Alright, to recap the week since my last blog, I've been doing okay. Nutritionally, I've scored like this:
01/06 - 2072
01/07 - DID NOT TRACK - Started to but then Paul to me to his Grandmothers house for the day. Lots of baked goods and an awesome dinner. All enjoyed in blessed ignorance.
01/08 - 2326
01/09 - 2145
01/10 - 1971
01/11 - 1686
My fruit/veggie and water goals have been mostly met. Five out of six days for F/V and four out of six days for water. I have GOT to get better at hydrating.
On the plus side, last Thursday I went back to the gym. I went for a short walk on Friday, I took a "rest" day on Saturday because I was still VERY sore from Thursday. On Sunday, I went for a run. Monday, I did Mommy bootcamp. Tuesday and Wednesday were run days. In short, Spark's given me the warning about my calories two weeks in a row. I'm going to wait two more week's before I adjust the "calories out". That way I'll have an average that is an actual average not just wishful thinking.
I promise three things today: I *will* continue to blog at LEAST every other day. I *will* lose at least half a pound on my next weigh in. I *will* hit my goals for F/V and water every day until January 31.

2,068 Calories burned today, broken down like this:
I don't know why I didn't think of saving that picture and copy/pasting it before... that was SO easy!
I drank my water, ate my fruits and veggies and (prepare yourself for floods and locusts) went to the gym. I took an hour long BodyPump class and then, at the encouragement of my friend, the 30 minute Awesome Abs class. Sherri's the instructor. I'm always on the fence about how much I enjoy having the teacher know me. Sure, I get personalized encouragement but you sure do get encouraged a lot when they know you by name.
Tomorrow morning is BodyVive. It's a new class so I'm interested in knowing what it's all about.

Let's start with the good news. In the past three days I've run 10+ kms in three short runs. On Monday, I started with a trip out with the "Freshmen" AKA the Learn to Run group. These are the ones that have NEVER run before or have but haven't in a very long time. When we got back to the Running Room, I noticed that the "Sophmores", AKA the Learn to Run 10km group, was heading out for their first night's run. So I went with them, too. Tonight, I ran with my half marathon group, the "Juniors". I feel so good right now. Aside from a pain in my shin/calf that has now gone "poof" mentally and physically, tonight's run ROCKED!
Next goal, 5 servings of fruits & veggies - Done & Done
Third goal , 3 bottles of water (1950 mL of water) - Done & Done
Finally, I wanted to keep my percentages at 50% carbs, 20% protein and 30 % fat. On Monday, I consumed 2,814 calories. (52.5/16.6/30.9) Did NOT meet the goal. Today, Tuesday, I consumed 1,846. Better intake for sure but the percentages were 55.7/20.3/24). My big concern is the amount of sodium. That will be added to tomorrow's goals.

Ok, first a confession, I totally dropped the two challenges that I joined yesterday. For a few reasons. Mostly because, even though they're only asking me to commit 10 minutes, sometimes 10 minutes is hard to find in the day and I don't want to feel guilty about failing. I have to many other things to think about.
Alright, now that that's out of the way. I still am not sure how many calories I'm meant to consume. I'm pretty sure the ice cream cake & chocolate covered pretzels should not have been. Consumed, that is. Yesterday, my total was 2033 (58.4% carbs, 10.7% protein, 30% fat) Today, I'm working towards the recommended of 50% carbs, 20% protein. If I keep the fat intake to 30%, I'm doing okay.
I fell short of my "3 bottles" of water goal by one bottle. This means that I consumed 1300 mL. Not bad, just not ideal.
Exercise did not happen. I have a list as long as my arm as to why... it all boils down to "I don't wanna". Today will be a better day. I need to go get bus passes for the boys so I will walk to the 7-11 for that. I'll also be crashing/pacing the LTR clinic tonight so that'll get me a few calories burned, too. Tomorrow, I was thinking of hitting the gym. Maybe. We'll see. It's also weigh-in day. Hopefully, the gods are good to me as I did little to earn it.
ETA: I *did* have five servings of freggies
