eat more, lose more?
Sunday, October 06, 2013
It's been about a week and a half since I started looking at my calorie count. I've made little steps in raising my daily amounts while still being close to my WW daily points. I use my Activity Points earned more often now to make up for the difference. So far it seems to be helping. Since eating those extras I have seen small drops on the scale and a big lift in my energy every day. I don't feel like falling over exhausted every few hours.
Part of this process has been eating some foods that I haven't had in a long while. Processed foods like Betty Crocker potatoes (my boyfriend loves them) or tonight, Pillsbury biscuits. I have learned that I'm not missing them. At all. I find them to be odd tasting, if having any taste at all, and not worth the points or the lack of loss on the scale. I just don't like that stuff anymore.
I have also noticed over the last few weeks that my kickboxing just doesn't pack the punch it used to. Yup, pun totally intended :D I have to work much harder than the actual workout is to get my heart rate up and even then it's not up by as much as it should be. It gets into the moderate range but just barely. It used to be a good border on high level workout. This is good and bad. It means that my body and heart are stronger and healthier. That's what I want. It also means that I have to find something else to do. So, on to aerobics. A new workout pattern that I don't know means I'll have to work hard to keep up and learn the moves. That means it should get the ticker ticking faster. I also found some different kickboxing routines, the Walk Away the Pounds videos and several others on Youtube. I'll give them all a try.
I have 4 weeks to try to reach my birthday goal. 8 more pounds. I don't know if I'll make it or not. Either way it will go at some point. I just thought it would be good to do by then. Guess we will have to wait and see. I better not eat those darn biscuits again!
