The scale is moving and my exercise is improving!!

Sunday, May 27, 2012

So tracking my calories to make sure I am eating enough is helping the scale go down! I am waiting until my weigh in day to weigh again and post my results.

I started walking at 1 mile per day.. then worked up to 1.5 miles per day.. then 2 miles per day. Well, today is the beginning of trying to walk 3 miles per day for 6 days a week.

I thought it would take me about 75 minutes to complete this including THE HILL OF DOOOOMMMM.

I am so happy to report that it only took me 67 minutes! I can't wait until I can do it in under an hour. I know if I was on the treadmill I can finish 3 miles in under an hour-- but on my hilly roads where I live it takes longer for me!

So ===== YAY ME!

My great kiddos (ages 9 & 10) also completed this 3 miles with me!

In two days the kids and I will be going out of town with my husband on one of his jobs. I am hoping that I continue to exercise and eat right while out of town.

---------
oh and hey JAIRIE813-- good job on your no soda streak! I am also on a no soda streak-- 31 days since I have had a soda! We rock!

    Keep up the great work! That is awesome that the kids do the exercise with you! Also giving up soda is a huge victory, I discovered when I gave up soda, it took one week to get over it!

    Awesome job!! I always walk in a hilly area too and today was the first time I drove to a flat area to walk. It makes a huge difference! I keep telling myself that the hills are burning way more calories than the fitness tracker says though. I hope you have a great trip!

It so good that you are including your kids in your activities. This will only benefit them! I wish my family was more active when I was younger, but we still have time!
Keep up the good work! :)
