Day 21: How to wear out the floor in your living room
By 8pm, I was barely at 10,000 steps – and that was after I walked the dog. Walking 5,000 steps worth of laps around my living room was so not fun, but hey, I hit my goal. That’s what matters right? At this rate, I’m going to wear out the floor in my living room from all the pacing.
I logged my meals again yesterday too. Total calories: 1,658. I noticed that I was a lot more cognizant of what I chose to eat throughout the day. That’s the thing with logging your food – even if you’re not trying to change how you eat, you can’t help but make different choices once you’re forced to log each and every bite you take. I’m not purposely trying to eat less, but by logging everything I eat, I’m forced to pay attention to portion sizes and measure everything. I can’t just sit on the couch with a bag of chips anymore, I need to portion out each serving so I can record it in MyFitnessPal. It seems that, unintentionally, that extra step cuts down on how much I end up eating overall; which isn’t a bad thing. Eating over 2,000 calories a day for a person my size is just asking for weight gain.
