Going to be Successful in May

So far, this has been a great week for me!

I made it a goal for May to do three things:

Weekly Photo Weigh-ins
Post Calories in/Calories out 5/7 days a week
Eat out no more than Once per week

Last night was my first (and will be my only) time eating out this week. I have been tracking my calories since Monday, and I started off on Sunday with my first photo weigh-in. My May Challenge is going to be super successful!

Spotted these beauties during my walk last night.

Last night, I went for a quick walk with my dogs. It was only about 10 minutes long, and then I took them back home. I wanted to run a bit and since it's so hard to run with both of them, I decided to run alone.

After dropping my dogs off at home, I went for a run/walk. I ran for about a half mile, then walked the rest of the way. I ended up walking to my moms house. It was such a beautiful day, I just couldn't resist the walk. I didn't have any music with me, just the music of nature. I snapped a picture of my Garmin once I arrived at my moms house, then went inside for our Wednesday Bible Study.

This is the third week in a row that I have done Bible Study with my mom and step-father. I have really enjoyed it. Before attending Bible Study with my parents, I felt like something was missing in my life. I'm positive that I found what I've been missing. It really helps bring life back into perspective for me.

Since I didn't get home until about 8:00 p.m. and by then I was starving for something to eat for dinner, I ordered out. I ordered a sub, it was done within 10 minutes and gone in even less time. I calculated the calories as best as I could and came up with the following total for the day.

Calories in: 2,035 - Calories out: 425 = 1,610 total calories for Wednesday.

Do you count calories? Does it seem to work for you? If not, what does work for you?

  1. I do count my calories, on MFP. I've been focusing on trying to eat more protein though, as I've been getting hungry in the evenings and I want to curb that. :)
