Slow and steady

Tuesday, January 16, 2018

Still no scale progress, but not expecting much yet. Making slow progress, re-altering my lifestyle. Right now I feel lucky not to gain more.
Had a big social event complete with decadent potluck grazing on Sat. I did indulge but I did not stuff myself, and in fact after a period of grazing made myself walk away from the food. I still consumed too many calories, but I didn't gorge as normal or drink to much of the copious booze available. (This is a win). also the building had stairs which I climbed at least 10 times through the day.
Last night I bumped my tread mill speed from 3.1 mph to 3.2 mph. I also managed two 30 second sprints. Better than I HAVE been doing in a long time.
Tracked my calories a few day (not all) but it's enough to see the areas where I got in the habit of over consuming. Mostly it's my afternoon snack and generally over-sized portions.
Last week I had 2 slices of Pizza instead of 3. I had One beef Fajita instead of two.
It's not much, but eventually it will build to more and I am hoping that the gradual changes to my lifestyle will become permanent.

    Slow and steady is the way to go. I know that fast and immediate would be wonderful, but that weight didn't come on overnight (though it sometimes seems like it) and it takes time to come off.
    You're on the right path and heading in the right direction. You can do this!
