I know i'm not weighing in yet but I was just so excited I had to say something!! Today is my first day exercising in like, well, ever really. And I went on a 50min moderate walk with my puppy dog this afternoon!!! I'm so proud of myself!! I think this is also going to do my arms some good with puppy.. My hands were red raw from holding his lead and constantly having to pull him away from this or stop him from running too far forward etc.
I know most people like exercising with a buddy, but I quite prefer it just me and the dog. It gives me time to relax, well not actually physically relax, but mentally relax. We just walk wherever we want with no one hounding us (well i hound him but no ones hounding me!!
I want to get a pedometer so I can know how many steps im doing a day. But I don't know where to get one from and I don't want to pay an arm and a leg for one either. Does anyone know anywhere (possibly online) that has cheap pedometers?
I'm also still amazed at how many calories I do actually consume in a day. People usually look at theirs and say "wow, thats alot" but im looking at mine and its not much. I came home and pigged out yesterday and it was still under my alocated 1500cals. Maybe I should reduce how many cals i let myself have in one day because this is about change, i need to change how much I eat to change my weight, and if im eating what I always have not much is going to change.
