I have been slacking BIG time in keeping track of what I have been eating for weeks!!
I have been eating the same things. But I can not remember the last time that I
actually logged onto caloriecount.com and logged what I have ate for the day!
Well that all changes today!
I told Jack last night that starting today I was back to calorie counting.
I had a visit with my PCP last week and we talked all about my weight loss
and he was blown away at not only what I have lost but that I have been able to do it during the holidays!
He asked me what it is that I did for exercise. Due to the fact that I have MS and it is harder for me to exercise consistently I always feel like I am not getting enough exercise. He explained that it is actually more beneficial for weigh loss to exercise in smaller increments then larger ones. So say walk for 10 minutes 5 times a days verses 2 miles all at once. He says but now if you are wanting to do it for cardiovascular reasons then doing it all at once is more beneficial.
So I am thrilled! I have one of those treadmills that is either at 10% or 20% incline and is killer! 10 minutes on that and I am drenched! So I am gonna start doing that a few times a day now that I know it is better for weight loss then to be on it for an hour. Before I would get on it for 45 minutes and then I could not get back on for another week!!!
The new year is almost here and I am excited to hear what every ones resolutions will be??
Mine are really already in place. I don't see much changing. As of today I am back to counting calories. My eating won't change and has not changed. I added more grains a few weeks ago. The first week that I added more grains and cut out the honey I lost 2 pounds after being in a plateau for 5 weeks!
I just started my period....ERRRRRR
Tomorrow is weigh day. So I am not expecting much out of that. But I will be sure to report it.
I am just hoping for at least a maintain..
