And now week one of the challenge is officially on. The first weigh in was Sunday morning (yesterday). I’m happy to announce that I am already 3 pounds lighter than my application weight!! I’m sure that’s most likely just a scale difference. But, whatever, I’ll take it! :) Now that I have the 510W scale I will be using that for every weigh-in, so that will eliminate the different scale variable.
I also got my cool new Omron pedometer and started wearing that last week. I was completely shocked to see how many steps I take. I thought I took a lot more. Working, running errands, cleaning the house and running after kids all day….feels like I am walking a lot more than I actually am. Geez. That was an eye opener. Who knew that wearing a little pedometer could help me that much. (Well, I guess Omron knew! haha) The goal is 10,000 steps per day and I was shocked that I only take about 4,000 to 5,000 on days that I do not exercise! WOW! That’s how important exercise is going to be for me, I won’t be able to get in 10,000 steps per day with out it. I did figure out that a trip to the grocery and unloading said groceries was about 2,200 steps! haha. Good to know. :)
Week 1 – Gross. Avert your eyes. :)
