ok i am going to give this a try.. i am getting married this month so i am going to get in as much as i can and set a realistic goal for me instead of something i know i cant achieve.

I want to walk 90miles this month and lose 7 pounds..

If someone could be so kind as to let me know how i can put the tracker into my profile instead of always having to copy and paste it i would appreciate that.
HERE I GO!!!!!

Im so excited its May!!! That means its finally getting warm here in Buffalo!
Goals-
1) 90 Minutes of exercise daily. I know this seems like alot, but my body is in "baby making mode" as my doctor says, and even though I have no intention of getting pregnant, my body is holding onto every calorie I eat. I gain weight if I eat 1200cals a day and exercise for an hour. I know it seems like it makes no sense, but trust me- its awful. Until my metabolism picks back up, 90 minutes seems to be the only way to get my weight to creep down, even just a little bit!
2) Five days a week of split weight training with my trainer.
3) Keeping up with the challenge
Start Weight:137.8
Current Weight:134.5
Goal Weight:127.8

10 This week sucked. I was so down. I didnt get anything accomplished, especially this weekend.

Since I achieved my exercise goal for last month, I'm going to raise it by 100 minutes this month. So, I'm going for 500 minutes of exercise. If possible, I'd like to be active, whether it's hard exercise or not, for 15 or 20 minutes a day. I find that recording it every day here helps hold me accountable, which is really helpful!

I would love to lose 5 pounds, since I've been holding steady for a month. Stupid plateau.

I'm going to aim for an average of below 1700 calories per day, which I'll calculate on a weekly basis. That way I don't freak out if I go over a bit. I'm also going to try to eat less bread (good luck . . .). Good, homemade bread is my major weakness.


Starting Weight: 195

Week 1:
1 - 1473 calories, 20 minutes of walk-jogging
2 - 1475 calories, 20 minutes brisk walking
3 - 1860 calories
4 - 1837 calories

Weight: 195 *sigh*
Average Calories: 1622 calories

Week 2:
5 - 1715 calories (let's just that that my BF sent me chocolate . . .)
6 - 1807 calories (bad bad bad . . . I ate ice cream . . . must crack down)
7 - 35 minutes DDR, 15 minutes walk/jogging
8 - 1815 calories
9 - 2016 calories, 30 minutes of DDR (Teacher Appreciation Week is killing me - so much good food from my students' parents!)
10 - 1441 calories (much better), and 30 minutes of DDR
11 - 1531 calories

Weight: 192 pounds
Average Calories: 1721 calories (close!)

Week 3:
12 - 1423 calories (haven't found the time to exercise even though I really want to! usually it's the other way around . . .)
13 - 30 minutes of DDR, 2065 calories (we had a special Moroccan guest chef at dinner and it was amazing)
14 - 50 minutes DDR (I was dripping sweat by the end), 2496 calories (this is bad)
15 - 60 minutes DDR, 1868 calories (better . . . ish . . .)
16 - 1701 calories, 15 minutes light DDR
17 - 35 minutes intense DDR, 1146 calories
18 - 1302 calories, gentle walking, 30 minutes

Weight: 191!!!
Average Calories: 1714

Week 4:
19 - 1504 calories, no exercise (hectic day)
