New Diet

So I started a new nutrition and fitness programme a week or so ago (a diet in other words) and it seems to be going well. It's with www.sparkpeople.com, which is the most wixked as website. It's free to join and it takes you through your diet goals and timeframe etc.... and sets a reccommended calorie intake and workouts etc... So, my new calorie range is 1200-1550, average is meant to be 2000 and these days most people are on 2500 or so. It's definitelydoable but damn it was hard watching everyone eating Burgerfuel last night! So, new shopping list of Cape Seed whole wheat bread, the new 99.9% fat free Yoplait yoghurt (which is actually really yummy), scanning calories on tins to compare between brands (there's huge differences!), drinking green tea and eating a ton of veggies. I'm walking home from work every day and doing cardio several times a week plus strength training. The strength training hurts like hell though, probably cause I didn't stretch properly. It looks easy until you've done 60 reps. The site's fantastic though because it supplies all the strength/toning exercises and even has little videos of them to show how to do them properly.
