I’ve tried (and tried) to lose weight over the last two years, and it hasn’t happened, but this year I’m trying again.
To keep it simple (and not too daunting) I’ve set my goal for 2013 at 24lbs – 2lb a month. I’m using My Fitness Pal to track my food, and have it synced to Endomondo to record my exercise (both free apps).
Inspired by Hawaii Planner (my fitness inspiration!) I’m setting specific targets for the year, and will break them down month by month, week by week.
Year // Month // Week
- Weight loss: 24lbs // 2lbs // 0.5lbs
- Walking: 300 miles // 25 miles // 5.76 miles
- Minutes Walked: 5200 // 433 // 100
- Calories Burned: 52,000 // 4333 // 1000
On my walk today I took 18 minutes and 24 seconds to complete a mile and I’m hesitant to speed this up just yet as the last thing I want is my hip bursitis to flare up again. For now I’ll keep doing what I’m doing, and hope to decrease the times later in the year.
Are you trying to lose weight in 2013? If so, have you set a specific target? Let me know, I’d love to follow your progress
