Alright...I've been walking, drinking water...nothing. Ok, that's not true. My jeans are a *smidgeon* less snug than usual. My weight is the same, though, and the "looseness" of my clothes is not quite enough to make me feel as though I'm actually getting anything done.
I'm not measuring my water. I'm just drinking it. And drinking it and drinking it and drinking it. Coffee or tea in the morning before work, water the entire rest of the day, sometimes a glass of milk with dinner. I'm pretty sure I'm getting at least the recommended 64 oz of water each day.
I'm walking. A lot. I take three 10 minute breaks throughout my workday, and I walk "briskly" for all three of them. And then I cap them off by taking the stairs back up to the 4th floor every time. I'm also walking for 30 minutes on my lunch break, again capped off by the mountainous stair-climb back to the 4th floor.
I should be doing crunches and other strength exercises on a regular basis, but I'm not. So I guess I should make an effort to add that in. Still...cardio=weight loss and I feel like 3 10-minute bursts and one 30 minute sustained, all with stairs, should qualify as "enough cardio". Am I wrong?
I am watching what I eat. I get lots of protein, not a lot of fat, and puh-lenty of veggie/fruit. I'm not going to say I never eat crap, but I don't eat a lot of crap, and I've cut my soda intake from (seriously) a gallon of Coke a day down to approximately 24-32 oz a week. (Weekends. It's better than beer, anyway. I think. I don't know...I don't like beer.)
AND - I'll admit I've only been really, really working it for about 3 weeks. Still...wouldn't you think that 3 weeks is enough time to see the numbers change?
