Down a little

Sunday, August 19, 2012

This week was all about easing into a healthy lifestyle. I stayed within my calorie limits but didn't exercise yet. I didn't want to burn myself out too soon.

The scale today (Sunday is my weigh-in day) doesn't show any loss, but my measurements show that my waist is down an inch and a half and my hips are down an inch. So, that is good.

My plan for this week is to continue eating as I now am, but start adding even a little physical activity. I'm not sure realistically how much I can squeeze in, because school starts this week (I'm a teacher), but I will be satisfied if I exercise even one day.

All in all, I'm happy with my first week. I think I'm off to a good start.

    As for exercise, there are some you can do at your desk that will not distract you from your work. SP has some suggestions in its exercise section.
