The Power of Little

The Power of Little

Thinking about having one cookie for dinner?  Why not?  It’s just one cookie.  Mmmmm!  That was delicious.  Let’s turn on ESPN and watch Sports Center.  Why not get another cookie or two or six?

I’ve attached an article below that shows the power of cutting just one hundred calories from your diet per day.  A typical cookie is at least one hundred calories, if not more.  Cutting one cookie a day will equal losing ten pounds per year.  Easy, huh?

When I lived in Korea, I noticed that villagers walked in the mornings and in the evenings.  They strolled without hurry.  It was their constitutionals, “a regular walk taken as a form of exercise” as defined by the Free Dictionary.

What if you simply walked around the block before you got into your automobile in the mornings prior to your jetting off to work?  What if you walked around the block after dinner?  Those eight blocks of walking will burn more than one hundred calories per day.

Hmmmm?

Cut one hundred calories per day, and that will equal the loss of ten pounds per year.  Then, walk around the block twice per day to burn at least another hundred calories per day.  According to my math, that’s the equivalent of losing at least twenty pounds per year!!!

Droping weight doesn’t have to be onerous.  It’s the little things done consistently that will make your pants fit looser.

Consistency, not intensity!

God bless you,

Chip

  1. Chip–My 19-year old very strong wrestler loves Western swing dancing. He even took his hobby to Ireland over spring break and taught it to the Irish in a pub on St. Patrick’s Day. I told him that I want to lose enough weight that he would be able to “flip” me. I think that is a good goal. I am automatically cutting calories because I am excited and motivated due to my “constitutionals.” Still taking them in the snow some days, but soon, the weather will be a help. Thanks again.
