Health/Diet Update

I picked up on my workouts again this week. The little weight I lost were gained back and I'm fed up with the slack. BUT the real motivation came from when I came across an article on google. The article featured a young lady in Essence magazine who was from Morrisville, NC and she lost 125lbs in 9 months. My original plan was not to lose the 100lbs that fast, but its close enough to pay attention to her method....I want to lose my 100lbs in a year.

My goal is to burn 700 calories per workout which has been meet since I've started back. That is my made up goal to assist with the young lady's weight loss method. She said she works out an hour a day and followed Dr. Ian Smith's Fat Smash Diet Book.  I found the book on for .92 cents and I said it wouldn't hurt to try it for that price. It's available on amazon and walmart, but you can never beat prices. My book just got shipped so I'll probably start the plan next week to get a feel of what I need to buy at the grocery store. I'm actually excited about restarting my regimen this time. This is definitely one of my top priorities not just for the year, but for my life. I havent set an exact weight goal for december, but I do plan on seeing a significant difference by the end of the year. I have my fitness pal account created, and by far, it is the best food journal I have come across.....anywho, my sl update will be up soon :o)
