This week I was very successful in sticking to my caloric intake. I feel like it's not a big challenge, but rather something that's becoming a habit. I stuck to my daily caloric goal and usually came in a little under.
Only two days of formal exercise, but I felt like I was running around all week. Does that count?
Healthy Change #4 was a pleasure to work on. Getting midday sunshine most days? Awesome. The challenge is especially important to me because at my last physical my blood work revealed that my Vitamin D levels were low. Not a surprise, really, knowing that I live in the region of the US that has the highest levels of Vitamin D deficiency.
I did have some challenges since we've had lots of rain here this week, but I felt like I did a good job. The challenge will be the winter. I'm going to have to try to overcome my aversion to sub-freezing temperatures and get out for walks any way.
I am so pleased with my results this week, and that motivates me to keep going for another week. I also love that my clothing is starting to feel a little looser and I'm feeling better overall. And, I'm just above my goal of losing 1 lb. per week.
