My motivations for this week are God, my family and friends encouraging me, and a special little encouragement from my baby girl, Lydia. She brought me a note on a hello kitty paper that Memaw wrote as she dictated it. This is what it said:
to Biggest Loser!
You can get your hair fixed.
To get your hair fixed
you have to go the room
with the door with the castle on it, Eva
She said I could turn it in whenever I was ready! I told her Makeover week is usually week 12 or so! :)
Goal: Average of 1,100 calories per day
Tuesday = 1503
Wednesday = 1161
Average per day = 1,401
I feel better about this after I read an article on finding your Active Metabolic Rate. An average of 1300 calories per day should result in 2lbs. lost a week, at least. I am happy with this for this week. I am setting my goal for next week at 1300 and want to be more consistent.
I also did better with exercising this week. I am able to walk longer and faster and I even biked 5 miles one day when I had already walked 2mi. This is what I was hoping to do after I got my cast off! I am so thankful that God has helped me to heal and get better day.
So I was very pleased when I lost 3 pounds this week!
Goals for Week 3:
Drink more water and measure it for an average of 40 oz. per day.
Walk 2.5mi each day and bike 5 mi on 2 of the 4 days.
Go to bed by 11PM each night.
