Day 5 Tracking - Within Range!

Saturday, February 11, 2012

Came in a bit within range last night, woohoo! :) I definitely think I'm getting the hang of this again.

Today will be my first splurge meal since starting getting very serious again about tracking, and I'm not gonna lie - I'm excited. I forgot how much being strict helped me appreciate those moments and keep them limited. If I know I will be focusing the splurge towards one meal, I can be very strong the rest of the time and I honestly think I'm not going to go CRAZY with my splurge meal either, because I'm feeling so good. I've been getting on the scale everyday, too, and it's giving me good previews for what to expect come Monday.

Well I have a church meeting to head to, and after that the splurge meal with the DH and some friends of his from work - a brunch at an irish pub! :)

Day 4 Tracking - Rockin and rollin!

Friday, February 10, 2012

Starting to feel that up-spiral feeling :)

Yesterday I was over range by 10 calories - again because I mis-remembered something. This time it was the amount of calories in something I regularly eat - I thought it was 170 cal but it's 190 cal. BUT - I thought I was 10 under, instead I was 10 over. Not too shabby!

I'm also drinking more water, but haven't been tracking that yet. Guess that's the next think to add.

Yesterday I got moving with a 4 mile run (549 calorie burn) and ST. I have about 750 calories left to burn this week and I think I'll easily be able to cover that this weekend even if I don't hoop today.

My run went well and my heel is feeling really good, so I'm planning on trying to participate in the 12athon Sunday - not doing the full 12 miles, but one of the bonus challenges that has a cheat in it. The "Rosie Ruiz" - run 4 miles, get a ride for 4 miles, run 4 more miles... extra bonus points for the ride being public transportation. If you don't know who Rosie Ruiz is, google it - you'll get a laugh!

I also did ST AND our taxes. GO ME! I also added some other goals to my "Other Goals" tracker for me to track to help me get this positive mojo going in all areas.

Anyway, for right now it's time to get to work!!!!

Day 3 Tracking - WOOHOO!

Thursday, February 09, 2012

Under by 110! Amazing!

But I gotta come clean - I didn't do any exercise Tuesday OR Wednesday! ack! I definitely gotta get moving sometime today - which should be a piece of cake because I have no work today so I have alllll day to work that out. ST AND cardio since I'm behind. And the cardio will almost definitely be a run since I haven't run in a bit either.

    Great job tracking... and no worries on the exercise... you can't flip a switch and do everything "right" overnight... just make the commitment to move for 30 minutes and I'll bet you go farther!

Day 2 Tracking -close!

Wednesday, February 08, 2012

I didn't look at the numbers before eating dinner and remembered it about 100cal off so I went about 100 cal over. whoops! But I still think that's pretty awesome considering what a reduction this new range is over what I was doing before.

Played trombone for like 2hrs straight on Monday night and didn't track that activity either... so bonus. I wanna go run before work but kind of don't. I think if I have to stay on hold any longer I'm gonna run out of time.

(Trying to resolve something with the insurance company -gugguuguugghh)

Day 1 Tracking - SUCCESS!

Tuesday, February 07, 2012

So I'm calling it a success even though TECHNICALLY I was over by 5 calories I think... but then again this is all just estimating anyway. Even if we measure things a margin of error of 5 calories, I'm calling a win!

Worked at the gym this morning. So early. So quiet. hahaha. My first day doing the front desk duty on my own and it was smooooth sailing. I even rang up a sale for a guest pass. Huzzah! No ST today, and I burned some bonus calories yesterday so I have kind of a free pass for today if I choose to take it. Right now I'm tired from trombone choir late last night and then early morning gym shift, but after some rest and maybe an actual nap we'll see - I might end up hula hooping. :)

I think I'm going to aim for 15 miles this week? We'll see. 10-15. All assuming foot continues to feel good. I had a good 3 miler yesterday (how I got my bonus calorie burn!).

    You got a job at the gym??? That is so awesome!! Did it come with a free membership, I hope?

Don't sweat the 5 calories. You'd have to be over by 5 calories for 700 days in order to gain a pound! :D
