My path to weightloss and better health officially started today. A couple of more details from a past thread that I recently posted: FOOD Breakfast 2 pieces of Honey Wheat Berry Bread 1 banana 1 slice of cheese (*Note this is not included in the Total for Today at the bottom in italics and bold as I couldn't find any nutritional info on it. It's some cheese that my mom bought me that they slice at the deli.) Lunch/Brunch 1 piece of Honey Wheat Berry Bread 1 can of tuna Snack 1 serving of Honey Wheat Pretzels 7 Conversation Hearts candy ( I know ) Dinner Green Beans (not sure how much) 1 slice of White Mountain Bread (I know, carbs! I'm working on it.) 1 slice of cheese 3 Slices of Ham some generic brand of canned mushrooms Fruit Salad (2 apricots, 1 apple, 2 peach slices) Snack 3/4 cup of cereal (some that doesn't have a lot of sugar) Total today: Calories/Fat/Carbs/Protein - Please note this is not totally counted today, only up to before dinner as it is late and I am tired. 769/9/140/57 EXERCISE I easily get bored with exercise. So, I had been reading through the forums and saw a few people had tried jump roping...5 sets of 3 mins. each with 1 min. rest in between. Well, my intentions were good, but my body didn't want to cooperate. I am so out of shape that all I could manage was 1 min. jumping and 1 min. rest (I did other taebo moves during this time.) for about 4 total mins. of jumping. My throat was hurting by the end from breathing in cold air, even though I tried breathing through my nose. It's funky because I can usually stand aerobics/taebo for 30 mins. I'm tired after it, but not like this. I plan to do some other type of cardio tonight and begin following the regimen outlined here: http://www.ruggedmag.com/index.php?type=Article&i=15&a=12 I still haven't gotten a treadmill, but I plan to eventually. Will keep everything up to date on my progress. Thanks for reading Edit: Since it was so late when I ate dinner, I didn't do much more exercise, except for cleaning for about 30 mins. That must count toward some kind o calorie burning, eh? As far as what I have ate tonight, I have added it above.
