OMG it is going to be soo warm today. Nearly 90 near home. I am glad that I walk at my place of work, which is coastal. Lots cooler. Today, I was so early to work I decided to take my car and follow my walk path to see how much I am actually walking. It turns out it is exactly 1.5 miles. I am so happy. It is more than I thought. But it explains why I was so tired the first day. It is so weird that even though I do the treadmill at 1.5 it just seems so different that actually walking. Hmmmm something to ponder!
Today, I wore a tighter fitting shirt, so not like me. I am so use to hiding my body. But everyone is telling me how good I look. So nice and motivating. Still seems to me that the weight loss is stalling a bit. I was reading Allans weight loss blog and he brought up again the importance of writing everything down that goes in my mouth. Now, I always do that on the weightloss program I am on. But for the last month, following my surgery I didnt. Even though I never really fell off the diet I didnt write down what I ate. I think I will start back up. Just because, I am not "cheating" on my diet doesnt mean that I am not just eating too much, even the good foods have calories. I think maybe I must have been just eating more calories than I should have. I also think that I need to increase the water and fluid intake especially in this heat we are having. I notice after my lunch walks that my hands are swollen from water retention just from the 40 minute walk. It goes away after a few tinkle breaks but it is something to take note of.
