I've changed a couple of things during the past two weeks. The first is that I'm trying to jog more often. The goal is to jog 6 days a week (5+ km per bout). Also, I've drastically reduced my weekday carb intake. I'm sticking with salad and tuna or, in yesterday's case, a restaurant-bought chicken caesar salad.
I haven't weighed myself since before Golden Week (the last time I went to the gym), but I'm sure I've lost at least 2 kg. My pants are feeling looser every day. I woke up this morning with a positive attitude that I haven't been able to shake and I realized today that I haven't experienced any knee pain — not even a twinge when climbing stairs — in over a week.
