It's a challenge, but so far so good. I enrolled in The Biggest Loser Club three days ago.
I haven't been following either their meal plan or their workout plan. However, I have been logging all my food intake and my workouts. This really is the main key to any weight loss program, I think.
The mere fact of writing down what I eat makes me hyper-aware that I need to alter what I put in my body and adjust the portions. The fact of writing everything is helping me make better decisions.
I'm struggling with staying within my calorie range of 1100 - 1400 per day but I know that cutting or adjust some of my regular comfort foods can help with that. My trouble spots are sugar cravings and my glass of red wine with dinner. I need to study the food plan, menu and shopping lists so I can get on track with that.
I have been working out every day and burning a minimum of 350 calories with my treadmill runs and circut on the weight machines. Today, I did a 6 mile run/climb on a trail at Will Rogers State Park. Half the trail is uphill and then downhill on the finish. We did the 2 mile lo0p 3 times. It was a good glute workout and I burned 768 calories. Next week I run a half marathon.
The BLC recommendation is to weigh yourself once a week. I've been cheating and weighing everyday and have lost 1 pound in the first two days. I'm happy with that. It's the right direction. Let's see how the rest of the week goes...
By the way, who do you think is going to be voted off next on The Biggest Loser?
