The Journey Begins
So, January has begun and I am in the zone to get fit, healthy and lose some weight. I took all my starter measurements on the 1st January and have now finished my bullet journal weight loss set up for my campaign. I bought a couple of stencils last year from Oops a Daisy and used them for my first pages. All I need to do now is fill in my details.
The next page I made is for all the stats my scales give me. Along with weight they tell me muscle, water and body fat% as well as my BMI. I’m going to log these every fortnight and have made a note of the healthy ranges for the different stats and my personal goals. I’m going to continue with my water and step trackers that I started in December. I didn’t manage to reach my target every day last month. However, it made me more aware of increasing my steps and I have managed to regularly consume around 6 glasses of water each day. That’s definitely an improvement.
I’ve also made a table to log my measurements each fortnight. I know there will be weeks when my weight loss might not be that great. Hopefully this will be due to me increasing my muscle mass when I get exercising more. If my waistline is still heading in the right direction then logging these measurements should stop me getting too disheartened if the scales don’t change.
Weight Loss Graph
My last page for now is my Weight Loss Graph. Here,I’m hoping for an encouraging visual graph showing my weight, waist and body fat heading in the right direction each week. I’ve drawn a pencil line showing my desired weight loss of 1.5lb a week. Let’s see if I can keep under that line.
That’s me all set up and ready to shift those pounds. For January I’m keeping things quite simple. I’m logging my food on Myfitnesspal which also links up to my Fitbit and am trying to stick to 1200-1400 calories a day. I’m also trying to regularly walk 7000+ steps a day, drink 6 glasses of water, and am hoping to start a gentle Yoga programme next week. And that’s it for January. I’m not going to set my self a load of goals that I’m going to struggle with and then give up like I have in the past. I’m looking at changing my lifestyle gradually and making healthier choices and habits to last long-term.
