The Trudge Report


Results you can see.  It’s hard to notice a change when you see yourself every day. But,that Fall ritual of new school pictures is proof that trudging has been worth the effort at last!






Exercise Log – aka Keeping Jacquie On Track!

How did I get motivated?  Read all about it at: Exercise – Duh!!

MONTH:  MAY 2010

Up to 5 miles a day – 4 or 5 days a week.  Yay Me!!

I’ve discovered a great way to keep motivated.  Instead of writing about my progress here – I have started a food and exercise journal using an online application.  It sets a daily weight loss calorie count based on my current age and weight.  I just plug in the food I eat and it keeps track so I know if I am under or over.  The best part?   When I plug in my 60 minutes of daily walking, I get to eat 400+ change in additional calories.  It’s a great visual of the “calories in, calories out” rule that we all know about.  Somehow, having an online calculator to adjust the numbers right in front of my face, really helps to keep me motivated.  Since I started using it, I have lost 4 pounds.

I will probably not blog on this topic anymore.  If I do – it will be over at the Everyday Health page – The Trudge Report:
