Wa-hoo, I was down 1 lb on the scale. I'm crossing my fingers that this isn't a fluke. The thing about the exercise habit is that it has side effects like wanting to eat healthier and drinking more water. Plus, my energy level has been a little higher, so I've been more active in general. Maybe it's a coincidence, but I sure hope not!
Day 5 -- Did a workout through On Demand on Comcast. I know these aren't really free because we're paying for cable, but it still feels like a free exercise video. I love that you can choose from beginner to advanced, the length of the workout, and what type of activity you want. I don't love that I notice how dirty my carpet is when I'm doing crunches on the carpet. I swear I vacuum regularly. Wow, four sentences beginning with "I" and multiple other uses of the word. What a narcissist.
Day 6 -- Walked the dog after dinner. We went 35 minutes which was about 4000 steps and burned >200 calories. Unfortunately, it got a little dark, so I need to walk her earlier. It did cause me to pick up the pace through the heavily wooded area.
Day 7 -- Another TV workout. It was 24 minutes, and they claim that it's the equivalent of a 2 mile walk. Unlike a walk, it's got upper body moves so it feels like a better workout. The dog got nuthin' out of this though.
