new plan

An update to the orginal plan.

Daily
  • calorie count! - weigh and write down what I eat
  • aim to eat 1500 - 1750 calories per day
  • drink at least 1 litre of water a day
  • eat no crisps
  • drink no sugary fizzy drinks
  • think before eating - am I really hungry? what will this food do for me?
  • eat at least 3 pieces of fruit a day (together with the veggies I usually get at meal times, that will put me on target for 'Five a Day')
  • remember to suck my tummy in as much as possible!

Weekly
  • exercise for at least 30 minutes, 5 days out of 7, normally to include:
    • 1 aquarobics session
    • 1 belly dance class
    • 1 swim
    • do my belly dance video once a week
    • walk for 30 mins, at least 3 days a week
    • go by bike (instead of car/bus) whenever practical
  • do something active with O every weekend (eg bike ride, walk, go swimming)
  • weigh myself once a week only, on Monday mornings

Monthly
  • lose 1 lb a week on average (the 'pound a week' club)
  • set a monthly challenge (starting November)
