Intentional exercise is working for me! I've been walking to work pretty much every day and sometimes even walking home! The walk is an extra mile and a half to the transit center near my job. I already walk a mile and a half to my bus stop so this makes for 3 miles a day. Watching calories adds up to a powerful combination.
I've managed to not sneak weigh myself since Tuesday, and my regular weigh-in is tomorrow morning. Losing that second pound would be nice, but I agree with your comments and don't want to put too much stock in it. I'll be getting a tape measure tomorrow too and will begin waist measurements. I like having there be at least one element of my physical appearance that I can change. :-)
Gay bowling starts its Winter League the first Sunday in January - I'm gonna sign up with a team! I've never been in a bowling league before. This is light exercise, to be sure, but it's social, gets me out in my community and out of my apartment. Crucially, it helps with work/life balance. I just got weekends off instead of Sun/Mon, so that should open doors. There may be sports groups or other things I can do on Saturdays. By the way, I know that drinks and snacks while bowling can be a temptation, especially during the winter months. I don't drink, and I'm good at making healthy choices with snacks. A lot of us are in the same boat. This is not a league of 20-year-old modern dancers!
Thanks so much for your comments! I always look forward to reading them.
