Making my Goals

I am not one to usually set goals and not make them. Especially when I tell people about them. It is embarrassing to tell people that you are going to do something and then have them watch you fail. That is the entire reason that I set up this blog; to hold me accountable to my goals. I have been pretty good about my goals so far but wow have I messed up recently.

I have 32 days until our Labor Day trip to Idaho. I really, really want to lose 12 pounds. A pound is 3500 calories. In order to do this, I will have to have a deficit of 1400 calories per day. This should be obtainable. I have the tools to do this. I know how to do this! My bodybugg tells me exactly how many calories I burn through out the day. I should be able to eat about 1300 calories a day (staying out of starvation mode) and burn 2700 per day.

I think I need to get back to being committed to shredding it with Jillian on the days I don't make it to the gym. I can't go carb free. It is just too hard and then I fail but I can watch my carbs a lot closer and commit to eating protein at each meal. My upcoming weeks are really busy with CPR and stuff so I will have to do some planning.

More details to come...
