Here's the plan:
Goal: I want to lose 40 lbs in the next four months. This gives me until the end of August 2009. My husband and I are planning a trip to Vegas, so that will be my reward. Well, that and a smaller, healthier body!
This means I must lose 10 lbs every month, or 2.5 lbs per week (yeah, you math geniuses already figured that one out).
Workouts: I plan on starting out with 20 mins of riding my bike every day (with light hand weights for upper body), and adding step aerobics and weight training as I go. I hope to increase my bike to 30 mins/day.
Food: I plan to decrease my portion sizes and reduce/eliminate any snacking. I will try to not eat after 7 pm. I want to eat more whole grains and fruits and vegetables as well.
Motivation: My husband is 100% supportive and plans on working out with me as much as possible. This blog is going to be my BIG motivator. I am sharing with you my goals, and plans, and will post daily to update my progress and feelings about my weight loss.
I am going to try my best to stick to this plan and meet my goal.
Wish me luck!
