Well I'm a little earlier than usual today. Waiting to make the run to town. I haven't worked out yet. And I didn't work out yesterday. And guess what? Yep. I don't really want to work out today either. I know, I know. It's an important part of my weight loss program. It's just that some days I just don't feel like it. So pray for me. I need to get on that treadmill. Once I do I will be glad I did, it's just getting it started. Ugh!
My meal plan has taken a pretty good turn. I met with a nutrition advisor at Let's Shake. She said my weight is slow coming off because I don't eat enough. That's funny, isn't it??? Because I only eat between 900 and 1100 calories on average each day, I guess my body thinks it's starving. Yep. That's me. Ethiopia mama. Starving. Hahaha. And the reading on the right proves it.
I don't know how well you can see it, but this reading shows how many calories I burn while resting, my fat/muscle composition -- coool stuff! And it shows how many calories I have to eat if I want to LOOOOOOSE! It's hard to read. So click on the image itself and you can see it more clearly in a new window. Check out my BMR (basil metabolic rate). WOW! You'd think it was much lower! It's all interesting though.
So yesterday I started trying to eat more. Healthier, but more. Less bread (waaaaaaaa!), more veggies, fruit and protein. And it's almost 90 g of protein. I'm looking at 1375 calories a day instead of 1100. And then yes, it will come off. But again, this is all a watching game. We shall see.
I'm off to get me a protein shake and a fat burning herbal tea. The fam gets ham and scalloped potatoes for dinner. I'm thinking chicken and asparagas for me. Maybe some fat free swiss melted over the top. Mmmmm!
God bless you all today. May He bless you with something sweet and unexpected. I always say that if Jesus gave out treats they'd be lemon drops. Sweet and sour mixed together!
