The Plan

So how in the WORLD am I going to lose this weight? Dan (my not ugly at all Personal Trainer) says there is only one scientific way to lose weight: Burn more calories than you consume. Ha. Easier said the done, Dan.

For now, he has put me on a Calorie Budget, and a cardio routine. Unfortunately, I think the calorie budget is here to stay, but the cardio is only going to get worse.

Heres a peek at my CB:

Breakfast: 200 Calories
Snack: 200 cals
Lunch: 400 cals
Snack: 200 cals
Snack: 200 cals
Dinner: 800 cals
Snack: 200 cals

All for a grand total of 2,000 calories. This sounds like a lot--but according to the sound of my stomach, it's nothing. Let me put this into perspective for you: If you go to Olive garden, have 2 breadsticks, some salad, and Fettuccine Alfredo, you've racked up almost 1,900 calories. JUST ON ONE MEAL. That sucks-I love Fettuccine Alfredo.

Back to the plan--

For now, I will be meeting with Dan twice a week at the gym, and he'll give me a workout to do every day. Every freaking day. Have I mentioned that I hate working out? But I've gotten all of my essentials! New shoes, new clothes, new waterbottle, step counter, headphones, ipod arm band (sorry, but I like spending money)

So far so good..I've done some form of working out for at least 25 min every day for the past 5 days. They say it takes 21 days for form a habit...I'm getting there.

So. That's the plan! What do you think?

Side note, I'm in Milwaukee babysitting my little brother right now, and he's making cheese sausage links right in front of me. My mouth is watering. But at 340 cals per link, it's sooo not worth it...right?

  1. I'm so happy you're going to learn to love working out! You know we'll all love you no matter what you ever look like, but you go Trel.
