Sorry to be late posting. My plan is to update each Monday, but we had a busy memorial Day. Today was quite busy as well so better late than never.
I appreciate all the comments that I received on my initial Twitter/Facebook update. It has been very encouraging!
My weight loss was a bit disappointing, but I am very pleased with my exercising. I reached my goal of 5 days a week and added a minute each time, so I am now up to 20 minutes on the elliptical. I want to focus on my exercising as my first goal and then work more on my diet. I have been better on portion control and trying to eat more healthy so that has been a good step as well.
One thing that I looked at as far as exercise was to think about how I have been successful in the past. Several years back, I was exercising regularly when I worked out at lunch. Since I am working close to home now, this is an easy option for me, so if I don’t get up early enough to work out in the morning, I use lunch time as my back up, which this last week was every time. Think about a time when exercising worked for you and see if that will work for you now. I welcome any comments on how you make exercise work for you.
Now for the weekly stats:
Weekly Stats Current: 322.8 Weekly Loss: +0.2 % Weight Loss: +.06%. To Go: 147.8 Total 2.2 Exercise – 5/5 Days – 20 minutes
A weight gain of .2 lbs is not reaching my goal of two lbs a week, but considering that in the past a long weekend usually meant overeating, I am glad it wasn’t a big weight gain. I think next weeks update will be better.
