So I started a new plan, and here is what I'm not doing:
- Drinking soda
- Eating Frosty's from Wendy's
- Eating Fast Food
What Am I Doing?
- Eating Vegetables
- Eating Fruit
- Drinking 80 oz of water.
So am avoiding salad dressing unless its fat free and low in sodium. If I really need some soda, I can drink clear stuff like Sprite.
Get a New Plan Stan
I knew I was going out of town, so what did I do? I bought a cooler and some ice packs and took food with me. When I ran out of healthy food I was really surprised that I was able to go into a Burger King and get a salad (and I had my fat free dressing in the cooler).
I have a list of things I can eat and instead of obsessing over things I CAN'T EAT, I'm looking at how to make a plan I can live with, use, and continue with this plan.
Is It Working?
I'm down 5 lbs . I'm losing 2+ lbs a week. I'm happy.
New Tools To Track Progress
I found fitstream.com which is a free app that I can use to track my measurements and take pictures. The app helps you measure your body (cause the scale isn't always accurate and you can lost inches without losing weight).
One tool I'm trying is called i Record Weight – Track Weight and Monitor Body Metrics . It was ok, but it seemed like Fitstream – Fitness Journal, Progress Pictures & Body Measurement Tracker had a shorter learning curve (and it's free).
