Today is Day 1

I am excited to begin another leg of my journey! There is hope.

I am on day three of headaches—always on the same side of my head/face. It will disappear for a brief time and then comes back. I am hoping eating nutritious foods will help with that but I am under a great deal of stress right now and I’m not sure which is the culprit, if not both.

Hubby is joining me again this time and that is a huge motivator for me.

This morning, we weighed and then I calculated how many calories each of us can eat to lost 2 lbs. per week. We are both tracking with the My Fitness Pal app—it helps to see him adding what he eats to remind me that I need to do the same.

We set some goals for Week 1.

  1. Exercise at least 3 times per week for a minimum of 30 minutes (starting out with easily obtainable goals)
  2. Drink 8 cups of water daily
  3. Eat at least 5 servings of fruits/veggies daily
  4. And a personal one for me—no sweets unless they meet the guidelines which I have set for myself (low calorie type things to satisfy the sweet tooth in moderation). This method has always worked well for me and lately I have backtracked on the rules I usually hold to.

I am also going to try to update you all here on my blog a little more regularly.

So here we go!

I can do this!

We can do this!


  1. Rooting for you and hubby. You CAN do this Alissa! Hope the headaches stop soon as well as some stress lifted.
