Week one is in the books! Slow and steady is all I can hope for! Down 1.2 pounds. #25lbsin25wks
How hard can it be? Well.. I know that It can be very hard. But I will try. And I do realize it’s not all about the scale. It’s about how you feel. So if I get down to a point where 20 pounds is enough.. well then 20 pounds will be enough. But I know my body. And I know what I can feel/look like. And 25 is a pretty realistic goal for me.
So that is my goal. It seems huge at first. But really when you look at it, it’s only a pound a week. Which is totally obtainable. Even for me.
Of course my dear friend Amber doesn’t think I can do it.. and she should know me better. When someone tells me I can’t do something, I set out to prove them wrong. If you don’t believe me, read this post. So thanks for the push my friend!
So here I am. Back at this AGAIN.
25 pounds in 25 weeks. 25 weeks will end on August 3. How will I do this..
The good.. old.. fashion.. way.
Calories in… calories out.
I know this. I mean really, it’s not rocket science. I know the main component of weight loss is what you put into your body. I can work out all day long 7 days a week, but can ruin all that hard work in the kitchen. And that is my problem. My eating habits.
We are an on the go family. We eat out a lot and I know this needs to change. So over the next 25 weeks I will be actively tracking my calories in My Fitness Pal, getting in my 10,000 daily steps on my FitBit and working out at least 5 days a week.
Think I can do this? Follow along and see.
