Changing my focus after almost 2 years on SP
Friday, May 18, 2012
It seems as if the battle to lose weight is never ending. I lost a few lbs, then gained one back, just from two days of not-so-great food (could have been worse). I'm one of those people that has to weigh myself almost every day. It helps keep me motivated. But when I saw the scale go up this week, I decided I need to change my focus. I'm going to not weigh myself for the rest of this month, and instead focusing on increasing my workouts. Right now I do 50-70 mins five days a week. I work a desk job, so that makes it a challenge to be more active throughout the day. I do little things like take the long way to check the mail (it's about a half block away), jog in place a few times for a minute or two throughout the day, stretch frequently, etc. There are 14 days left in this month. I'm challenging myself to get another 825 fitness minutes in this month, and this will put me at 1,500 for the month! I've never reached more than 1,000. We'll see if it works! I'll weigh myself on June 1st and hopefully see that number go down just a little.
