Sunday, the day of rest

The way I've scheduled out my exercise, Sunday is the only day I have nothing to do. I do 6-kilometer walks during the week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, which is when I also work on pushups and pullups (to be clear, "work on" means "build up to"; I haven't done any real pushups or pullups yet, and I won't for months); on Tuesdays and Thursdays, I do stair work (currently five floors, which is still tiring because I'm probably still dealing with lingering atrophy, not to mention not having done serious stair work for years even before the stroke) as well as core work. On Saturday, I do a long walk. So today is a day of rest.

Despite yesterday's sweaty walk, I'm still hovering in the 118/119-kilogram zone, but with this new regime, I expect next week's numbers to be somewhat different. This much of a calorie deficit has to result in weight loss, right?

Having a day of rest is good, to allow the body to recover.

And I expect that some weight loss will follow. Maybe you're body just needs a little time to get into the groove.
