Week of January 22, 2012
Sunday – If I told you that I was 703 calories below my daily allotment (which is based on the goal of losing 1 pound per week) – would you give me a high 5? Hands up – I kicked calorie counting booty – BOOYAH!
Monday – What can I say – I pretty much missed the mark with this – I went over my daily allotment by 327 calories (sigh) – it’s a journey and although I am not perfect, I certainly am healthifying my diet and being more mindful. I’m doing better and know that I have a LONG way to go.
Tuesday – Oh yes, yes I did a 2 for Tuesday doubling up workout – body pump and zumba (though, a much lower energy class than I attend on Saturdays –kind of felt almost like a waste of time but I know any movement is better than none so . . . ); was 500 calories below my daily allotment – Boom goes the dynamite!
Wednesday – On this day, I am not feeling very sore after having done my 2 for Tuesday yesterday (kind of shocking since following Saturday’s classes I’m sore for 4 days) also, I was 12 calories under my daily allotment (how’s that for toeing the line?? Ha!)
Thursday – I went out to eat with my friends and our dinner which included a martini (a-maz-ing!) put me way over my daily caloric allotment for the day.
Friday – I ate leftovers from the previous night’s dinner out and . . . .went over my daily caloric allotment (sigh).
Saturday – Double up day at the gym – an hour of body pump, 45 minutes of a higher than average Zumba class, that combined with an uber healthy lunch (less than nutritious dinner) and add in a full day of shopping with your mom and you have a fantastic day . . . one that was at least 274 calories under budget (finally)
Sunday – I would prefer to skip discussing this, but this weekly recap is about confronting the truth – I was 500 calories over, don’t ask –it wasn’t pretty.
And because of my less than diligent adherence to my daily calories, today I weigh the same as I did 2 weeks ago – back on track – this next week.
How was your week: thumbs up or thumbs down?
