Jaleesa's Weight Loss Challenge to lose 45lbs

Day 1

Day 1...

Current weight: 178lbs
Desired weight: 133lbs - 135lbs
Current Sizes: 10 - 12
Desired Sizes: 5 - 7
Main Areas of improvement: Arms, Stomach and Stability
 
Personally, having people know my weight really scares me, this is really hard for me. However, this is a motivation for me to see a change in myself. I could give you all the excuses in the world of why I gained all this weight and blame it on others. But I am not. I am just going to do something about it. 

Meals:
Breakfast - yogurt with berries and oatmeal

Fresh Berries
Lunch - pasta with chicken, zucchini, red peppers and red onion (it was white pasta, whole wheat is better) 

Snack - apple and berries
Coffee, lots of water and cranberry juice

Dinner - Spinach salad with red onion, yellow and red peppers, tomato and flex seeds, dressed with oil and a teaspoon of salad dressing (next time just oil and apple cider vinegar)    

I would have to say that my meal choices today was a 6 out of 10. It will take me awhile to make a strong meal plan that works for me in taste and portions. I love food but good food can be healthy too!

Workout:
40 mins of Cardio (30 mins on the treadmill and 10 mins bike)
30 mins on Weights focusing on arms ( sets of consist of 8 reps of 30 - 40lbs)

Workout today was really good, burned 350 calories on the treadmill and bike. I am a little sore but I will get use to it. 

So every Monday keep posted for new results in loss weight. And come back tomorrow to know how day 2 went!

Signing out....
