Weekly Weigh-In: Remodeling Workout
So, I'm a day late with my weigh-in this week. It's been a busy, busy week. Brian took off last week to add on a room (well, frame in a room in our mostly finished basement) for Brianna. I haven't stepped on the treadmill since Friday, but I've made my calorie burn every day since last Thursday (and I was close then). I'll just say that painting, moving furniture, deep cleaning existing bedrooms after one child moves to a new bedroom, and trying to keep up with meals for everyone and laundry have their redeeming qualities -- they burn a lot of calories.
Looking back on June, I was a bit bummed that I only lost 4 lbs. total for the month. Not really where I wanted to be. I'd already decided that July 4 was my last "big fling" for the summer, then, I was getting back to diligently counting calories consumed and burned. I really didn't overeat as much as I thought I might on July 4 and, with all the remodeling work, I lost 2.2 lbs. this last week! A nice start to my recommittment if I do say so myself.
So, what about you? How are your weight loss efforts going? Just remember: Do or do not; there is no try.
