I realized that I have become lax on my fitness and health goals. I am not paying as much attention to what I am eating. I am not exercising anymore. I FEEL fat. I have been on Nutrisystem for 7 months. I have lost a little over 50 pounds.
But I have stalled.
I am not losing. I had all you can eat sushi this weekend and yesterday; yesterday I had Subway for lunch and Jimmy Johns for dinner. I was not that much over my calorie goal but this cannot continue. It is not just about the calories. I believe that it is also WHAT you eat. Also the exercise is an issue. I hate the treadmill, but I cannot walk outside because it is way too hot. I say I will get up in the morning and exercise, but this does not happen, so then I say I will exercise when I get home. Well, guess what, that does not happen either.
Well, this stops TODAY. I officially recommit to my fitness and my health. I am going to do a kickstart plan. I am going to lower my calories for 5 days to see if it will kickstart my weight loss again. I am currently eating about 1700 calories a day. I will drop this to about 1300 - 1400 (this is the level that I started on with Nutrisystem). I may not exercise (at least in that first 5 days), but I will walk more everyday. I will walk in place at lunch/breaks. I will pay more attention to my feelings and eating. I WILL NOT HAVE ALL YOU CAN EAT SUSHI!!!!
After the 5 days of my kickstart. I will reevaluate my calorie goal and I will start exercising regularly. I have workout videos, I have the dreaded treadmill and I have the elliptical. I may even check out the gym that is close by. It is 24 hours and has an indoor walking track, workout machines, circuit training and pool and sauna (I think).
I am hoping that my recommitment will also inspire my hubby to recommit also, he is frustrated also. We need to do this together.
Wish me luck and I will keep you updated.
