I weighed in this morning at 160 lbs even. I don't want to weigh 160 lbs. I'd like to get back to my 140 lb self. Here's how I'm starting:


~ Green monster smoothie: 1/2 banana, 1C unsweetened chocolate almond breeze, 2 scoops whey protein powder, 1.5C spinach
~ 3 cups coffee

309 calories, 30 g carbs, 7 g fat, 35 g protein


~ 1.5 C chili

330 calories, 32 g carbs, 10 g fat, 28 g protein


~ sausage on a bun, 1/2 Dole harvest salad kit

578 calories, 43 g carbs, 35 g fat, 23 g protein


~ Cheese bun w butter
~ 1/2 Powerbar
~ 1 oz Potato Chips
~ Slice of brown bread w butter

564 calories, 83 g carbs, 23 g fat, 10g protein


~ Strength Training
~ Jogging 10 mins
~ Cycling 85 mins

Daily Totals:

1784 calories (my range is 1200-1550 per day)
188 g carbohydrates (my range is 163-236 per day)
74 g fat (my range is 32-56 per day)
100 g protein (my range is 60-127 per day)
26 g fibre (my range is 25-35 per day)

703 calories burned

* This should give me a calorie deficit of approximately 650 calories.

Tara, I happened upon your blog some time ago and share the same weight concerns. In fact, we weigh exactly the same and I also have a goal weight of 140.

How do you do all the calculations for your food intake, etc.?

Keep up the great work - motivation is half the battle!!!

Tara - nice to see you blogging again - WTG on the tracking - head down and focus, you know the drill.

Just hope you don't stress too much about things as you big day approaches......

Your plan is awesome. I like the recipe for the smoothie :) And guess what? You posted this at 11:11. So your wish MUST come true.
You got this!
