Logging accomplished. The logging of food, water, and exercise has become a regular habit. I’ve done much better with drinking cold water, even on the weekend and this week I made my exercise goal of more than 180 minutes…but one week of success doesn’t make it a habit. It is a great feeling to wipe out all the calories consumed at breakfast through exercise. It’s like getting a free meal!

While I’m working on making exercise a regular part of my routine, I’m going to add a simple change this week…one that sounds more than a little bit crazy. I’m back to The 4-Hour Body and Ferriss’ claim that ice baths or cold showers significantly increase weight loss. This type of ice therapy is not an option. I could never tolerated this type of torture. However, the good news according to Ferriss…placing an ice pack on the back of your neck for 30 minutes each evening is an easier way to obtain results. In fact, he claims the ice pack method provides 80% of the results obtained by the more extreme method of sitting in a tub of ice water. I’m going to give the ice pack method a try. After all, it’s another cheap, easy change I can make.

I’ve earned The Exercise Buff Badge on Lose It – exercised at least 3 times a week for at least 2 weeks and lost another pound…staying motivated!LoseItlogo
