Yesterday I weighed in at 134.8, a wee bit off the plateau. Then I gorged myself on barbeque potato chips and had a cola last night, so -- no surprise - back up to 135.2 this morning.
So here's the take-away, as they say in marketing: If I keep up with the exercising every day, I can eat junk occasionally and maintain my weight. But if I want to lose? Nope.
This week's step/treadmill tally:
Friday, Sept. 11 - 1 hr. on TM
Sat. Sept 12 - at least 10,000 steps shopping downtown, meeting a friend for lunch, and walking to and from the subway (I didn't wear my pedometer).
Sun. Sept. 13 - nothing, because I wore new shoes on Sat. and my toe was sore and I'm getting old enough to know not to push things
Mon. Sept. 14 - 1 hr. on TM
Tues. Sept. 15 - 9,451 steps (no quite 10,000 but I've got a deadline, so no more two hour walks for awhile)
Wed. Sept. 16 - 58 min. on TM
Thurs. Sept. 17- 1 hr. on TM
Next week, maybe less junk food. But I've got a looming deadline, so I make no promises!
