Oh, Good Lord...

Monday, February 11, 2013

So, mistake of the day - tracking ALL of my foods eaten at the end of the day. I knew I wasn't within plan but "Wowsie's", nearly 1,000 calories over! Yes, ladies & gentlemen, YOU heard me right, 1,000 calories over!

I worked out this morning and burned a little over 420 calories. I skied an entire day yesterday and burned 444 calories. That is two days of work outs, leaving me tired, sore and feeling like I did something right and still it isn't enough to make up with one, just one day of carelessness.

Lesson learned my friends. You CANNOT workout enough to fix a bad diet. Tears, tears, tears.

Well, tomorrow is another day, a choice to eat the lower end of the calorie range.

I need accountability...I am sure the scale will give that to me. Sadness. emoticon

The Blizzard Challenge!

Friday, February 08, 2013

Winter blizzards top the list of legitimate excuses to stay in, sit on the couch, eat sundays, drink wine and eat popcorn all while relaxing and watching movies. These are all the things I love when even the government is warning me not to go outside.

I have the brownie sunday under my belt so far, a little cleaning and a plan to watch a movie I rented.

So what challenge, tonight I will get up every hour until I go to bed and do 50 jumping jacks, and I will jog in place for a count of 50.

Saturday I will clean my kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and the living room floor. I will also take the dog for a walk and try to get a friend to go out sledding with me:)

Sunday I will ski.

Bring it on Mother Nature:)

Mini Goals - Week 2

Monday, February 04, 2013

So this mini goal thing really worked for me last week. I think if I set true mini goals rather then these reach goals I will be even more likely to be successful. So here they are:

Workout 5 days this week - (3) 30 minute workouts and (2) 1 hour workouts

4 days of 1200 calories or less and 3 days of 1500 calories or less.

Monday - 1370 calories eaten - 30 minute workout

    It makes so much sense to break it down like this. We can do anything for a week, right?
