(Low-Carb/Lower Calorie)
Weight: 224.4

 Today is my first day of getting healthy. My goal is hopefully to lose 80 lbs by October 2016.

I joined this blog for support and to be able to ask questions and hopefully get quick and easy responses.

I started working on my MyFitnessPal (again). So if anyone uses that and would like to help motivate me that way, that would be lovely!

Today I have eaten:

Breakfast: 1 hard boiled egg and a strawberry protein bar thing

Morning Snack: Clementine


I went on a 37 minute, 2 mile walk. (My shin splints are terrible so I can't quite run yet) For once though, my shins only hurt for the first mile and then they felt a little better. (Now they're super sore and I returned from my walk about an hour ago)


I am getting ready to make lunch. I'm thinking of having some quinoa with corn and possible two hard boiled eggs. (I'm sure that's probably not a good lunch but it sounds good and I know it's healthier than what I normally eat.)


Progress as of today: 0 lbs lost so far, only 84.4 lbs to go!

Welcome and i hope you find the motivation and inspration you need to achieve your goals.

Eating and everything sounds good. If you have shin splints, the best healing method is to rest your legs. Even if you don't want to. I used to have terrible ongoing shin splints, for over two years because I thought it was ok to exercise with them so they weren't healing. I am finally almost there now! finally pretty much healed :)

Welcome! Shin splints are awful! Ouch! HOP is right - gotta rest and fully heal them. Maybe try some weights. I used to think only cardio would burn calories - but weights will too!
