Motivation is low but ate pretty healthy

Sunday, December 16, 2012

I tried to reevaluate how my work outs went last week. I burned 1000 calories (go me!) and started to eat more healthy. I tried to switch out my very high sugar yoplait yogurt with my no sugar Greek Yogurt Okios and no matter what I mixed with it, I could not stomach it. I would say Greek Yogurt is officially the worst thing I have ever eaten.

I am going to go walking outside once a week (whatever day is the warmest) and I would like to get away from the tredmill a little more, but the fact that it keeps track of my progress is too awesome to give up. I'm thinking half treadmill and half bike? I use the circuit strength training to finish up the rest of the hour I have left at the gym after the cardio.

Then I do one spark video a day...even though it's not an entire body work out.

Things I want to improve on this week...

Brainstorm new cardio ideas
premake snacks so even laziness doesn't stop me from healthy snacking
I would like to increase my calorie burning by 10 calories every day...that will make burning 70 more calories a week seem like a breeze and hardly noticeable.

    I make my own Greek yogurt. It is easy but you still might like the taste. I really can't taste it so much, it is mostly just a delivery system for my blueberries :)

Thanks for sharing!

    I am not a big fan of greek yogurt either. Especially the plain kind. I think it is gross too. My husband, being Greek, loves it but I get either yoplait or dannon and just get the low calorie kind with fruit. Much better that way. Keep on pushing for more calories being burned, looks like you are off to a fantastic start. I friended you as well!~ emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Have you tried any of the 0% fat flavoured Greek Yogurts? Liberte brand has some really good tasting ones on the market, but may be a Canadian product.. but I'm sure there are lots of other brands out there. The one I have now only has 140 calories for a 3/4 cup (175 gram) serving and packs and has 15 grams of protein. I eat around 100 grams at a time to cut the calories.

Your exercise sounds good and varied, keep up the good work and you'll soon see progress!. I walk every day with the dogs, ride my stationary bike every other day and practice yoga also.
