So, after all the travel and umpteen course meals over the summer, you’ll not be surprised to learn that I gained a few pounds (mostly worth it, for the record). With a trip to the Seychelles booked for September, I thought it was high time to get my butt in gear and start a diet and exercise regime (after all, it’s worked in the past). Knowing cardio was probably going to be my best way forward, I downloaded the Couch to 5K app and off I went. In addition to logging my calories (sticking close to a limit of 1200 calories per day) and 30 minutes of cardio, I managed to finally link my fitbit and the MyFitnessPal app yesterday. It’s interesting to see the difference between how many steps my iPhone thinks I took vs. the actual number according to my FitBit.
With a loss of nearly two pounds this week, I’m hoping to keep the momentum going.
