Posted by: Hilary In: Weight Loss Goal
My cold is almost gone!! It’s been a few days of lots of kleenex and cough drops and sudafed but now I’m on the mend.
I’ve been doing well watching my portion sizes. I have not been able to exercise though but it’s ok. I’m looking at some information about counting calories. I think I need just a little more accountability and structure than watching portion sizes. I’m glad I did this week that way though, as a start. I looked online at a few places and it looks like I need about 2500 calories a day for my weight and activity level, to lose about 2lbs a week. It says to try it for a week and see your results and then adjust by 100 calories or so to find a good fit.
I’m going to attempt:
400 cal - breakfast
700 cal - lunch
900 cal - dinner
500 cal - snacks (not to exceed 250 cals in junk snacks or 10% of my daily calories)
I will try it this way for a week, starting Tues, which is my weigh-in day. If any of you are calorie counters and have suggestions, I am open to listen! (and would appreciate the advice)
On the school front, I start class tomorrow! I’ve gone onto my Blackboard account (which is the program used for online classes) and looked around a bit. I’m taking a 7 week math class. It’s going to be a lot of work, but I’m ready for the challenge.
Hope your weekends are going GREAT!
