What are you doing to lose it?

We've been doing Move It and Lose It for about a month now, and everyone participating has lost weight! I'm so proud! And let me tell you, it's quite a motivator to know I have to put my weight up for everyone on Fridays. I've already lost 6 pounds!

Because I work at home, I manage to stay VERY sedentary. I sit at the computer, get up for lunch, eat at the computer, and now I get up to get Caleb. But mostly I'm sitting at my computer all day, without even the walk from my house to the car, or the walk from the parking lot to the building. VERY sedentary. So for the weight loss challenge, I have committed to being outside any time it's over 60 degrees. Which will probably be most every day from here on out. Caleb and I go to the park after work, and it's a lot of fun. And ANYthing is more activity than I've been doing, and my body appreciates it!

What are YOU doing for Move It and Lose It? Even if you're not participating, what do you do to stay active?


  1. I love the idea of just making time to be outside...that is one of my goals for this year! I find that I move a lot more and generally feel more energized by spending some time outdoors each day.

  2. Well, I've been avoiding this post because I haven't really been losing very well. One week I do good on eating, the next week I do well on exercising, and I just haven't put the two together for a real benefit. I am using summer fun/swimsuit time as my new inspiration since I guess posting my weight for the world to see isn't working. :-P

    But yes, getting outside and walking with the stroller, going to the park is primarily what I do. But the rainy weather throws that off. And I know it's going to be unbearably hot soon, so I need an indoor option as well.

    Currently I am toying with the idea of joining the Y, because, well, they have childcare. And a swimming pool.
