My Wii Fit says I'm down a pound or so. I can tell you what I'm doing that appears to be working. I am drinking my water. I feel like I am in a swimming pool I drink it so much! I am drinking from 6-10 cups a day. I am taking a lot of restroom breaks but c'est la vie!
I am not grazing. I have had some not-so-great food choices, particularly when I'm not home, but I am not grazing and snacking...well...not without being mindful! I ate a few potato chips last night, but not very many. There was a time when I would have eaten most of a bag! I am trying to fit in vegetables daily. I could do better on that front. I'm trying to keep away from starchy choices and I get tired of salad all the time, but I AM eating more veggies and a few fruits too.
I am getting in my movement. I have been wearing my pedometer. I haven't done any walking in the neighborhood but just doing my around-the-house fitness and going on errands racks up a lot of steps. I have a step in my house and when I am in that part of the house, I go up and down the step 10-20 steps to try to work my legs. I jog in place sporadically. I do activities on Wii Fit Plus for at least 30 minutes and have been known to exceed an hour at times.
I'm taking a fiber supplement. I don't know if I could attribute more action in the bathroom to these supplements, but I have been taking them for about a week. These also have chromium that supposed to help with weightloss. I am taking Omega-3 Fatty Acid supplements and a multivitamin too. I'm thinking about adding a D supplement. My husband takes a lot of supplements. I am not crazy about taking pills but I guess I could take as many as he does too.
I'm getting my 8 hours of sleep. Granted I go to bed late and get up late, but that's still 8 hours!
I am coming to Spark daily. I keep up with my SparkFriends and what they are doing to melt away the pounds. I like to encourage as well as be educated. I also like to log in my water and fitness. I need to do a better job logging in food too. Room for improvement!
What is working for you?
