So, for the past 6 or 7 weeks, I’ve been making a concerted effort to be more active. My goal has been to get out and be active for at least 30 minutes, at least 5 days a week. For the most part, I’ve been successful at meeting that goal. Most days I take the dogs for a walk, since that benefits the dogs as well as me. Some days I head out on the bike, taking Jack Jack with me for company. And other days it is yardwork or something else that becomes my fitness activity for the day.
Last night I thought I’d get on the Wii Fit, just to see where my weight is. I haven’t weighed myself since early July, so I was pretty sure I’d lost a pound or two. Imagine my surprise (and dismay!) when I saw that I’d gained 3.5 pounds! I know it’s not a lot, but still . . . I’ve been working hard and really, honestly thought I’d see a reward for that work (yes, yes being healthier is a reward in itself, but come on, I wanted to see a weight loss too).
I won’t quit being active, because I know it’s good for me and it’s great for the dogs. Guess it’s time to really get serious about what I eat, since the bump up in activity didn’t cut it. Sigh.
