June was another month of living in a hotel and eating in restaurants. And between May, June, and part of July, I am pleased to say I’ve actually lost weight. Very pleased.
The biggest reason for this was because, especially once we moved to the Waikiki hotel, I walked almost everywhere. And I got addicted to walking everywhere. I don’t have a fancy toy to measure such things, but from my rudimentary calculations using Google maps, it’s safe to say I was averaging 2-3 miles a day of distance walking, not counting incidentals.
Now we’re back in the suburbs and I miss it already. So last week I went to Ross and bought some gear so I can really get into the stroller walking game around here, (since all that stuff is with HHG) although it is going to be a challenge to keep it up.
For one thing, it was easy in the hotel because there were places to go. You had to walk to go eat or to go shopping or to go to the beach. Here, I’m going to have to find destinations for us, hopefully some nice park areas where Baby G can crawl around and get her own exercise. I can’t wait till she’s big enough for playgrounds.
Also, it’s just easier to be comfortable here. As opposed to a hotel, where I HAD to leave for some part of the day so housekeeping could do their thing. We won’t talk about how much I’m missing a housekeeping service at the moment.
So, things that went well in June:
- Lots of walking
- Moderate (but still delicious) food intake
- weight loss!
- Getting more comfortable being in a swim suit in public. Not necessarily weight loss related, more of just getting over myself.
Things to work on:
- More sleep. Always need more sleep.
- Continue walking-as-exercise
- Keep eating wisely
- Keep putting on that swim suit
How were your June goals?
