I’ve been frustrated with the weight which has packed over the last two years and even more after my back injury. I’ve made the decision to stop trying and really do it! So today, I will share what I’m doing to stay healthy & Fit This Holiday.
Healthy & Fit This Holiday
First I want to share my goals! I’ve raised the bar and want to lose 30 pounds in 6 months. I am currently a size 6-8 depending on the brand, still fitting in a medium, but I feel more comfortable as a 2, so let’s do this.
If you’re thinking I’m crazy to do this on the month we eat and drink during the holidays, well my reasoning was, if I can do this in December, I can do this all year long.
Healthy & Fit Goals
Walk at least 10,000 steps daily.
Increase my fitness plans to 1 hour daily, 5 days a week.
Try out some new classes online.
Lose 30 pounds, yes!!!!
Health & Nutrition
Drink 8 – 10 oz. glasses of water daily.
Remove artificial sugar and reduce natural sugar from my diet.
Remove snacks at night.
Resume Intermittent Fasting 16:8, maybe try a longer fasting time.
Reduce carbs to 100 a day or less.
Totally remove white flour, white bread, starch and carb loaded oils and dressings.
In summary: low carb, low fat + intermittent fasting.
Try new recipes!
I started last Monday and I’m already seeing progress!
I will be sharing daily updates on our social channels starting on Monday – stay tuned.
Week 1 Update
5 workout days and 10K+ steps – didn’t quite make 10 K every day, but was able to walk more than 2 miles/day
Logged my calories, carbs, sugar and water using my fitness pa, a free app. Also planned my meals using it.
Drank more water, but didn’t meet my goal.
I’ve made two new recipes: a keto beef cauliflower fried rice & a chicken fajitas on a lettuce bed instead of on tortillas. I will post recipes soon!
Had trouble with intermittent fasting early during the week, but doing fine now.
Was able to stay within my 1200 target daily calorie goal.
LOST 3 POUNDS!
Using my scale to track it! It even gives me my BMI and water intake!
Desserts and snacks from my grocery list, out of sight, out of mind.
Fruits for now, some fruits have a lot of sugar and carbs, so I want to start being more strict and bringing things back later on.
While I’m not sure how my progress will be, I’m extremely excited to finally see my weight coming off!
