I’m going to aim for five gym trips in the next seven days.
We talked last night in our group about the fact that for 3-4 days while my body adjusts to greater activity levels, I’d go into overdrive on the calorie-burning front (there’s a more scientific term for it, but I’m still a little groggy this morning), so I’ll eat a hard-boiled egg or a cheese stick (protein, baby) right afterward to be sure I don’t plunge my body into starvation mode.
During my last bout of education, I went to the gym almost every day. About half of the days, I’d do a spin class that kicked my ass, and on the others, weights. I’m realizing as I look at how I’ve aged, and the goal of getting 10,000 steps in each day, that I may need to do almost an hour of cardio just about daily.
I guess I understand why so many of these weight loss blogs turn into running blogs!
Still down that one pound, so still at 20 pounds lost. Yea! Just 60 to go!
