Before you read my workout update from this week, check out this post from sarc. As much as I’d love to be naturally thin, I love her mentality on this as well.
I guess I’m kind of glad I have to work for it. It makes getting it that much more awesome.
Real Quickly – My Rating Scale:
Food: Good (in calorie range – healthy foods)
Okay (in calorie range but not necessarily all healthy foods)
Bad (out of calorie range and/or lots of unhealthy foods)
Alcohol: Good (None)
Okay (a few drinks with dinner and/or friends)
Bad (too many to count)
My Fitness Pal (MFP) has me eat 1200 cal/day, and if I exercise, I get “bonus” calories to eat if I want (I usually try to eat some/most of them – the point is to keep your metabolism up and going – they’ve already built in the deficit). That’s what the over/deficit refers to after each day’s title – the “net” calories MFP wants me to eat. When I successfully lost 20# last year, this method worked very well for me. I’m hoping it does again. 🙂
Friday: 413 over (guessing)
75 min. Hot Fusion yoga class
Saturday: 280 calories over
90 min. snowboarding
Sunday: 322 calorie deficit
90 min. Hot Yoga class
Monday: 318 calorie deficit
60 min. spinning class (my first ever!)
Tuesday: 374 calories over
3 hrs Snowboarding
Wednesday: 201 calorie deficit
30 min. elliptical
Thursday: 39 calorie deficit
60 min. Hot Fusion yoga class
Overall, that’s 7 workouts and a net calorie deficit of 373.
This morning I weighed in at 165.0 – exactly the same as last week.
Normally I’m hoping to start doing rock climbing on Thursday nights, but yesterday my climbing partner was out of town so I didn’t. However, I’m pretty excited about the range of activities I have available to me here! I’m disappointed at no weight loss this week, but I’m also realistic that it’s Week 1 and my body was doing a lot of different activities and I’m just starting to get back into this. It still felt good to have a healthy week where I was conscious of what I was putting into my body!
