The second week is complete. I did very well until yesterday. This second week was a little easier as I got into the swing of exercising. I did take two day off.
So how did I do? Let’s take a look.
During the second week, I walked a total of 29.66 miles and averaged 4.06 miles per day. This chart was created by Runtastic which is a great way to use your iPhone GPS to calculate your walking distance. I took Saturday and Sunday off.
Above is another depiction of the exercise from the Fitbit dashboard. I use a Fitbit Surge to measure my steps. I will post a review of the Surge after 1-2 months using it.
So how much weight have I lost. Since the first week I have lost a total of 5.2 pounds but only 1.1 pounds this week. This a difficult period to keep motivation because in week 2 I had a large, high salt meal one day and that added some water weight.
So how did I complete week two successfully. I made sure I had plenty of water and fiber to keep me full. I averaged 90-128 ounces of water and 30-41 grams of fiber. I ate 3-4 meals per day and averaged 1500 Kcal per day but I could use more protein. I am going to add chicken this week. I will post my recipe. I am using Loseit.com to track my calories. I highly recommend it.
I cut out some of the simple sugar this week. I have tried to avoid candy. The high salt barbecue that I had yesterday was tough because it was at an all-you-can eat function for work. I did only have one serving but it is hard to eat at a function where the food smells so good. I was weak and gave in but instead of dwelling on it and giving up, I will get right back on the wagon.
