It's mid-May; getting closer to summer and almost half-way through the year. I thought I'd follow up on a New Year's Resolution post I wrote back in January, Consistency Counts, to see how you're coming on your goals..
If you had been jogging 2 miles a day, 3 days a week, you would have already clocked 125 miles so far this year.
The miles alone would have burned about 15,000 calories, depending on your weight.
The cool-down after each run would have burned another 15,000 calories - more or less depending on your weight & exertion.
Your body's recovery would have burned additional calories. I'm not sure how many; let's say another 15,000.
In addition, you're metabolism would have sped up, so that you'd be burning more calories throughout the day. And you would probably have been a little more conscious about what you ate, since you wouldn't want to undue what you've worked so hard to do.
Remembering that approximately 3,500 calories equals 1 lb of body weight, you could have lost 10-15 pounds already this year!
The good news is it's never too late to start. If you haven't been as productive on your goals as you'd like - there's no better time than today to move forward!
