It’s week four and I’m still on the injured list but I’m finding that weight loss is still possible. The last time I posted I was in the middle of the Kelly Starrett Maintaining Your Body work shop. I’m still in the middle because I had to stop and purchase some equipment to work with.
When I had to stop and rest because of my back the weight started coming back with a vengeance. Even though I was now logging my food and drinking water weight loss was not happening. My fat percentage was increasing every day! When I asked my trusty trainer what the heck was going on he told that I was losing muscle. NO!
Something needed to be done and fast. While setting up my new Aria scale I decided that I needed to change my goals. The goal was originally set to 10,000 steps. As you can clearly see I was barely reaching that goal on a daily basis.
It was time to kick it up a notch! I reset the goal to 15,000 steps. Loving this graph because you can clearly see the difference. More was going to be required on my part. If I couldn’t lift weights or run I had to at least walk! So walking is exactly what I did. I began hitting the track and getting in 2- 3miles a day and I knew that I would rack up those steps through out the rest of the day. My method was working! I’m using the RunKeeper and MapMyRun apps to track my progress. I need to compile my data and enter it on Daily Mile. The graph drops off because I lost my gadget yesterday at a restaurant. It was on the pocket of my pants which I rarely ever have it there. I always tuck on the bra strap. Lucky for me my friends found it and hung on to it. I was lost without it this morning!
