Day 7 - Biggest Loser Workout and the running blues
Calories Out 2664
Calories In 1719
Calorie Deficit 945
Today was great. I felt a bit more tempted today and had to do a lot of "mental" work to keep from messing up! But I did it.
I passed on the usual fast food breakfast that is brought to Sunday School. Yippee!
I ate my usual snack at 10:00, a good lunch at noon, snack at 3 and dinner around 6:00. Didn't eat out today. In checking my calorie burn this evening I still had almost 500 calories left to get to my goal so I got out Biggest Loser workout DVDs i had just gotten. Did a 2 mile walk for 30 minutes and a 25 minute Cardio Max Weight-Loss workout. I am really out of shape!!
It is weird that my calorie burn was so much higher yesterday considering I did not exercise at all. You would think the burn would be more today. My steps were more today of course. But at any rate, if I have lost weight tomorrow when I weigh I won't worry about it.
ha ha.. I just check my bodybugg again and I burned 14 calories while writing this blog. By the time I go to bed my calorie burn for today will be more I am sure. Maybe I should load my stats in the morning that way I will get the whole day's worth on there. Because I know I will keep burning calories after I type this and until I go to bed, and a few while sleeping .
As I am sitting here writing this, my stomach is starting to growl!?!? How in the world could I be hungry. I might need to eat something else. I have room to do so with a 900 calorie deficit.
I may start updating in the morning time to get a more accurate account. :)
I really need to get back out there with my running. I have not run since the first week of May! I have promised to run a 5K with my son on July 4th and it will be tough and hot, especially if I don't start running some! I am not really motivated to run but I know how great it makes me feel. When we went out to eat last night we went to a restaurant that is on one of our most traveled running routes and as i looked at the road I realized....I miss my running. I really do. I have got to get back out there. It's hard starting but I feel so good after a few miles of running. I guess I need to learn to enjoy running by myself since I have no one to run with. I will just have to suck it up and get out there!! But if I think about HOW GOOD it makes me feel afterwards, that will make it easier to get out there.
I thought about getting a bigger dog to have someone to run with but after bathing one small dog and one medium dog today....I don't think I can handle a big dog!!
Am I nervous about my weight in tomorrow??
No, of course not!!
I hope I have something good to report. If not, I will report anyway, because that's the kind of girl I am. Lying or not letting you guys know how I am really doing won't help me at all. I plan to report the good, the bad, and the ugly. So get ready people!
MAKE it a great day!
