Update for January 23rd
Today was my weigh in. I honestly didn't think I was going to do well for the fact that I was sick for 4 days and didn't do anything really but sleep and sit on the couch. But I ended up losing 1 pound and have officially lost a total of 10 pounds in 3 weeks! I am so very proud of myself!
I am almost half way to my goal of losing 25 pounds! My last day for weigh in at work is the 27th of February and at that time I will take an updated pic like in my first post! I'm not seeing much of a difference in my appearance but maybe comparing pics will help me to see where I've lost this 10 pounds hahaha
How I have lost my weight so far:
Drinking nothing but water and juice.I have given up on any type of carbonated beverage. By keeping myself hydrated, my body can work better in burning those calories!
I have been watching my portion control and calories. I have been eating the Weight Watchers meals for breakfast and for lunch and then whatever I want for dinner, as long as i'm in range for my calorie count for the day! I document everything I eat with my Noom Coach app!
Walking! I have been trying to keep a goal of at least 10,000 steps a day (5 miles). Some days are better then others, but most days I do reach my goal!
Push myself to go further and faster. I had been walking 1.5 miles on my treadmill and then taking a walk in the afternoon with my son and my pup. I have been trying to beat that by walking 2 miles on the treadmill and then also taking my walk in the afternoon. Taking those extra steps helps keep me in line and pushing my body to do more! If you keep in the same routine, eventually your body will get use to it and nothing else happens. At least that is how it is for me. I have also added in a few other workouts into my routine in hopes that will get my body moving in the right direction.
So if you are following my journey I urge you to just get up off the couch and walk around the house for 10 minutes. Or even walk around the block. You will be amazed at how much better you will feel when you get done. And you have burned a few calories in the process! Eat a little healthier. Even a McDonalds side salad is better then that cheeseburger on the menu! Watch your portions and get in the habit of drinking water!!
