One pound a week
Tuesday, October 20, 2009
So rather than think of the full amount that I would like to lose, I've decided to break it down to one pound a week. That means I'm doing math to create a deficit of 3500 calories per week. Sunday morning began the count down from 3500. So far, I've created a deficit of 349. Sunday was awesome, today not so much. I woke up feeling too dizzy to stand up but managed to to so because I had to. Once I took care of everything (calling work, eating a banana, etc), I headed back to bed. That's where I stayed until 3:00 this afternoon.
Aside from my snacks being not that great (pumpkin pie, choc. chip muffin), I did reasonably well at getting my calories in. Drank my water and ate two servings each of fruit and vegetables.
I started a new treatment today. It's called MAT or Muscle Activation Therapy. It was amazing. Just the difference between how I felt/moved @ 6:30 and how I was an hour later... well, it was amazing. Two pregnancies, three car accidents and 12 half marathons have certainly taken their toll on my body. Hopefully, MAT, chiro and massage can undo all that.
-three good meals, two good snacks
-2 L of water
-six servings of fruit and vegetables
-some form of activity that will, hopefully, burn a minimum of 300 calories.
