This first week of the 90 day makeover will definitely be a period of transition. I don’t plan to be as hard on myself during this first week. Here is the plan for this week:
- Continue to brainstorm healthy foods to replace our current favorite snacks
- Work on planning ahead for meals so they aren’t a surprise when we get home (“OMG, I still need to make dinner!” Sound familiar?)
- Figure out what exercises will work best for our lifestyles
- Get in the habit of getting up at a decent time in the AM, rather than rushing out the door after waking up
We are working on eating up all the food we have in the apartment. Right now, it is a lot of starch items that we will be eating throughout the week: rice, noodles, pierogies, etc. I think tonight’s meal will probably be spaghetti or a chicken rice recipe I found online.
I also had an idea for exercise: walk up and down the stairs in the apartment, and sprinting through the basement garage. We’ll give that a try tonight and see how it goes.
I’m really going to look into low-impact exercises that will help me lose weight. I’ve noticed that after a run, or a walk, or a bike ride, my knees always hurt and I can feel pain where I know my fat bounces up and down. Once the weight starts to melt off, I know these pains will go away.
So far, no pop or fast food today! I’m not even tempted (thank God for coffee!)
