Alright-it’s time to get this party started. Time for me to kick my butt into gear and start taking care of myself, but in order to do that, it’s important to know what I’m starting out with. I’m one of those girls who likes bar graphs, and other visual aids, so you’d better believe that throughout this journey, I will be creating a few presentations for you all 😉
What I currently consume in an average day:
A bowl of captain crunch with crunchberries, with 2% milk for breakfast
For lunch I usually eat a sandwich or some sort of Bertolli (frozen italian)meal with my man. (note: my lunch is normal people’s dinner time)
For dinner I usually get a grilled cheese sandwich, an order of tots, and a 32 oz Coke zero from the hospital cafeteria.
I plugged this into Sparkpeople.com calorie counter (thanks hesmywatermelon!) and here is the breakdown of my average days calories:
total calories: 1589
Total carbs: 172
Total Protein: 50
EEK! That’s all I have to say about that
My Initial Measurements:
Now-it’s not super important to me if I lose actual pounds or not, I just want to be toned again, so for me I’m looking more for changes in measurements, not necessarily changes on the scale. Note: all measurements are in cm.
Waist: 92, Hips: 108, Bust: 109, Arms: 36, Thighs: 62, and my current weight is 172 pounds.
I currently wear a size 14 clothes.
Today, I’ve taken my initial measurements, mowed the yard (which was a workout simply because of the incredible heat!), and set up our guest room into my own little gym. I’ve got my measurements up on my dry erase board. I pulled out my yoga/pilates mat, re-inflated my exercise ball, found my freeweights, and set up my television for any DVDs I may find helpful (I’ll be asking around for the 30 day shred at work tonight. Thanks MissSydney, Rosiebear, and melisslp). Tomorrow am when I get off, I’ll be headed to the pool to swim some laps (thanks greeneyed moon).
As I said before, I’m going to try to incorporate all of the ideas I’ve heard from all of you wonderful bees during this journey, and I’m super excited to be sharing it with all of you!
