Today is my first day of the new diet. I am excited to be doing something good for my body, but I am concerned about my willpower and ability to resist foods I love to eat...
Yesterday I ate the way I typically would, and came out to about 2000 calories. This is my baseline. I want to cut my daily consumption by 500 calories, for sure. So 1500 daily allotted calories it is!
I downloaded a free app onto my iPhone called "MyFitnessPal," and it is awesome. I can add anything I eat, as I eat it, and it will keep track of my calories for me. It can also search for keywords and such, with a nice full database, so I don't have to remember how many calories are in certain things. I can also save meals that I eat often. This is super handy =).
I started my morning with a long walk at a MUCH faster pace than usual. Tyler and I got out and got some exercise. Granted, it wasn't MUCH, but the plan is for MWF to be power yoga days, and TThSS to be walking days. I hope I can keep up with it!
I'll update tonight with my calories for today. I plan to include my daily weigh in in EVERY post. I can only pray that I will keep up!
Also, I took my first pictures...my "before" pictures. I will post them in their own page, for those of you who feel so inclined as to witness my fatness with your own eyes! When I lose a few pounds, I'll update it again, and add more photos.
Signing off until tonight!
