but it's only 10 minutes of walking.....
Friday, August 24, 2012
I stepped on the scale for the first time in.... a while this morning. It came very close to agreeing with the Dr's scale.... just shy of 200. I was NOT happy! But, it's my own fault, but I had NO idea!
See, about 2 months ago I just lost the interest, and that's entirely what it was, I wasn't interested in putting in the work (now some may look at that and go "um, Kris, maybe dr appointment time?".... and you are 100% right, but that's not the point right now) So I just stopped. Didn't go out of my way to get any extra movement in. Oh, the excuses!!! Don't want to switch from sandals to sneakers, I get enough at my other job (standing behind a register), it's too hot, etc....
I had regularly been taking a walk around the block on my way to get the mail. It was 11 minutes of walking each weekday. Many days that's all I got, but it was consistent. Now, after 2 months of NOT going for that 10 minute walk......I've gained 12 pounds!!!
I didn't change my eating habits between then & now so I can only assume it's the lack of exercise.
SO.... YES! It' is ONLY 10 minutes, but it can make a world of difference!!!!
