Month One - Day One

Today was the first day of my weightloss and fitness challenge with myself. As things stand now, I am pumped to get started with this journey and cannot wait to feel the changes within myself start happening.

Today I stayed within my caloric intake goal of 1600 calories per day, however I only ate once which is extremely hard on one's system. Some changes need to take place in our lives however if I am going to accomplish my goals. For example, I must start eating breakfast. Cutting out unhelpful foods like soda, fast food and chips is also on my short list of hurdles I must leap to reach the big finish I have planned. I must also remember to stop eating when I am satiated, not when I feel full, so that I can stop over-eating and eventually raise my metabolism and decrease my appetite.

I did not get as much exercise in today as I wanted to. My goal is thirty minutes per day and I only managed ten but I have taken the attitude that some is better than none. I refuse to let the little things get me down. I am using this journey as a way to transform myself physical and also mentally. I am learning how to believe in myself; something I should have done a long time ago. Tomorrow is a new day!
Your support keeps me going,


  1. Hey Jess, I was just on Women's Health's website and I found this little diet quiz. It's really informative, especially #4 re: carbohydrates. Check it out!
    (Also, this magazine is great to subscribe to, it's really motivating and has great advice and recipes.)

  2. Heather,

    I love Women's Health, whenever I can I pick one up when we go shopping. I'll definitely check that quiz out, thanks!
