After writing about two blogs that I follow, I thought this might be an appropriate solution to my dilemma. I hope it will make me more consistent about tracking what I eat and how much I move in a day. I will note my activities at the gym (weights, and miles moved on the various machines I use). I would like to also at least report on my eating. For now I will just list which fruits and veggies I ate. I know that if I can eat enough of them I will do better.
Tuesday, November 15: At the gym: Biked 5 minutes and 25 minutes on the treadmill. Biked around town and walked at the dog park.
Fruit: Apple, banana. Veggies: 2 cups broccoli and lettuce in my wrap.
Wed. November 16: At the gym I spent 25 minutes on the treadmill, biked to work. Veggies: 2 cups broccoli and more lettuce on my wrap. Fruit: banana and apple. I did track my eating: I’ve had about 2000 calories, and I’m “allowed” 2106 of them.
Thurs. Nov. 17;: At the gym but left early because the music was driving me bonkers. Tracked my eating on my Nutribase and I’m falling below the line. Added carrots to the mix. I did eat 5 fruits/veggies today. On the TOPS scale I was 224.5.
Friday, Nov. 18: Good workout at the gym – weights and I managed to run at 5.1 mph – a surprise! Who knew? Followed the menu plan I set out. Weighted 222.5 at the gym. Still not sure I’m eating enough fruits and veggies. More work on that tomorrow! I think I stayed below my calorie allotment, but I can’t properly enter the Irish Coffee I enjoyed this evening!
Thurs. Dec. 1: TOPS weigh-in 225.00. Mostly a good day, except for the 6 pm. Mars bar. 1.5 cups veggies at breakfast, veggie soup, grapefruit, apple, banana
Friday, Dec. 2: The first of several Christmas events is today. Day 3 of eating dinner for breakfast – chicken and veggies.
