The 1500 Plan

I fell off the health wagon over the holidays. I’m going to do my best to get back on and reach new goals.

Eating is the most important aspect, so to help, I dusted off InDesign and made a weekly chart I could print out. It’s based on the eating plan I’m on when I go to Hilton Head Health, only increased a bit. 1500 calories a day. 300/400/500 for Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner and 100 calorie snacks in between. Fairly aggressive for me on a long-term basis, but I’m hoping I can do 2-3 weeks and then morph that into a more normal plan.

I think my OCDish desire to fill out a perfect week of X’s will help me get it done.
