Wednesday Weigh-In

I'm sure everyone has started thinking about their New Year's resolutions.  This year I am really going to try to get healthy again.  I have a plan, more on that later.  The same one I used a couple years ago.  I just need to get in gear.  So to help me kick off my plan I am going to start "Wednesday Weigh-In".  I will weigh-in each week with my progress or lack there of.  I also hope to encourage others to do the same.  I feel like if I have a group that will hold me accountable I will do better.  I think it would be great if we could share recipes and excerise techniques. 

My Plan
  • 30 minutes of Intense Cardio at least 5 x week.
  • Count Calories I will try to stay at 1,500 each day.
  • Increase Fruits and Veggies
  • Reduce soft drink intake, drink more water.
I think I am going to gradually go into the program.  I think I'll start by eliminating soft drinks and caffeine.  The next week all add more fruits and veggies and start counting calories.  Finally I'll add the cardio.  That may not come until closer to spring.  It will be easier to run if I lose some weight first. 

This is basicly what I did about two years ago and the weight pretty much feel off.  I also ate most of my calories at breakfast and lunch and had a small dinner.  I didn't eat anything after about 6:00.  I know it is going to be more difficult this time around simply because I not only have to worry about feeding myself but my husband too.  When I used this plan before I was in college and was getting a lot of exercise just walking on campus so I think it will take a lot longer to drop it this time. (I dropped 30lbs in 2 months last time!)  I just want to feel better.  When I eat right and exercise it makes me feel better, like a lot better so that is what I'm ultimately after the slimmer waist will just be an added perk.
I plan to post my starting weight and before picture Friday January 1.  I'll then update every Wednesday.  If anyone wants to join my journey just leave a link in the comments.  Maybe we can be a little support group.  I know I would love that!
