According to my exercise log, both yesterday and today I have actually met my exercise goal (goal is 210 minutes over 7 days or 30 min avg per day)
From this point forward I will count “good days” as days for which the total minutes for that day and the 6 previous days was 210 or more. That means I have had 2 “good” days this month. If I shoot for 45 min/day I can do 45,45,45,45,30 and take two days off, and still meet my targets.
I’ve discovered that my weight can vary something like 4 or 5 pounds during the day. Not really surprising since a liter of water is 2 pounds. It may also be my scale… I can change up to 3 pounds by placing my feet a little farther apart on the scale. But it’s probably close enough over the average. Despite such fluctuations I think it’s safe to say that I have lost something like 4 pounds in the last month. A pound a week is what I think of as a safe and steady rate… now I just need to keep it up.
