My goals last month were to be sure I'm drinking eight glasses of water a day, and to eat our meals at home. I did pretty well on the first one. I did okay on the second.
Two weeks ago, things changed. While doing the yearly "pack away the winter clothes and bring out the summer clothes", Pea and I decided to do a clothing purge as well. We tossed out anything that we really don't wear. Then we began trying on what was left. We were both really upset to find most of it was too tight. I got on-line and found a "diet site" that looked good. We each plugged in our height and weight, and it calculated our Body Mass Index. It was no surprise that we are both in the Overweight category.
Since that day, we've been using SparkPeople to track what we are eating and to be sure we are within the calorie and other nutritional guide-lines. We've each lost a few pounds. We each have a bunch more to lose, and should be able to safely shed it all by December.
So, my goals for July focus on the main goal of getting out of that Overweight category.
- Do 30 minutes of cardio every day.
- Do weight training three times a week.
- Continue to track my meals and snacks, staying within the guidelines set for me to lose weight.
By the time August rolls around, hopefully I'll have lost another five or so pounds!
