The extra energy I experienced also made a big difference. For the first time since starting on this journey I was able to get over 10,000 steps 5 out of 7 days. This was quite the accomplishment for me, before I never had the energy to achieve quite this many steps in one day. Some of this new found enthusiasm for exercise may have also come from moving my exercise routine to the evenings. But, whatever it was this combination seems to have done the trick. I am now achieving 20-30 minutes each time and not just the 15 minutes I set out to do. So here’s to continued success with my weigh in’s and maintaining the 10,000 steps each day.
I did jump on the scales a few days in a row after doing the “Dump the Junk” and my weight had fluctuated but, I was still excited because I feel like I have lost weight and have the needed energy to push along.
