January successes and disappointments
Thursday, February 02, 2012
January was a month of highs and lows. After a very rough December--grieving the loss of my husband took a huge emotional and physical toll--I committed to consistent exercise. I don't know how much weight I gained over the holidays, but from my last weigh-in on December 3 to my most recent on January 31, I gained five pounds. That's disappointing after my hard work in January. I used Leslie Sansone's Walk at Home DVDs and walked 20 out of 31 days, and logged 61.5 miles and 925 minutes. I feel good, though. I have more endurance and strength for my day-to-day activities. I stand taller and feel more confident. I hope February is even better, and although I don't have much weight to lose, I hope results show up on the scale at the end of the month.
