I ate an apple and a "fun size" pack of caramel m&ms instead of breakfast, so about 175 calories on the day so far.
I'm taking a three mile walk on my lunch break instead of eating right now.
Not really sure what I'm doing yet, but the beer belly is becoming noticable so I need to start getting off my ass for the next few months.
I don't have a working scale but at 5'8" I'm probably pushing 170 lbs (77kg?) and I would like to be max 150 without losing any muscle. Weight loss is pretty straight forward. Keeping my dad arms could be a trick.
If I can count, which is questionable, I only consumed about 1200 calories today. The what I'm eating needs some work.
Did another 4ish mile walk on my lunch break.
I'm not sure how to precisely measure it, but if anyone has a good tool (I could play with google maps more and see if it lets me draw a route), I'd be curious. 3-4 is my best guess.
Hmm, from what this google map tool I pulled up is suggesting it's a bit shy of three.
Probably feels longer because there are a lot of hills.
My evening route adds it up to about an even 4.
Google Fit is kind of revealing in so far as the message the numbers are telling me is basically "just keep doing what you're doing but change your diet."
Yikes, Fit registered about 1000 "steps" while I was sitting on my ass in a cubicle.
Maybe it's the ex-army in me speaking, but it seems kind of crazy that this app includes options for all sorts of obscure sports but doesn't allow me to input pushup and situp reps.
Like there's literally a sled riding option but no good old army MSE lol
Well it's logging 5.3 miles for me today, so I think I can account for error and still claim a solid 5.
This morning I registered 157.
It can fluctuate a few pounds any given day, but the trend down is tangible. All I've been doing is eating less and making sure I walk at least 3 miles a day.
Sliding into more of a routine now. I take a hilly 3 mile run on my lunch break twice a week and walk for about two hours on Sundays. Beyond that, just reminding myself that any time I'm standing still I could be moving instead.
I was thinking more upper body when I started this, but it's been all cardio. Weight seems to have stabilized in the high 150s after dropping like 10 pounds in two weeks, and that's fine. I've been weighing in every morning, and I think it's still trending down, just much slower than initially.
Since I managed to stay committed to this for a month, I went ahead and bought a cheap elliptical machine today. Get excited.
Also bought a sizeable chunk of Star Trek TNG to occupy me while I use it.
Hit sub 150 this morning. I averaged 140 when I was in the army 15+ years ago. I need to start phasing out the caloric deficit part of it and just focus on muscle pretty soon here.
That post is so suspicious lol
