I promise, I'm not going to be Downer Mcdownerstein today!
I think I'm slowly getting back on track...Jack and I have gone out twice this week for a 2 mile walk (I'm thinking pushing the stroller is good for my arms - right?!). This is the first time I've exercised in probably 4 weeks so I'm really pleased that I got out there. As my profile states, I am a professional dieter. Part of this profession means a past with multiple exercise tapes, gym memberships, and equipment. I recently dug up a great piece of equipment: my heart rate monitor. Believe me, I am not so obsessed that I need to know if I am in the fat burning zone or not. The best feature by far (in my humble opinion) is that you log in your information and the monitor figures out how many calories you've burned. It makes me feel good that I burned over 400 calories each time I went out! Worst feature of the heart rate monitor is that by logging in your information it enables the monitor to calculate your BMI. In my case, the word "Obese" streams across the face of the watch...but I chose to ignore that. I pretend it is a French word pronounced "O-bess-ay" meaning kick ass athlete!
I am still not tracking my food like I should. I'm trying to be good still even without logging. The call of sweet tea has been nagging at me lately and I've fallen off the wagon twice. Nothing like sweet tea in the South!! But I am trying to do better.
Lastly, I have no idea how much I've lost (ZERO) or gained since falling off the wagon. The reason being is that there is no way I can give up the 2 hours during work with all that has been going on there in the last couple weeks. I'm due for my 12 week follow up for the study so I have to make an appt which will make me go in next week.
Things are looking up...to check in with everyone else head over here:
