My name is Ana and I am 35 years old and I am starting SBD Phase 1 today. I know it is a crazy time to start a diet but i think it will be okay, because now i will be more cautious when eating the "holiday food". I didn't want that to be the reason for not starting a better woe. I started exercising at the beginning of the month and I think i am now ready to measure each and every bite and be accountable. I will keep this journal update as much as I can, i know coming here and reading others messages is a big motivation for me, so i think i will be here a lot. I will post for sure once a week, the weigh-in day. Thursday will be my weigh in day.
I have done SBD in past, so I know the basics of it but if you see anything that i am doing wrong, please correct me
I will be using the recipe's here for getting all the requirements in.
As for the goals, the first one is to stick to the following plan for eating and exercise:Diet
Breakfast: Protein + 1/2 cup vegetables + 1/2 cup milk + 1 tsp olive oil
Snack: Protein + Veggie
Lunch: 3 oz protein + 2 cup vegetables (including beans)
Snack: FF yogurt + nuts + 1/2 cup milk
Dinner: 3 oz protein + 2 cup vegetables (including beans)Exercise
Burn at least 500 calories on Elliptical
In terms of numbers: I am 223 today morning and first goal is to be under 200, that will put me in Overweight
category and out of Obese
So far today, I had a good breakfast - 2 eggs with spinach and coffee with milk.
So, here I go, one day at a time, hoping to make a change
