Today is a day for reflection as it is the end of the month. I had 3 goals with one bonus goal.
Eliminate soda by 9/10 and drink 2 quarts of water each day – completed
Exercise 10 times – completed
Food Journal Daily – completed
Lose 5% of my starting body weight completed. I weighed in this morning at 219 lbs even – completed. (Total weight loss of 12.2 lbs)
So now to decide my goals for October
Continuing goals from September
2 qts of water daily
Exercise 10 times
With us going to Vegas I am struggling with making attainable goals for the whole month, but here is what I am striving for:
Exercise up it to 45 minutes per session
Take at least 1 aerobics class at the rec center
Try to consume less than 1500 calories a day after Vegas.
Bonus goal reach 10% total loss (208.1lbs)
Originally I had planned to up the number of workouts but chances are I will not work out while on vacation so that’s 8 days. I am going to food journal and try to make wise decisions, but its vacation and all are meals will be out. My goal is to not gain more than 4 lbs during that week. (came up with that number at half a pound a day) I will weigh myself before we leave on Saturday and then when we get back home on Sunday.
Here is my last journal entry for September.

* I hate how deceptive Chinese food is I felt like I didn’t eat anything for dinner tonight and the calories added up quickly. (Volumetrics) I ordered vegetable chow mien from one of our favorite Chinese restaurants here; (I really like it from Panda Express) however it was not good from Blue Bay. The noodles were extremely crunchy so I ended up not eating them. I did eat about 1/2 cup of the vegetables. But almost no rice and only 5 small pieces of chicken. I hate this fact because I LOVE Chinese food.
Thank you all for the encouraging words this month and I hope you will stick with me for the month of October.
