Jennifer's Goals

Ok, so I'm a day late, but what else is new? I'm so excited about this, you guys! Here are my goals for right now. Let me know what you think.

-To drink my green smoothies EVERY DAY
-To do the 30 Day Shred EVERY DAY for 30 days
-To drink more water (this is something I'm really bad at)
-To track my calories on MFP every day and stay within goal

I was thinking of posting goals of what I should not do (i.e., to NOT eat my weight everyday in chocolate cake). BUT I find that I respond much better when I have something positive to work for instead of spending the day just trying to restrain myself from my baser instincts. mentioned eating more calories to lose weight? I have my MFP currently set on 1200 calories. Do you think that I should up it? I haven't really been tracking lately, but I know that I'm failing miserably at staying under 1200 for the day.

Ok, so I'm with Crystal about the Monday weigh ins. I think that's the best way to stay on track over the weekends. What do you guys think? Will this get me cruise-ready?


  1. Hey you!
    Great goals.

    About your calories - go to MFP, and click on tools, and then click on BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) and answer the questions and see what it gives you.
    It was very enlightening for me!

  2. Jennifer... 1200 calories is WAY too low for your sweetie. I have told you this before... :)
    Im so glad to be a part of this group... you guys rock!

  3. I put my info in both myfitnesspal and lose it ap, with how much i weighed, height, bday, all that good stuff and with how much i wanted to lose per week (2 pounds) - one said 1200 and the other said 1300 calories. so i dont know what to do either since i read on rust belt runner's blog no woman should eat under 1200. ???

  4. On the website (full, not mobile) under tools, click on the BMR tab and find out what your Basal Metabolic Rate - that will give you the absolute minimum of calories that you should be consuming.

    I would start there!
