Make Changes to See Changes

It's been three weeks since I started my HealthyWage challenge and I am starting to see my weight-loss slow significantly. I knew this would happen. After all, I'm not doing anything different to cause a different result.

For the first two weeks, keeping track of my calories and staying within my calorie range {for the most part} was enough to provide an 8 pound loss on the scale. Now, if I want to see more weight lost, I need to add something more to my routine. I need to make changes to see changes.

I need to start exercising consistently!

Initially, I had planned to incorporate exercise in to my routine in week two or three but, I didn't.  Now that week three is coming to an end, I am starting to get antsy about it. 

I really wanted to add exercise to my routine this week but, I ended up injuring my knees in an accident I had this past Sunday. I am fine, it just took practically the whole week to recover.

I feel like I'm ready to start walking on the treadmill anytime now. To start, I am going to wake up at 6 a.m. 2 - 3 times next week, and hope to get 30 minutes in on the treadmill before Piper wakes up for the day. 

I am going to take it slow with my exercise routine and build it up over time, either by increasing the speed, or increasing the incline. I might even add some yoga or something different as the weeks go on. The key for me is to exercise consistently but change it up a bit over time.

I am excited to take this challenge to the next level and hopefully see the scale start to drop some more, soon. My third weigh-in for the challenge is tomorrow morning. I will share the results with you on Monday. Until then, have a nice long weekend!
