Today is day three of logging everything on The Daily Plate. I've done a pretty good job of logging everything, and even though I'm consuming under the recommended value in order for me to lose 2 pounds a week, I feel that I may be taking in too much. They suggest I take in about 2700 calories a day to lose weight. I don't know how I feel about that. Am I really burning over 2700 calories a day? Anyway, this month is about logging everything and seeing how it impacts my weight.
I just got back from the grocery store and I realized that I've been shopping way healthier. I'm just about immune to the impulse items. I used to grocery shop entirely on impulse. I've come a long way. I looked at the nutritional information on just about everything I bought.
After I put up my shirtless pictures, I realized how much thinner I had gotten. That alone is a huge motivator. Even though I only lost 1.8 pounds in February, I definitely ended the month looking better than I did at the beginning of the month. I've also heard a lot of people talking about taking measurements instead of weight. I'd do that, but my goal is 100 pounds not x inches.
That's all for now. I'm probably not going to get my 7 hours of sleep minimum tonight so I'd better get off the computer box.
