Today marked week 4 of my pound a week diet.
I started at 180 and this week I weighed in at 175.8 pounds. I’m definitely not an over-achiever.
I find it easier to lower my calories than I do exercising. When I get home from work, I’m tired. I don’t want to work out. And I’m too lazy to get up early enough to go running. I do manage to get some working out in during the week but no where near what I had planned to do.
Probably the best thing I’ve done is stop drinking so many calories – pop and juice. Easily 300 calories a day reduced just by drinking water instead of orange juice at night for instance.
I am using my pedometer every day. I had intended to do 10,000 steps a day but I am averaging around 7,000. But I’d estimate that I’m putting in about an extra 2500 steps a day simply because I’m conscious of how inactive I’ve become.
