Aargh! Up 2 lbs!

Saturday, December 12, 2009

No, not really - just weight fluctuations.

But it did make me reevaluate my calories in vs. calories out. Until the rains stop I am at a loss for walking unless I climb on the treadmill. *sigh* So today I said, "get on tubby!"

I did 3 miles and I feel fabulous! Not fast miles, mind you, just 2.5 miles per hour, but I did it in 2 increments; 30 min and 50 min! I am going to try to get on again tonight and see if I can manage at least another 20 for an even 100. 100 minutes is half what I was doing regularly so I would be satisfied.

A body gets used to the extra calories in.

    Oh for sure......tubby! That's the last thing I'd think anyone would call you. Kudos for taking to the treadmill. It's a great substitute for walking outdoors.

    It's been really cold here, so I've been doing WATP. I got started on them because of what you had written about them. Now I've gotten my husband doing them too. They are an easy way for me to get moving when I don't feel like it.

You are anything but "tubby". emoticon

    Good for you. I won't walk outside when it is cold so it is either the mall or Leslie. And right now unless you go to the mall early it gets crowded (understatement). So I stick with Leslie.

    Good for you! I've been trying to change my attitude about the treadmill and it's helping. I"m not dreading it quite as much, although I still prefer being outdooors!

    Tomorrow is the last day of my two week eating more trial-
following in your tiny footsteps, I hope.
Today I worked out for 100 minutes-
60 cardio and 40 ST.

    There's plenty of distractions that can get us off track this time of year. Good for you for getting on your treadmill - twice. Keep it up!

    Exercise makes such a difference, doesn't it? I'm so glad you were able to use your treadmill to "roast" some calories, Linda - emoticon !! You're terrific for refusing to let inclement weather keep you from being well-exercised. emoticon Susan

  You can say that again - I mean about the body getting used to the extra calories in. I've been sick and have not been eating as much - only 2 meals a day instead of the 4 smaller meals. It made a difference, but now I am hoping that when I go back on my regular routine, things won't be more difficult. Maybe not. Have to hold good thoughts always. I have lost a couple of the lbs. I gained back from Thanksgiving.

My exercise has fallen off a good bit while being sick, but I did managed a few mins. today on my bike. Not enough to really record, but I will record it nonetheless. Some better than none - right.
