If Nothing Else

If nothing else, I have been getting my exercise once a day by walking up the many flights of stairs my floor of my office building. Also, have started parking pretty far away. Until I start back on the Wii Fit and other more regular exercise, this will have to do. And I'm hoping as the days pass, I'm a little less winded when I finally get up to my floor!

New Pedometer Year Starts Tomorrow

Tommorow starts another new year on the pedometer with a chance to earn $500 if I can make it to Level 5 this time. Last two years I've hit Level 4, which is pretty good but not worth as much $. Level 5 does not require running marathons, it just requires a day in/day out committment to at least taking a reasonable amount (7000 steps)  each day. You do that, you pretty much are guaranteed Level 5.

Starting tommorrow, I'd like to rededicate myself to taking the same approach with my weight loss effort, meaning I don't plan to lose the rest of my weight with some crazy cabbage diet or exercise regimen. Eating reasonable amounts of the food I love and and diing at least some kind of activity every day worked before and it will work again.

Holidays Over and Mostly Sugar Free

First of all thanks to my friend Enz for the harrassment to get back to the blog. I didn't quit or anything. Just busy Holidays followed by a great visit with friends in Kansas City, and just now settling back in. Definitely picked up a couple pounds in KC with all the barbeque and beer.

In the meantime though, I've learned something I think will help.Whenever I eat a lot of foods loaded with sugar/white flour I've noticed I really feel crappy, don't sleep well, and wake up feeling unrested and lacking energy. Now I love ice cream and fried/breaded stuff as much as anyone, but I think the way it messes me up when I overdo it is a clear signal from my body telling me to quit it. For the past few days, I've cut way back on these things and have felt much better. It's just really another avenue to my original only-eat-when-hungry road that helped me shed all the weight in 2010, but I have had a lot of trouble losing pounds lately so I'll take any avenue I can get!
