  • Count me in too!
    Okay, my water intake will be 80 oz. My eating plan is less than 1,400 calories. My exercise is plan is "Making the Cut" 4x per week, interval cardio one day per week, long walk one day per week, one day rest.

    This sounds fun!
  • 3rd Month of Diet
    Food:
    New options to pick from, yay! These are my daily choices.
    - 1.) 7 protein packets plus 4 oz serving of real protein.
    - 2.) 5 protein packets plus 8 oz serving of real protein.
    - 3.) 4 protein packets plus 10 oz serving of real protein.
    Daily carb allowance is 45-55 g. Daily calories are 1200 or less.
    Weight loss rate of 2 lbs/week is the desired outcome with the new diet modification. Meeting with dietitian every other week now.
    Water:
    Daily consumption of at least 1 gallon. Must also consume an additional 8 oz for every 15 minutes of exercise.
    Exercise:
    New cardio and strength regimen.
    - Tuesdays & Thursdays: Start with 1 hr of cardio. Move onto weight training and strength exercises (1 hr). Cool down with floor exercises and stretches.
    - Mon/Wed/Fri/Sat: Cardio circuit training, minimum of 1 hr. Cool down with floor exercises and stretches.
    - Sunday: Planned rest day. Can't be a couch potato, must at least walk dogs or something else that keeps me active.
    - Optional Saturday: If I feel up to it, I can also do weight and strength training on Saturday. This may be tough since I donate platelets on Saturdays.

    1: 4 - Decided to workout even though it was Sunday (planned day off).
    2: 2 - As an experiment, I had a slice of leftover pie from my mom's birthday party. Blood glucose only shot up 5 points from 88 (before meal) to 93 (2 hrs after meal). This was the first time I had any kind of sweets or dessert since starting my diet. Also the first time I ever had a pumpkin mousse pie, very tasty.
    3: 4

  • Food: Stay BINGE-FREE!! (I know this is not exactly a calorie amount, but if I don't binge I know I stay under 2000 calories.)
    Water: Enough to stay comfortably hydrated (I am often THIRSTY but don't do anything about it, or drink bad-for-me stuff instead!).
    Exercise: One exercise video a day (they last 30-60 minutes each).
