Activity? It works. Who'd have guessed
My weigh-in went well and I was really happy when I realized I lost another 2.8 pounds which is awesome though slightly unexpected. I knew I'd lost weight but I wasn't sure how the scale would react. Especially with the increased activity I worried that it would register a gain due to muscle. Luckily, I suppose, it didn't though I can feel in my legs the difference that the walking has made.
I also wanted to mention that about a month ago I went to the New Balance store and they measured my feet and I got new shoes. Initially I didn't like them because they were a little bigger than I'd normally buy however, after having walked in them for a few weeks now I have to say these were a good investment. Prior to getting the new shoes I'd been having some problems with pain across the top of my foot. I wasn't sure if it was because of all the walking that I'd started doing but then my knees started to hurt too and I wanted to take care of that before it got really bad. So, I made the trip to the NB store. The shoes were expensive but my feet and knees are feeling really good so that is awesome. The reason I mention this is that if you're going to increase your activity - make sure you have the right gear.
Do you have any special gear that you absolutely cannot live without?
