Health Plan 2019

New Year, New You

I have not been able to exercise since Oct 2018 due to my back injury but I have been able to reach my weight loss goals based on diet alone. Since the holidays I am sitting around 149 lbs which is still considered overweight based on my height of 5ft 1in. So within 3 months I would like to take you on my weight loss journey of a goal weight of 130lbs. Today is the beginning of my healthy diet and workout plan. I will have weekly weigh ins, diet plans, and exercise goals. I am a meal prepper and don’t mind eating the same thing everyday. Although on Sundays me and my husband make nice extravagant meals such as steak, mushroom ravioli, and roasted brussel sprouts with all the fat and aoli needed to make a wonderful dinner. I guess you could say I have a weekly cheat meal. I also like to go grocery shopping on the weekend so I usually plan my meals in advance. I will be including recipes when needed. Please note that the meal plan is tailored for 1 person.

Weigh In: 149.4lbs
