C25K W7D1....

I finally sucked it up and did Week 7 Day 1 yesterday. It wasn't easy but I still managed to finish the damn thing. Thank God for that.

Hopefully I will be doing Day 2 tomorrow. :-)

Vegetables Really Do The Trick!

Who knew? Just kidding. We all know the importance of veggies in our diet. However, it's the fact that they fill you up with less calories is what has got me excited. It's already a week and I'm down by a kilo (2.2lbs)! And I didn't even exercise on all seven days (I managed to squeeze 4 days though).

I've been loading up on green beans, cabbage, carrots, green peppers, strawberries and oatmeal. I cut down my intake of rice and I haven't taken Diet coke in a week! One week down, three more to go.

The First Few Days of June....

In my previous post I mentioned that I had gained a couple of pounds and was working to lose them this June.I also decided to tackle weekly goals. And looking at my habits so far I realized that the cliche "No pain, No Gain" is a fundamental truth. When we experience physical pain in the gym, we gain muscles and stamina as well as lose weight. When we painfully set aside the extra serving of ice cream or that croissant, we reduce calorie intake and lose weight. Are you seeing the connection?

So, as I sat down to analyze my eating habits, it suddenly dawned on me "I was eating two calorie-dense meals on a daily basis". Lunch and supper. So, I copied a 1200 calorie meal plan from the internet and adjusted it to include meals I like to eat. The result was beautiful. And guess what? The pounds have started dropping again. I love the feeling of being in control. So, I'm just going to continue planning my meals and exercise and sticking to the plan. Hopefully, if I'm good I will finally be under 200lbs by the end of July. I've also decided to put weigh-ins on hold till I reach 200lbs. After all, I don't think re-posting weight that I had already lost would make an interesting read for anyone.

So my fellow weight loss bloggers and readers, how has your week been so far? Any NSVs we should know about?
