Weight Loss Update

Here we are - 7 days since my weight loss challenge began. Sunday was the ONLY day I did not get up at 5:30am to jog/walk. Overall, I have been jogging at least 2 laps while walking 2-4 more per morning. A couple mornings I walked/jogged 2 miles. The mornings I only jog 2 laps I also run the bleachers - actually doing vertical lunges by skipping every other step on the way up and hitting each one on the way down (there are a total of 9 aisles).

I have also changed my diet - "counting" calories - trying to stay under 2,000 per day. But most of all, eating smaller meals and including better snack choices in between the 3 main meals.

And so - at the end of Week 1 - I lost 12 pounds!

Here's to another productive week - day by day!

That is awesome! I just went back to counting calories again this week myself. I am trying to figure out a way to make it a game . . . Haven't figured it out yet, though!
