Today is day 8 of setting my baseline for my ActiveLink. Once I feed the USB of the ActiveLink into my computer, I should have a baseline established. The program with then design a 12 week challenge just for me. I'm very excited about the process!
Today, I did 90 minutes of deep water aerobics and 30+ minutes of slow walking. I did my walking when I went shopping. I walked the perimeter of the store inside and then went up and down as many isles as I could. Next, I did actually shopping - trying on clothes and looking for specific items. I had two coupons that I used. One coupon was a bonus coupon for $10 and the other was a $10 off coupon. The two items that I purchased were also on sale, which made the purchases that much sweeter. The first item was a top that I bought in a size that barely fits. It will be my reward for losing my next 5 pounds. The second item was something that I purchased for hubby as a reward for all of his hard work this week. I saved about $45 dollars on this shopping trip. I was pleased!
I'm glad that I packed a snack which I ate after I finished working out. I lost all track of time and didn't eat lunch until about 2:30p.m. I did get very thirsty so I was happy that I had several 20 ounce bottles of water in the car. By the time 2:30p.m. rolled around, I had already had 64 ounces of water. Pre-planning really worked in my favor today!
I can't wait to plug my ActiveLink into my computer tonight. I'm looking forward to seeing my weekly progress and to beginning my 12 week challenge.
