I've added 5 to 10-minute spurts of jogging to my treadmill routine. What a difference in how I feel! I can feel different muscle areas being strengthened as well. No significant weight-loss, but I think my pajama pants are fitting more loosely now. I didn't start tracking my other measurements until April 2. I walk/jog for 50-60 minutes a day.
I've done really well with my nutritional choices -- staying within my recommended caloric intake. I've added supplements for vitamins and minerals I appear to be lacking in.
I'm eating so many fruits and veggies and really limiting my bread and pasta. I've had two slices of bread (at a restaurant) in the last three weeks, and last night, I only had 1/2 cup penne pasta with my meat and bean sauce.
I ordered a pulse oximeter from Amazon (it will arrive today), so I can start monitoring my resting heart rate in the morning. I keep putting it off because it's a pain timing myself.
I also ordered a scale (also arriving today) that's supposed to be very accurate from Amazon. So, I'll probably end up having to increase my starting weight and current weight, because it's supposed to be more in line with the doctor's office scale (ugh).
