First serious day of success

Sunday, January 08, 2012

Today was a great day. I hit 1222 calories - close to my low goal of 1200 (1200 - 1500 is my goal each day). this is the best I've done & I feel quite satisfied - even managed a square of Lindt dark chocy to finish off the day.
I also walked for 70 mins on quite a hot day, and lots of nasty hills to boot - not fun, but good for my weightloss.
I really like having a range for eating that I can go between - takes away the angst when you go over your limit, & stops you beating yourself up. And this time I'm eating simply and entering my own food, much simpler that way - rather than trying to follow someone else's suggestions. It's just too hard & involves a lot of purchasing of special ingredients, plus I find it MUCH harder to stick to. This way I go with the flow, but track it as I go, and try to eat as healthily every step of the way as I can. emoticon

    Well done Sue.
    Unfortunately I don't have the hills near me so I try to walk quicker or interval it between walking and jogging.

    You're doing great.

    Great job staying in your range! That's a good idea, never would have thought of that, I'll have to keep that in mind. Awesome job on the walk, especially with it being hot and hilly! Way to go and keep up the great work!

    emoticon emoticon Congrats on your tracking AND sneaking in a bit of chocolate! During the work week, I try to budget 1 mini peppermint patty -- those are my weakness! Keep up the great energy!!
