I don't weigh in until tomorrow. To be honest , my sneak peek at the scale indicates it won't be a great loss. Maybe because I have only been serious the last couple of days. However, I do feel like I am gaining momentum and never underestimate the power of Mighty Mo!
My goals for the week (Monday's post) are going well. I have been over 10,000 steps each day. I made made healthy dinners (Monday - Chicken/Veggie Lo Mein and Tuesday - Turkey/Veggie Chili.) The water has been more of a challenge...I think 100oz might be more than I need.
It isn't quite the same as getting up in the wee hours of the morning for 3 mile walks, but my Fitbit has me moving more throughout the day. Monday, I had to make a Walmart run on my lunch hour. While I was there I decided it was a good (warm) place to get in some steps - a couple laps around the perimeter of the store should make a dent in my step count. I was surprised that it didn't help me nearly as much as I anticipated. Apparently, pushing a cart kept my arm from moving as I walked and therefore Fitbit didn't record all my steps. Oh well, counted or not, I got in some extra activity. By the way, this is not my husband - just a random stranger who has no idea I appear to be stalking him and posting pics of him on my blog.
Yesterday, I wanted to get in some of my steps at the office, but there were extra people in the office and I felt too self-conscious to walk up and down the hall like I had the day before. I spent the entire drive home from work debating with myself whether or not to take Millie for a quick walk. I am happy to say "Good Me" won and I took her. As soon as I walked in the door and before I had a chance to change my mind yet again, I grabbed her leash and headed out the door (without evening changing out of my work clothes.) While we were still in the driveway my husband called to say he was on his way home. I talked him into going with us :)
It seems pretty clear that Millie was done with the pre-walk photo shoot and waiting for my husband. She was ready to get going.
We don't have snow, but I wanted to be sure that I conveyed it was really cold.
While I made dinner Silly Millie did some post-walk stretching. I wish I were that flexible.
Then this happened before my very eyes.
I can't believe it took me until the middle of January to break out the oatmeal. I have been thinking about how good it would be for weeks, just not until later in the day. Blueberries were on sale yesterday, so cereal was on my mind for this morning.
Perfect warm deliciousness!
