I started on this weight loss journey thinking just to rid myself of excess fat. I didn't realize all the changes that would come with it. I started cooking more from scratch and found it really didn't take that much more time than a prepared dish from the grocery. And it tasted a thousand times better. I also didn't realize that once I started eating healthier it would kill most of the cravings for the unhealthy processed foods. In fact, the processed stuff tastes so unflavored, I would rather not eat it. Forget the Lay's, go for scratch made kale chips!
Today, I got another big surprise. I recently purchased and started using a FitBit One. That one little thing has pushed me to move better than anyone or anything ever has. For the last couple of weeks, I have been surpassing my FitBit goals and I have felt the difference. Today, however, I was not able to do all the walking and movement that I usually do. I MISS IT!! I have never been an athletic person. My hobbies and pastimes are more sedentary (reading, computer games etc.). I can feel the loss of the activeness. That is amazing to me. Thank goodness I can be active again!!
