May Goals

Diet: I did buy groceries more often, but ate a lot of hospital food. I will continue eating good food and shopping for food more often. I also will continue doing better on weekends. I am losing any desire for fast food.

Exercise: This will be difficult now with work travel & recovering from softball games, but I'm sticking with 14 workouts.

Weight: My goal for April was 246.0 lbs and my final weigh in was 245.5 lbs. so mission accomplished. With my retreat from exercise during my parents ordeal it's a testiment to good diet that I lost weight. My goal for May is 239.0 lbs. That is consistant with my 7 lbs./month so far.

Notes: April was shot to hell with my parents accident happining on the 8th. But I maintained my good diet choices and that proved to be key. This month will be another challange with starting a new job out of town, but I feel too good about my body to quit or be complacent now.

Lunch: Soup & Crackers

Dinner: Pasta, Shortcake.

Exercise: Morning workout (1)

Notes: I want to start stong this week with diet & workouts.

April Goals

Diet: Continue to shop for groceries more frequently, stick with packed lunches. My biggest challenge is more dicipline on the weekends.

Exercise: Foot still has some ache, so I'l going to move into cardio that would stress the foot very carefully. i might use my bike instead of running. 14 workout goal.

Weight: I'm going to stick with 7 lbs. as a target weight loss making my goal 246.0 lbs. Brwaking the 250 barrier will be great for my determination.

Notes: Good March, but I still don't feel it was my best effort...which means I have room to improve for April.

Friday, March 31, 2006

End of March Goal Review

Diet: I stuck with bringing lunches and planned more dinners this month than I did in Jan. & feb. I also hit more small trips to the grocery store to have better fresh food in the house. I threw away way less stale/bad food in doing so.

Exercise: I hit my 14 workout goal, but only had one time jogging. A foot spain kept me off the foot, I didn't want to push it. I still have the 5K in June as a goal.

Weight: My goal was 252.5 and I reached 253.0 so I'm pleased with this result. I more than doubled my loss from February. In all I'm pretty motivated by the overall weight loss & I don't feel I'm losing it at too fast a rate.

Notes: My attitude in March far exceeded last month. I feel back on track with good habits. Overall weight loss is 22 lbs. in 3 months, 7.33 lbs. per month. I think keeping an average under 10lbs. per month is a good plan for true long term success. I'll post my April goals ths weekend.

The March Plan

Diet Plan: Eat moderately, pack lunch and stick with it, know what I'm having for dinner a day in advance. Keep fresh fruits & vegetables in the house. Grocery shop for smaller amounts of food more often, to keep things fresh & waste less, I threw away a lot of food last month.

Exercise Plan: 14 workouts, 4 of which will be cardio workouts. I want to begin the routine of jogging this month so by spring I already have broken the legs in. I have a 5k race in June I'm going to register for as long as I'm healthy.

Weight Plan: I set the goal a little too lofty last month and then felt like a failure, which I wasn't. I set a goal of 12.5 lbs. and lost 3lbs. But I lost the 3 lbs. with what felt like an off track month, so I'll split the difference and go for 7 lbs. which wil set my goal at 252.5 lbs.

February End of Month Report

Goals: I didn't get after the lunch thing like I wanted, and went out more than I wanted. I still did not eat any fast food. 2 months of no fast food may be a record for me since I was about 12 years old. I also ate a little better at dinner time, but still didn't have a plan like I wanted.

Exercise: Barely made 13 workout goal (last one was today), but I DID make the 13 so that's good. I increased the difficulty slightly, but I am really in need of good cardio, I thnk in the next month the weather should provide some opportunity there. One thing I did find out this month that with less frequent workouts I felt less energetic which leads to lazier diet habits. I miss jogging for the health & mental welness it brings me, that's life in Ohio.

Weight: This is probably where most people changing health habits get hung up, including me. I feel like I've not lost anything but I checked my end of Jan. report and I was 262.5, so I have lost 3 pounds this month (curently 259.5 lbs.), which is more reasonable than the weight I lost (12.5 lbs.) in the first month. My goal of 250.0 lbs. this month was way too much to expect n one month. Long term vision is difficult at times, but if I look back I've lost 15.5 lbs. in total for a 7.75 lbs./month rate which is pretty good. Adding cardio in the mix of my workouts will help.

Notes: Wednesday I will roll out my March plan which will be more challenging in some areas & more realistic in others. Thanks to everyone who has left comments of support the last 2 months. I'm not quiting on myself. I see my Dad at 63 in rehab for a replaced knee & other health problems and know that is not where I want to be at that age, so now is the time to make life changes.

Phat Tuesday

Breakfast: Oatmeal, Coffee, Miuti-Vit.

Lunch: ??

Dinner: Chicken, Mixed Veggies

Exercise: Morning Workout (13)

Note: End of month weigh in = 259.5 lbs. I am not participating in a "Fat Tuesday" today, I'll be sticking to my plan. Bad day yesterday, so I just went home, cooked a good dinner, did some laundry. The best way for me to get over bad attuitude days is to get busy & I'll eventually forget about it.

Breakfats: Oatmeal, Coffee, Multi-Vit.

Lunch: 1 Slice Veggie Pizza, Side Salad, Diet Pepsi

Dinner: Grilled Chicken Salad

Exercise: Morning workout (12)

Notes: Really pissed off about my clothes right now. I don't have much to wear and what I buy I'm not comfortable in or it's a piece of shit that falls apart upon the first wear.This is my most negative day so far this year i regards to the plan. I feel like shit, look like shit & don't really want to stick to anything right now. I knpw I will, but I don't see end results anywhere right now. I know it's long term but it sucks being in the middle with clothes that don't fit well, and not wanting to spend money on fat clothes in the meantime.
