Weight loss project (The plan phase one)

Week 3: Reduce bread to 2 slices of bread per day. Eat no more than 1 cup or starch per day

Week 4: Remove peanut butter from diet Max (once a week)

May: Add exercise to my routine.

Week 1:  30 minutes of exercise (cardio) 3 times a week

Week 2: 30 minutes of exercise (cardio) 5 times a week

Week 3: 30 minutes cardio + 30 minutes yoga or pilate 3 times a week

Week 4: 30 minutes of cardio +30 minutes of yoga or pilate 5 times a week.
