I was up .2 pounds for a total of 17.6 pounds lost for my Tuesday weigh-in. (My Medifast buddy hit 30 pounds this week, which is awesome!) I am actually really happy with how I did this week. In addition to three work events with meals last week (which I mentioned in my previous blog), graduation parties were on the agenda this weekend, so I was inundated with food. I ate a chicken barbecue, including a little macaroni salad and cake at the party, and part of a turkey sub at the get together the night before but I did manage to stay away from the chips, crackers, and cheese. (These are almost always my downfall.)
As for exercise, I started to do my walking dvds last week. I did 3 miles yesterday and 4 miles on Sunday. I also mowed the entire yard on Sunday (Happy Fathers Day!) which took about an hour of hustling. I like the Leslie Sansone dvds, but I try to ignore some of the chit chat. It’s also a little corny, but I do work up a sweat so it’s a good tradeoff. My knees are not really bothered by it either which is very good news. I would also like to start working with some weights for my arms pretty soon. I have hand weights in assorted colors and poundages, and I know there are some good workouts in the Fitness Resources area. I’m trying to add things a little at a time. I am definitely a creature of habit, so making too many changes at once really throws me into a tizzy.
