So today was a pretty good day. I stayed roughly to the diet plan going over a little on breakfast and treating myself to a Mike's Hard Lemonade while hanging with my friend. But according to My Fitness Pal which is a fabulous resource recommended to me by my cousin Katrina ( It's where I get my calorie counter as well as weigh myself in to track my progress) , in order to lose a pound a week I can have 1830 calories a day. I'm sticking to my original goal of 1500 a day, but if I go slightly over, as long as I'm under this I won't feel too guilty. My awesome boyfriend cooked a calorie-counter friendly Pasta Primavera with pork for dinner and it was sinfully delicious. I'm so glad I have him, he's making this really easy.
Took advantage of the hot tub this weekend to soothe my aching muscles and took a day off from exercising. I don't want to do too much too fast. But tomorrow I'll make my way down to my apartment complex's fitness center and workout for an hour. Every other day seems like a good plan, except Sundays and Mondays which will fall right in a row.
I'm doing pretty good so far. I don't feel much different, except more tired, but I know that over time I will begin to notice changes in my health. Tomorrow I buy a scale and actually read the awful numbers that will be my jumping off point, as well as buy a pedometer. Bought a kitchen scale for more accuracy during cooking too!
