I am quite proud of myself today. Here's a list of my accomplishments:
-started and stuck with counting calories on my Kindle Fire LoseIt! app, including dinner... -including- the fries from McDonald's I ate (about 1/3 of a small order).
-worked out on the elliptical at lunch. Burnt 250 calories (slightly skeptical that it was actually that high, but as I have no other way of measuring, I'm takin' it!)
-started Week 2 of Couch to 5K training. As I only did 2 days last week, it was tiring and challenging but I did it. Burnt 225 calories on the treadmill doing 30 minutes of training.
-did arm and ab exercises at home, as per the workout schedule I wrote up for myself last night for the week
-made a bunch of veggies, roasted in oven. burnt them slightly but I'll suffer through it. Cauliflower, onion, red pepper, and zucchini. Yum. About 2 cups total to have with lunch.
Today my total intake of calories was about 1,300 but I expelled about 590 (also took a 45 minute walk with my class today that burnt about 120 calories) so my net calories for the day are about 700. I also kept up with my water despite not having my water jug at work today; drank about 60 ounces.
I'm really proud of myself for grabbing the bull by the horns today and just doing what I know needed to be done. Even with the fries from McDonald's, I had a pretty healthy day and I am nice and full for bedtime. I know if I keep up this momentum I'll definitely start losing the way I want to and get myself ready for my 5k in October!
I'm off to read and then hit the hay... night night all.
