First, it was arctic cold sweeping through town. Now, a layer of snow has fallen. And I can't forget the blizzard of work that has dropped on me this week. My number of steps on the Fitbit totally reflect all three issues.
That said, I really need to find a pair of good walking boots so that I can increase my activity level. Fifteen minutes wouldn't be too much to ask of myself. Happily, my eating has stayed within my ranges, and I'm still 10 lbs down.
Unfortunately, with the penguin weather, I am having a terrible time getting my 8 cups of water down the hatch and have resorted to allowing tea and decaf coffee to count as water. Just looking at a glass of water makes me shiver.
Measuring everything that goes into my mouth has really helped me stay on track. I eyeball it all when it's not possible to whip out a measuring cup (or when they are all in the dishwasher), and I'm being truthful with myself with those eyeballed amounts. I know what 1/4 c looks like. I'm not trying to tell myself that 1/2 c of fresh fruit is 1/4 c.
