I mentioned a few posts back that I spent the beginning of 2011 quite sick and in the hospital. For most people that would be a perfect recipe for weight loss, but as a PSP with Polycycstic Ovarian Syndrome, spending 10 days in bed right after the holidays meant a ridiculous amount of weight gain for me.
Unfortunately, if I’m not constantly working to lose weight with exercise, I will pack on the pounds with no effort at all. So, I started 2011 at my highest weight in a long time but I also started with a new found desire to get back on track.
My New Years Resolution before I got sick was to lose 10 pounds in January, February and March and then to reassess my fitness goals and lose some more. But I wasn’t physically able to step foot into a gym until mid-January so I knew I had to just do my best. I changed my eating habits by eating fruits and veggies with every single meal.
- A banana in my oatmeal
- Green Beans with my lunch
- An apple with my afternoon popcorn
- Fresh pineapple slices while I cooked dinner
I found that doing this filled me up a lot and helped me to make better choices throughout the day. I combined that with 30 minutes of cardio, 3-4 times a week and in the last two weeks of January, I’ve lost 9.2 pounds!
Not too far off from my goal, now lets see if I can get 100% back on track for February. Maybe this time next year I’ll be shopping for new JDWilliams Womens Coats…
How’s everyone else doing?
