May Daily Diary

Shelter-in-place during the Corona Virus pandemic, makes me want to eat, sit on the couch, watch movies and knit or work on craft projects, but now I can't run to the store when I have cravings for ice cream, chocolate and other non-nutritious food items, I thought it would be a good opportunity to take time for myself and lose quite a few unwanted pounds. Plus the healthier we are the more likely we are  to combat the virus.

I'll get the bathroom scales out tomorrow morning, charge up my FitBit and start tracking calorie intake with My Fitness Pal. Although not recommended by My Fitness Pal, I've found that I don't lose weight if I go over 1,200 calories so I'm going to stick close to that. Note: You can link Fit Bit with My Fitness Pal.

Disclaimer: Check with your doctor before starting any weight loss regimen - I'm simply sharing what works for me and you have to take into account any medical problems and medication you take.

So here are my goals:
  1. Stick to between 1,200 and 1,400 calories a day
  2. A minimum of 7,000 steps per day
  3. Lose 10 pounds by May 31
  4. Post progress on my blog
