I can believe we are starting our 3 week. This challenge has been so great and I am so proud of all the ladies that are doing it with me. I think most of us have been sick, so it has been hard, but we are still going strong and that makes me very happy.
I have been walking every day and I am reaching my goal of at least 10,000 steps a day. I am tracking my steps using my Omron Fitness Tri-Axis USB Pedometer (HJ-323U). I love this pedometer because it does so much more than tell me how many steps do I have each day. The Pedometer keeps track of aerobic steps, steps per minute, and even the calories burned. At the end of the day I connect the pedometer using the USB to my computer and it uploads all the information to Omronfitness.com and there in the dashboard you can see your daily and weekly progress and even challenge yourself to achieve a best personal step count. This pedometer is very accurate and counts strides, so you will not get false readings while riding in a bumpy car.
I am also very happy with my new Omron 510W Scale. I love that the scale can measure not only the BMI, but also the body fat percentage, the visceral fat and the skeletal muscle percentage.
As for my progress on the scale, I lost 5 pounds this week for a total of 20 pounds since starting this challenge
I can tell you it feels great to put on your clothes and they are loose on me. But the best part is when I see people and they tell me I look great and they can tell I am losing the weight and getting healthier.
For this week my goal is to continue walking and drink more water. I sometimes get really busy at work and forget to drink as much water as I want to.
We are also going to be modifying our workouts and so you can follow along by downloading the PFD file.
I will be extra busy for the next couple of weeks, I am going to be preparing everything for my son’s birthday party, but I will find that time to work out, because I can see the results now.
How are you staying active?
