Yesterday marked four successive days of hitting my calorie budget, and three successive days of hitting my current walking goal. And you know what? I feel great! I’ll admit the walking has been a little bit of a struggle, because I love reading and I’d gotten used to sitting and reading on my breaks and lunch again, but I’m remembering how much I really enjoy walking during work. It’s a nice antidote to all the sitting I do, and it’s a good stress relief.
Not that my job is hugely stressful, mind. But it’s still nice to get up and away from the desk for a while.
The calorie budget has been a little bit more of a struggle, though. Not that I specifically want to overeat for the sake of overeating, mind. Most days, at least. But I really do love the taste of chocolate, and cookies, and things like that. However, I recognize that these things should be an occasional treat instead of a dietary staple. Intellectually, I recognize this. Emotionally, I wanna cookie!
But still, things are going well. And my pants, which were feeling a little tight recently, have started to loosen up again! I must be going the right direction!
