Well today was that dreaded day to step on the scale again. I did pretty good with drinking my water last week, but I am afraid I ate a lot this past weekend. We had company and I like to make dessert when we have company. But do I eat one small piece as a weekend treat. No, I eat a large piece and go back for seconds.
On the exercise front I didn't do a whole lot but I did try to fit some extra movement into my days. With diet and exercise I have to work on getting that all or nothing attitude out of my head. Small changes do add up and they are easier to maintain for the long-term. My little guy is going to bed a little earlier now so I am going to try and do some yoga each evening after he goes to bed. During the day I will try to fit in a walk and/or some strength exercises.
So this weeks weight is the same as last week 159 lbs. I am just glad that number did not go up. Hopefully I will see that number go down in the next few weeks.
For this week I am going to continue focusing on drinking my water and in addition I am going to try to cut out pop. Over the summer I started drinking coke again and now I am drinking almost one a day. This week I am going to try to only have one coke the entire week. Pop has no nutritional benefit and cutting it out is a simple way to reduce your calorie intake. Note I said a simple but not easy way. As those of you know who have been hooked on pop it is a hard habit to break.
So that's it for this week: drink lot's of water, no pop, and add in some extra movement by doing some yoga at night, and strength exercises and walking during the day.
