My goal for the next 4 weeks is simple: get back the strength I lost so I can start working out and losing weight in earnest. After 4 weeks on crutches, and a subsequent 4 weeks not allowed to work out for various other health reasons, my muscles are so weak and stamina so low that I can barely stand in line for long periods of time. And no, snarky friends, that's not only because I'm impatient.
So - I'm not expecting to see a lot of loss in the next month, though I'm hoping by virtue of getting just a teensy bit more active, some will come off. (You guys know my theory about the body not wanting to carry excess weight, right?).
Phase 0 Goals (next 4 weeks):
- Track eating again via MFP or WW. Start at 1400 cals/day, decrease by 25 cals/day e very week
- Start with 10 mins light workout 4-5 days/week, increasing by 5 min intervals every week
- NOT GAIN WEIGHT
- Start eating healthier - break the bad habits that I've unfortunately gained as I've wallowed in self pity
- PT exercises 5 days/week
- 139 lbs
- 34.2% body fat
- Size 10
- Don't even ask about waist in inches
Aaaaaaannnnddd.... let the mortification begin. Apparently, the only way to keep myself accountable is public humiliation aka total weight transparency.
