HAWMC Day 8 – Weight Loss & Health Update


I decided to forgo the prompt for today’s HAWMC entry.  Instead I wanted to update my blog on what I have been doing to lose some weight!

  1. Eating between 1200-1700 calories/day. I am trying to keep my calorie deficit around 1,000 calories. My goal is to burn 2,600 calories or more per day,
  2. Trying (my best) to EAT REAL FOOD. This is definitely something I need to be a little stricter about. I think I would see better results!
  3. Walking or doing 30DS at least every other day.
  4. Sleeping. A lot. Or at least as much as I can.
  5. Drinking around 80 oz of water per day.  I sweat a lot.  My skin has been looking really great because of drinking more water and less tea and soda.  In fact, I haven’t had a Diet Coke in over a month! That is huge for me!!

This was Saturday. I ended up filling in at work, and had a really busy day! I didn’t even exercise this day…  My calorie deficit wasn’t huge, but I moved a LOT!


I have been feeling pretty good. I think the good food and lots o’ sleep have a lot to do with it.

I had an appointment with my rheumatologist last Friday.  Bloodwork wasn’t GOOD, but it wasn’t TERRIBLE.  We talked about it, and I will see him again in six months if all keeps going well.  I will continue to have bloodwork done every month or so.  We discussed tapering down on my Prednisone, and I told him I would like to stay at the dose I am at at least until after the wedding.  I don’t want to start to taper down and possibly go into a flare.  Plus, I figure with the extra stress and everything we will have going on, it just isn’t the best time.  When I see him again in six months we will discuss it again.

Anyway, I’m off to bed, hope you are having a healthy week!
