So for the past two weeks I have been in the beginning of my weight loss journey.
My motivation has been my upcoming trip this May to Beaufort, SC! I am SO excited! But, I want to wear a bikini with CONFIDENCE when I go to the beach. So I am ready to drop some pounds!
I began by downloading the myfitnesspal app by underarmour to help me track my calories. I had NO idea how much food I was eating!
So when I began on January 5 I weighed 166 lbs (I lied and put 165 because I am a disgusting human being). Today, January 13, I weigh 162 lbs! That is the least I’ve weighed in 5 years, and ALL I have done is cut my calories to less than 1,380 per day. It’s an easy app to use and I can get everything I need out of the free version which is why it works for me.
Today my husband and I went for a 15 minute mile walk and I felt SO good and when I entered the activity in my app it said I burned about 69 calories. The good feeling plus the added effect on my calories just really motivated me to start bringing exercise into my weight loss journey.
I began this journey with a 30 day yoga challenge that quickly tapered off because it is HARD to take 15 minutes to do yoga at night when everyone is running around like wild banchees. So I found this 30 day challenge calendar and I am going to begin it tonight! It seems way more my speed and I find the switch up really refreshing.
SO I am going to hold myself accountable on my blog, and I am going to log my weight with more honesty (because I am only hurting myself). I will log my progress every week and hopefully this will inspire someone to take the plunge! If I can do it anyone can do it!
If anyone wants to join in or try the challenge feel free to share your results with me! I can cheer you on!
Also, any healthy dinner recipe suggestions are appreciated! Cheers to us!
