My husband was going to start me on september 26th for my second half of my weight loss program, but he decided that my energy and positive desire to exercise more should not be wasted. My morale is high, and so i am heavily motivated to move on. He felt the data gathered matched his theory regarding how the body systems worked, and i did indeed only fluctuate between +/- 2 pounds during the 20 days i was on phase v.

So, i am now moving forward with a new exercise and diet program. My new plan goal is 40 more pounds to lose. As per the previous thread, i lost 45 pounds from april 25th to august 31st. This plan will run from september 20th to march 30th, 2015.

The foods and calorie intake are similar to the first plan, but this second plan includes lean muscle building exercises to be slowly added in over time.

Here is how it works:

Phase i Ė goal: 10 pounds over 30 days

non-exercise days
drink (qty: 8) 20.0 oz mio flavored water bottles per day with no more than 1 bottle every 2 hours. We live in colorado.

Exercise days
drink (qty: 10) 20.0 oz mio flavored water bottles per day with no more than 1 bottle every 2 hours. We live in colorado.

Restricted diet to 1500-1600 calories

exercises are as follows:
Mon, wed, fri, sat
25 minutes of walking (approx 2.0 - 2.5 mph)
5 minutes of slow breathing
5 minutes of kegel stretches
5 minutes of chair squats
5 minutes of pelvic drops

exercise days
after exercising in the morning:
+ one 20.0 oz bottle of flavored water
+ 1.5 cups of watermelon

breakfast
1.33 servings of dannon light & fit strawberry yogurt
1.5 cups of watermelon
2 large hard-boiled eggs (whites only)
one 20.0 oz bottle of flavored water

i also take a woman's silver one-a-day vitamin and i take a daily 600mg calcium supplement.

2 hours after breakfast
one 20.0 oz bottle of flavored water

lunch
progresso light soup chicken noodle (or similar) - 1/2 can
1 large hard-boiled eggs (whites)
one 20.0 oz bottle of flavored water

2 hours after lunch
one 20.0 oz bottle of flavored water

exercising in the evening:
+ one 20.0 oz bottle of flavored water
+ 1.5 cups of watermelon

dinner
approximately 850-900 calories, but my choice of variety. I usually have:
2 servings - boneless, skinless chicken breast w/ lemon juice - 4 oz each
or
2 servings - tilapia - two fish w/ lemon juice
also:
2 servings of baked potatoes with cheddar cheese
2 servings of steamed brussels sprouts or broccoli
1 large hard-boiled eggs (whites)
one 20.0 oz bottle of flavored water

dessert
blue bell fruit bar, strawberry (70 calories)

2 hours after dinner
one 20.0 oz bottle of flavored water

non-exercise days reduce the food servings for dinner to 1 each.
Additionally, non-exercise days do not include the watermelon and extra 2 bottles of water.
-----------
my husband had his ankle surgery and is almost fully recovered after 8 weeks, despite having his brace removed 10 days ago. He was supposed to have a richie brace and go through 4 months of physical therapy, but he is healing so quickly that he will not be using the richie brace at all (won't receive it for another 2 weeks or so anyway). He is using a treadmill under doctor observation and started walking with me today on my plan and he did very well! My husband has started a similar diet to me, but being hypoglycemic, he has to worry about his blood sugar more, so he has less carbs in his diet. He is also transitioning caffeine out of his system.

That's about it for now. I will update here as i progress.

See you next time!


congratulations on your weight loss and thank you for5 inspiring and motivating us to do mor excercise!!!! <3
