Yesterday I did a great job getting back on track. My husband and I walked a 5k together, I do love our walks. It is a great stress reliever and allows us some time alone. My widowed daughter and two granddaughters are living with us and time alone does require some planning. I did better with my choices yesterday. My Loseit! app on my iPhone says that 1-1/2 hrs of housecleaning is equal to 267 calories burned! I never thought of housework as being exercise but I guess it is. It also states that 30 minutes of vacuuming burns 111 calories! So now cleaning house is my own little personal workout!
p.s. I haven't been eating much veggies since being banded, concentrating on getting the protein instead. Today I tried to eat some Birdseye Steamed Veggies in a bag..there was some carrots, water chestnuts and broccoli. The broccoli got stuck even though I took my time and really chewed it. Does anyone else have trouble with it after being banded?
