Friday Fitness: February Wrap-up

It has been a whole month since I weighed myself.  We don’t have a scale here.  And it feels both odd and liberating.  I just have to go by how things feel and fit.

And I can report that there seems to be little change. Which is a victory, considering how much  Kona coffee ice cream, chocolate covered macadamia nuts, kahlua pork plate lunches and coconut pudding I’ve been putting away.  I never eat that kind of stuff back home… but here it’s new and exciting and… irresistible…

Nommy plate lunch! This one has Chicken Katsu, mixed Asian veggies, rice, macaroni salad and kimchee!

So it’s good to know that despite an increased calorie intake, I am staying about the same size.  Everything still fits.

And the reason for that is increased amount of walking.  According to Bitbit, my fitbit ONE, last week I logged 40 miles. That’s just walking with hubby to his work each morning, going shopping, and running errands.  When you don’t have a car, it’s easy to rack up those walking miles!

And I’ve also started doing a simple upper body routine with an 8lb dumbbell and I hang (and then unhang) laundry 3 times per week.

And while I don’t feel stronger — I still get winded walking uphill to the house, I know that I am getting stronger. And that helps make the sore feet and shoulders worth it.

    When my husband and I went to Italy .. we walked everywhere and I never gained a pound even though we ate fairly well and indulged in full fat cappuccino’s.

    Exercise can really help burn off our indulgences.
