Working It:-)

Sunday, March 09, 2014

I am so happy to say I kicked walking butt this past week and earned myself a Silver fitness medal! I did not know how much I had at the end of the day yesterday with regards to a bronze or silver so I was at least hoping for the bronze.

Last week was a good walking week for me. I made my step goal M-F and passed the goal each day which made the end result even sweeter. Tomorrow is my scale day so I will see where this walking and pacing got me in the end but I am sure I will see good results tomorrow morning.

My calories for the week were actually very good as well. I am still having to measure and weigh things because I am not comfortable eyeballing things quite yet but I know that is part of what has gotten me down the 16 pounds I am so far and I want to keep it going. Sometimes I wonder if I may even be over or underestimating some calories when I find something in the tracker is something I ate (such as California rolls from my local grocer) but then I think about it and a couple under estimations do not always mean you are WAY off track. My mind is in the right space and despite having a bit of personal self confidence issues yesterday unrelated to weight loss, I am happy to say I kicked butt this week emoticon

Good going on that silver medal. As for weighing and measuring your food, one of the "tricks" of maintenance is to keep weighing and measuring. Some things come easy - it's difficult to overestimate a bowl of greens, for example. But 3 -6 ounces of beef, chicken or salmon are VERY similar in the way they look. Oddly enough...

As for eating out, my rule of thumb has always been to divide in half.

You're doing great!
