This is my first post in the blog-a-long- Paving a new path.
My Goal: Get to healthier weight by eating better and getting more active.
Project start: April 11, 2013
Weight at start of project: 210 lbs
Goal weight 160lbs.
Current weight: 207lbs.
And this really is something that's easy to change. It just takes a little forethought. So two weeks ago, I went to the grocery store and stocked up on salad supplies (read - lettuce - I don't really do other vegetables). One of my coworkers (the shrug recipient) has just gone through a dramatic, successful weight loss - her thing is lots of protien. And that's great for me - I love meats and cheeses and fortunately - chicken is one of my favourites.
So, the Sunday before my first week of tackling this goal, I roasted up some extra chicken with dinner, and put it away for lunch. A little chicken, a little shredded cheddar, a little light Italian - and you know - that salad wasn't half bad. So I did it again. And again!
I'd love to say that I took my lunch every day for the last two weeks.... but hey.... at least 60% of the the time isn't too bad for a start right? AND!!!- I'm already down three pounds.
My immediate goal is to get my healthy lunches up to 80% of the time (4 days a week). I'll let you know at the end of May how that's going.
Another coworker has also committed to start walking on at least three lunches a week with me - so come Tuesday, I'll be adding a little activity into my day as well.
So, I'm starting out with small steps - but every one is telling me that will help make them lasting steps.
