Day 33 Accountability

Sunday, February 05, 2012

Sunday --

emoticon1 - Exercise - 30-minute walk with the dogs.
emoticon emoticon2 - Calories - 2249. Attended a Super Bowl party. Did my best at making sensible choices -- turkey instead of bratwurst; veggies instead of chips. I'm guesstimating my calories today, since I don't know what was in some of the recipes. I ate some rich dips with those veggies and enjoyed desserts.
emoticon3 - Water - 9 cups.
emoticon4 - Sleep - 8 hours.
emoticon5 - Freggies - 1 fruit, 5 veggies.

    Great job with setting realistic goals as you train for the triathlon. I am glad you made the best choices possible at the super bowl party and still had fun emoticon

    WE all need to treat ourselves to goodies sometimes or we would lose interest in watching 99% of the time.Onr day of indulgence shouldn't ruin the week.

    Looks like a great day to me! I hope you enjoyed the party; I think you did great there and it wasn't "mindless" "I'll start tomorrow" attitude! It was " I can enjoy today in a healthier way". WTG!

    You're awesome! I'm like you, I track the best I can, no matter what! At this point I prefer to know how many calories I'm taking in, whether the count is too high or not. I learn a lot this way.
And the fun thing with the super bowl is that it doesn't happen everyday! Did you have fun today? That's all that matters really!

Day 32 Accountability

Sunday, February 05, 2012

Saturday --

emoticon1 - Exercise - planned day of rest, but I ran 4 miles in 45 minutes to make up for my unplanned day of rest on Friday.
emoticon2 - Calories - 1995. I'm totally guessing at calories for Saturday. We ate out. The restaurant doesn't have a nutrition menu. I tried to guess high rather than low. I burned 480 calories in my run today, so I'm OK with being over a little bit.
emoticon3 - Water - 9 cups.
emoticon4 - Sleep - 8 hours.
emoticon5 - Freggies - 1 fruit, 2.5 veggies. Ooops, didn't realize I was that low on veggies! No wonder the calories were high today.

Day 31 Accountability

Saturday, February 04, 2012

Friday --

Friday is weigh-in day for my Spark team. I weighed in at 156.2 - I think that's 5 pounds gone since I started this accoutability blog 31 days ago. WOOT!

emoticon1 - Exercise - unplanned day of rest, but I'll make up for it this weekend. I usually don't plan exercise on the weekends. I exercised 165 minutes on Thursday, and I was just too spent to get up early Friday morning and do it again, I did participate in the team's push-up challenge on Friday. I completed 30 girlie push-ups in 2 minutes!
emoticon2 - Calories - 1831. That extra fruit put me over, but that's OK. It wasn't junk calories.
emoticon3 - Water - 9 cups.
emoticon4 - Sleep - 6.5 hours.
emoticon5 - Freggies - 2 fruit, 5 veggies.

    You are doing so great; but I agree. Not getting your sleep can sabotage your other efforts. Hope you sleep well tonight. Hugs.

    Darling, you are going to have to sleep more than that if you're going to workout so much. I'm so proud of you for what you're doing, but be careful not to burn out! You need and deserve a good night sleep every night!
Congrats on your awesome workouts!
