I predict that I will hit the third of my weight loss goals this week. It’s been so long that I don’t remember what I promised myself I would do when I hit this one. It’s also been so unfathomable to me that I would actually do it that I only have one more weight goal after this. Now I’m thinking I wasn’t aiming high enough.
Because I almost always track food and exercise through http://www.livestrong.com I also enter in my weight whenever I weigh myself, and they give me a pretty graph.
This is what it looks like for the last 18 months.
I started looking for habit changes that may be helping or hindering. Every box seems to be about 2 pounds more or less. I did not post if my weight had not changed.
I have to say it’s the addition of the biking. When I started biking 20 to 30 minutes 1 to 4 times a week I started losing. When I switched to biking at least five days a week for 30 minutes in the morning it really became a steady progression. I average 64 minutes a day of physical activity between biking, resistance machines and yoga. It doesn’t seem like it’s that much time though. Yoga is two 90 minute blocks so that really ups the average.
I am obsessed with food today because this is no snacking and no alcohol week. I have to do the no snacking every once in awhile to reset my eating habits which drift into really bad, and the no alcohol is just to make sure I can. 🙂
Now if only I could control all the other parts of my life the way I control my food and exercise.
Found this online last night. Thought it was a nice introduction with yoga. Something about the pace she does is makes this a decent workout as well. I can’t do the kneeling lunge, it hurts my knee. I had to modify that into a high lunge.
Wow this became an oddly long and boring blog! Should have used the damn bullets.
