Ok I really need the scale to move downward, like seriously! All week it's been pretty much the same. I did not walk today on my treadmill. I do not plan to. Maybe I am just looking for an excuse NOT to, but I found when I added in the walking, the scale stalled.
Frankly my first goal is to lose weight. To lose weight to be able to do more. So, maybe it's an excuse for now but lets see if the scale moves. Maybe I wasnt eating enough?
I think I need a heart rate monitor. Something to give me a more accurate reading on how many calories I might be burning. One would think I would burn far more calories walking a 24 min mile than riding a bike, sitting on my butt for the same amount of time. NOT even close according to many calorie burning calculators I have tried and SparkPeople's estimate.
I was off work yesterday. I biked, walked, kettlebelled, did steps on my stairs and even tried to jog for a few minutes on the treadmill. That was not a pretty sight.
Today biked 50 mins, then gave it another go and did 30 more. I would REALLY like to see at least 2 pounds gone by Saturday.
Oh Fairy Godmother.........? Where are you?
Working tonight 5 hours. That will take my mind off food and keep me busy.
