Last week can be summarized with one expression – “Back on Track, Baby!” Here’s a little recap of last week, in case you missed any of the action:
Sunday: I like to call this the calm before the week of super physical activity that lies ahead. I was within my calories and ready to rock the week.
Monday: I went to a “new to me” gym in my little town and attended 3 group fitness classes: Zumba (50 minutes), CardioBlast (a type of circuit/interval class that was 55 minutes), and a Kettlebell class (55 minutes ending with a 15 minute super intense ab workout – awesome). I had 824 calories left over at the end of the day after eating back some of my exercise calories.
Tuesday: I did an hour of Body Pump and 45 minutes of Zumba. I had 430 calories surplus.
Wednesday: “C” and I went on our first run together in months (6.36 miles) – so.much.fun! I was perfect with my calories (4 calorie surplus).
Thursday: Rest day! Woo Hoo since I was pretty sore from all of the activity earlier in the week. I was 200 calories over my goal – really disappointing, dang that last minute poor decision to have dessert with dinner (but the small slice of Pecan pie was delicious).
Friday: Another rest day! And date night with my awesome husband! I ended up being 400 calories over my daily goal, but I’m considering this a HUGE victory. We went to Flat Top Grill and I made healthy choices. It was the first time I was truly stuffed since I began this MPF tracking – but I was stuffed on healthy veggies.
Saturday: Body Pump (60 minutes) & Zumba (45 minutes). I ended up being 600 calories over my goal – not great, but I had a night out with my gal pals! I opted to bring 3 SkinnyTaste recipes to the party so that I could ensure there were healthier options that I knew the calorie content of. I wish I had stayed more within my calorie limit though. Dang wine!
Sunday: 6.3 mile run (including 70 continuous minutes of running – a super accomplishment for me). I was perfect with my calories today (a small surplus of 4).
Total miles run: 12.6
Total minutes exercised: 548 (according to MFP)
Total calories burned: 5697 (according to MFP)
