I am hoping by dong some good stretches in the morning as well as evening, that I will have better runs.
I also hopped on the scale this morning, and I am down one more pound!
This puts me within 1 pound of my goal of 195 on 08/08/2015! I can do this. :)
I am giving a concert 08/23. I hope to be closer to 190 (and further from 200) by then. One step at a time.
My next improvement on my eating, besides stopping all food at 6:00 p.m., 7:00 at the latest, extra water, lots of whole grains, fruits, veggies, lean proteins, and low sodium is to make small substitutions.
For instance, last night I had a dinner break at 5:45 after teaching classes and before rehearsal. I didn't have much money, and had eaten my lunch I had packed. So I decided to go to Wendy's. I looked on their site and compared caloric content on their dollar menu. I had planned on a cheeseburger and a baked potato, but I went with a small chicken sandwich. And I found out they sell a bag of apple slices for $.99! I also ordered a small chocolate frosty. I probably could have done without that, but it was hot and a nice treat. :) With this meal,was low in carbs and sodium. I don't eat much sugar, so I feel like I need a treat now and then. Plus I woke up one pound lighter!
Well, I am off to the trail. Today I teach group piano and then am practicing on a Steinway downtown at the complex where I have retired musical friends. It's on the waterfront. And they don't mind me coming in and tinkling the ivories for several hours.
Happy Friday! :)
Update: I did 450 consecutive steps on the trail today! :)
