So here are the new rules:
1. I have to slow down while and eating and properly chew my food. I've always been a really fast eater and eat after I'm full. I hope this will curb that.
2. I have to add another strength building exercise. Since I alternate everyday between my upper and lower body, I have to do an additional machine to focus on my core.
3. When I come to a flight of stairs, I have to run up it (if possible). I have no current plans to visit the Washington Monument.
I hope this helps me hit 199 by my birthday. I haven't really made any progress yet, which is so frustrating - but I am trying to stay positive.
