My weigh in this morning was 147.6 . The plan I drew up at work the other day involved me getting from 149 to 147 this week, but this isn’t bad, and so I’m going to modify the plan a bit accordingly and present it here. I’m giving myself a timeline for each weight loss increment, a timeline that I think is quite reasonable. And I really am going to try to start posting an accountability post every Friday.
Weigh Loss Goal Calendar:
8/26: 149.0 (Weigh first Friday after 25th birthday and all of that extra indulgence)
11/25: 140 (Thanksgiving, no weight loss.. no weight gain?)
12/23: 139.0 (Christmas Season/will be road tripping)
12/30: 139.0 (Christmas)
1/6: 139.0 (New Year’s)
1/13: 139.0 (Will be visiting friends in Dallas)
1/20: 139.0 (Will be road tripping)
1/27: 139.0 (ditto)
2/3: 139.0 (settling in to Seattle)
2/10: 138.8 (here is where I will start to try to lose .2/week until I like my body)
Here’s the plan for getting there.
Monday: Paleo Diet, with a built in calorie count of approximately 1700. 15 minute run as well as strength training for my chest, back, shoulders, abs and thighs
Tuesday: Paleo Diet, except that if my weigh in is less than last week’s Tuesday weigh in, I get one “cheat” meal at whichever food truck is parked in front of the BPL on my way to work that day. Other than the food truck dish, built in calorie count is about 1400, bringing the day to probably around 2000-2200 calories. 20 minutes of biking/reading as well as my biceps, triceps, calves, and hamstrings workout
Wednesday: Same as Monday
Thursday: Paleo Diet, with a built in calorie count of approximately 1700 calories, also 20 minutes of light cardio as well as Tuesday work out
Friday: If weigh in achieves goal, I can have a treat with my coffee at the coffee shop and then later in the day some kind of foodie adventure. All other meals should be Paleo-y, and I should try to stick to about 2400 calories or less. If I don’t make the weigh in, stay on the 1700 calorie diet and try to make it Saturday. Same workout as M/W.
Saturday: Unless I make the weight from a failed Friday, in which case I get Friday’s food plan, then it’s back to the 1700 plan. Same workout as T/R, except I’ll probably play tennis instead of biking/reading.
Sunday: On 1700 calorie Paleo diet. Off day gym-wise. I just bought a basketball, so I’ll probably play that.
