Below are my goals for July.
At least 6 days/week for at least an hour each time
1620 minutes for the month
Burn at least 3000 calories/week (measured by pedometer and HRM, not SP)
Eat within my calorie range 90% of the time
No more than 2 beers on any day that I drink beer
Drink all of my water every day
Recommit to this journey
And here's how I'm doing so far:
Exercise - worked out 6 days - Goal 1 check
Total of 535 minutes so I'm on track to reach 1620 in 4 weeks - Goal 2 check I walked a total of 29 miles this week and based on what I've recently read, walking burns .53*your weight/mile, so my heftiness is causing me to burn 125 calories/mile, which is 3627 calories this week, Spark calls it 3965 so they're relatively close, but more importantly are both over 3000 calories. - Goal 3 check
Water - Check
Calories - I was short by 60 calories on one day. So I'm calling it good for the week.
Beer - Only had beer once this week and only had two. - Check
I've sparked every day. I've tracked every day. And I've been slightly obsessed with eating, tracking, and exercising. And in the long run I'm going to have to find some balance, but for the first week recommitting to getting healthy I'm not going to worry because I probably need that.
Results - Lost 4 lbs! Yes, I know you're not supposed to lose more than 2 lbs/week. But I generally have a difficult time losing between 1-1.5 lbs/week and at this point have over 100 lbs to lose, so I'm going to make hay while the sun shines and appreciate the 4lbs gone for as long as the accelerated loss lasts. :)
