What am I doing wrong? What can I adjust?
Wednesday, March 20, 2013
Seriously. What am I doing wrong? For a 43-year-old who weighs over 250 lbs, I should be dropping weight faster than I am. Week 1 was 2 lbs, week 2 was 1.4 lbs. Week 3 was a great week - 4.4 lbs. Then Weeks 4 and 5 were both 1.6 lbs. Week 6 was 1 lb. And its looking like Week 7 is also going to be less than 2 lbs.
I know I should be greatful that the scale is going down even though it is agonizingly slow, but I sure would like another really good week to help get the motivation back up. I think my body has adjusted to the routine. It must be time to shock it with a drastic change. I guess it is time to add more exercise. Since I know I have to go up and down a lot of stairs playing Magic Quest at Great Wolf next week, I am going to start practicing by going up and down the steps here in the office. I'm going to set my phone stop watch and see if I can do 10 minutes. Here I go......
......Well that didn't go so well. I only did about 1.5 minutes. I went up and down 4 times. It seems I will have to do this 6 - 7 times throughout the day to get to 10 minutes.
