It takes twenty-one days for the
mind and body to create a new habit.--- Checklist for Life for Women
I must have created a habit because here it is the 8th of August and I'm still walking! One thing seemed a little strange to me, however. It looks like I would have lost weight, but I weighed exactly the same as when I started?
30 minutes brisk walking = 300 calories burned-- Roizen and Oz, You on a Diet
How could I burn an extra 300 calories a day and still not lose weight? I had to admit to myself that I was eating like it was still the 4th of July! Time to make a change!
My Healthy August challenge is to follow a portion control diet the five weeks of August. I have been writing down everything I have eaten and have been eating LOTS of vegetables. Maybe I'll create another habit! I'll let you know how it goes at the end of August.
Hope you are having a healthy August, too!
PS: Read about other people who are starting a diet in August.
