In my last blog, I talked about the past year and looking forward. I included a list of goals. The first was to get at least 2 liters of water a day. I promised myself that I wouldn't add anything else until that goal was attained and a natural part of my life. I feel that it has now become a habit so I am ready to tackle another goal. I'm going to add cardio 1X time a week to my habits.
Its not that I don't do exercise. This month I will have over 1500 fitness minutes. But these minutes are pretty much all walking (we don't have a car). I walk a minimum of 2 miles a day, sometimes 6-8 miles. But this rarely makes me break a sweat since the streets are all cobblestone which makes speed walking a suicide attempt. So I aim to add one session of TurboFire to my weekly routine. Once this becomes a habit, I will try to increase it to 2X a week. I'm also going to start food tracking gradually. Not every day, obsessive tracking, but gradually. I want to avoid the all or nothing attitude so I need to go slow.
Hopefully, these little changes will make a difference. I'm debating whether I should purchase a scale. I know that change in the way my clothes fit will take time, so maybe a scale would help me see the progress I'm making. BUT I don't want to get obsessive and weigh myself every day and be devasted when it doesn't move. What to do... Any suggestions???
