It's only the beginning Fall I have already had my first cold of the year and I'm not a fan. I don't usually get sick until after Christmas, but then I get really sick. This was just a minor cold, but it slowed down my bike progress a little. It did motivate me to go and get my flu shot before that became an issue so that's good.
I think what I'm going to do this week is add in all my biking and steps, but with the knowledge that I should come in about 200 calories below budget. This way if I do splurge I can have some wiggle room with my extra calories. When I was on Weight Watchers the program encouraged you to exercise by giving you extra activity points to use on splurges and it was motivating. If I do come in under budget most days I think that could really help me start to lose weight.
Then I need to add in not going crazy when I do splurge. Once I start down the eating and drinking path it's hard to pull back. I need to remember it's not the number of days I'm on point it's the overall intake and output of calories, there is really nothing else to the equation.
