I've lowered my SP calorie range by 100 calories on both the high and the low end.
I also looked at my daily results vs my SP calorie range for the past month. I knew there were a handful of days where I ate above my range.
No, I ate above my range HALF the days! Holy Moly! Most times it was just by 20-30 calories, but even if that's not a significant number, it does clearly mean that I was eating at the high end of the range half the time. And that doesn't include the days where I ate at the high end but stayed within. Definitely an area for improvement!
With respect to a new video to try, I found this SELF article on beginner yoga videos, so I'm going to work my way through them until I find one I like:
I also thought of two more areas where I can improve (I mean, I'm sure there are a bunch, but I can only work on so many things at one time).
Measuring is one. I've been using a scale for most things, so overall I think I'm doing well, but when I use teaspoons or tablespoons I'm a little lax. Time to get the measuring spoons out instead of using regular silverware.
The other is, I was reading yesterday about the importance of chewing food thoroughly. It apparently has a lot of benefits. It slows down your eating (which may help you eat less) and improves your digestion. So, I'm trying to add more chewing to my routine. I find it hard to do because I'm so accustomed to gobbling down my food, but the benefits seem clear so it's worth a try.
So, I have my plan, and we'll see how it pays off on April Fool's Day, which is my next weigh-in.
