! 4. Spend TIME cooking. Lots of savory Veggie/lean protein dishes = a happy satisfied me... then I stick to my plan! And I enjoy food! 5. make tickers for Goals 2014 = 60 pounds lost = yippee! Start 280.
