It's a day of firsts for me! This is the first time I've posted to a blog and most importantly, the first full day wearing my BodyMedia arm band!I put it on last night and wore it through my evening and while sleeping. How cool! It tells me I slept 7 hours and 4 minutes.I set my goals and started logging my food. My standard wake-up food is a cup of tea with 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/2 cup of whole milk.My step goal is 8000. That seems like a lot. We'll see if I get there. I may have to take a walk later ...I inmagine I'll be posting lost of questions so get ready for some silly inquires!
I am ready for ya. I can't wait to see how you did on your first day. BTW, I gave you Author rights on this site so you should be able to post as a main post rather than a comment on my post. I will be coming here several times a day and hope to get some fun stuff going.For today, I am pooped. I only got in about 6k steps today but only 4 hours sleep last night so I am resting. Tomorrow I start weights. That should be fun. I also need to do some abdomen work!TTYS!Tracy
I'd post as an author, but I can't figure out how!Yesterday was my first full day and I'd have to call it a success in many ways. Even though I fell short of my goals exercise-wise, I was really close. My goal was 8,000 steps, I got 6,800. My goal for moderate activity was 45 minutes, I achieved 40. I was motivated and logged all my food right away. As it turns out, I weigh 2 pounds less than yesterday!!!!There are definately changes I can make with my food choices. I had too much fat -- 75 grams! I guess that Mexican Lasagna (for dinner) and string cheese (as a snack) aren't the best choices!My sleep sucked last night. I only got 5 hours and 17 minutes. I was restless all night, and got up 4 times. I'm exhausted today.I'm rather worried about today. I don't want to work. I'm tired. Trick or Treat is tonight. There will be pizza for dinner and I'll be surrounded by candy. Wish me luck!
Good Luck today! I know how you feel. I ate a big plate of Nachos with the fam last night. Ate great all day and did the big splurge at night... not good. It will get better. Every day is a challenge and some days we don't do the best that we can. Dieting is messy work.Have the best day that you can today. I survived in the office sitting right beside you know who!Tracy
