Just count your food and see what you come up with, stairclimbing etc, is bonus.
This. I look at it this way: Even if I wasn't on this lifestyle change, I would have had to go up those stairs anyways to do laundry or whatever, its just a bonus.
Now, if I'm setting aside 10 mins to go up and down the stairs over and over and over again, that would be a work out to me, lol...
Don't make it so hard for yourself. Just keep going.
