Here's was my thinking:
- I did 15 min. of cardio so those 2 glasses of wine won't matter
- I walked 1 mile on the track so that will cancel out those 6 oreo cookies
- I strength-trained for 30 min. so that will cancel out that cinnamon roll
To lose weight, I mean really lose weight, I have to include exercise. Otherwise, I lose a pound or two here and there, a few inches, and that's about it. I won't have significant weight loss. I'm aware that some people can lose weight without exercise, but not me. I don't know how they do it, but they do.
For me, exercise has become apart of my identity. I have to do it. It helps to get me going, and in the long run it will be beneficial to me.
