Cassie, I'm with you. I want to start my week on plan today, even though it's a holiday. No cookouts or BBQs to tempt me--counting my blessings on that.
I have many friends and relatives in the military--past and present. Among the many, my Uncle Pat was killed in the Korean war, leaving a wife and three young sons ages about 3 to 8. My father served in WWII, his father in WWI, and DH in peace time on a missile base in Alaska.
For our non-USA members, on Memorial Day (last Monday in May) we honor all who served in the military, especially those who gave their lives to keep us free.
My scale started to move nicely. I'm down another half pound from yesterday. What got it moving again last week was bumping up the intensity of my exercise and bumping my protein back up from a target of 100g per day to 120g.
Goals this week:
Calorie limit 1500
Saturated fat average 10% of total calories
Dietary cholesterol average 250mg
Net carbs (carbs less fiber) 25g
Fiber average 25g
Protein minimum 120g
Exercise 5 days a week
Water 64. oz.
Age 67, 5 feet tall
Highest weight ever 246 lbs. in the fall of 2010
FitDay starting weight 1/17/11 240 lbs.
Note: doctor's scale 4 lbs. lighter than my home scale. I go by my home scale weight
Weight 9/11/2013 234
