Day 1 of Phase I (detox)

Posted by: sgregg In: Getting healthy

Good morning!
I am excited about getting this detox started.  I ate breakfast later than I wanted, but I didn’t get a chance to get it sooner.  I had 1/2 cup of oatmeal made with 1 cup of skim milk.  I sliced some strawberries and bananas on top and also added blueberries.  It was tasty.  I [...]

Wednesday Weigh-In!

Posted by: sgregg In: Weekly Weigh-Ins

Bleh!
I’m at 219.4.  I know why though.  I haven’t been staying accountable, and I haven’t been tracking my dinners most days.  I know I’m going over, so I don’t even bother.  However, today is a new day and so far, so good.  I’ve already entered my dinner recipe on livestrong.com and I’ve entered my snack [...]

Well, I’m finally getting back into my weigh-ins.  Today, I weighed in at 218.  That’s 16.6 lbs down since the beginning of August 2011.  I don’t think that’s too bad considering I stalled for 3 months.  I’m just glad I pretty much maintained during those months.  The stress of school can do so much to [...]

January Goals

Posted by: sgregg In: Monthly Goals

So, I thought I should make some goals for myself for this month.  I’ve decided to take things a little slower this time around.  I’ve set my calorie counter to where I will lose 1 lb. per week instead of 2.  That puts me at about 1800 calories per day instead of 1400 to lose [...]

It’s a new year and everyone is starting their resolutions.  Why do people think they should start at the beginning of a new year.  Today is just like any other day, right?  So, with that being said, I’m not making any resolutions.  I should just continue with my lifestyle change.  I’ve been dealing with my [...]
