First week of 2012=AWESOME!
I lost 7.2 pounds!
I know not every week is or should be like that. But that first week of dedicated weight loss is always the funnest, isn't it?
Ahhh! 7.2 pounds! That's like a newborn baby. That's like almost a gallon of milk. That's like a strange movie from Will Smith.
For those of you who are going to ask--and I know you're going to--"How did you do it?", my answer is... The good old fashioned healthy way. Exercise and watching what I eat.
I worked out every day of the week except Sunday. Some days I walked/jogged/hiked on the treadmill. Some days I played Just Dance 3 on the Wii. One day I did Pilates. The workouts lasted anywhere from 30 minutes to almost an hour.
Food wise...I'm now using myfitnesspal.com to log my daily calories (and exercise). At first I was afraid it would be tedious, but now I feel it's kind of liberating. I know exactly what I can eat and how effective my exercise is. There's no guessing or second guessing. It's right there on my computer screen. I love it! (I'm "eveperks" by the way if you want to buddy up.)
That's it. No pills. No juice diets. No low carb program. Just counting calories and wiping sweat.
How was your first week of 2012?
What I'm listening to lately: Daft Punk and "Barbra Streisand" by Duck Sauce.
