Only 202? Really?

Friday, March 01, 2013

I just finished doing 4 different videos here on SP... and I've only burned 202 calories! BooHoo!
Oh, well, I just tried out four new (to me) videos that will give me different options for when I'm bored!

I did a 10 minute lower body workout that turned out to be Day 5 of the Seven Day Bootcamp videos.
I then did the 6 minute butt blaster! ow.
Followed by the 9 minute seated arm and shoulder dumbell workout. (I've been slacking on my strength training days)
Finished up by the 20 Minute Fat Blasting Cardio Sculpt workout.

45 minute workout altogether. Not bad! Wish I had gotten in some walking today, but I didn't.

Stayed within or under my ranges today.
Cereal with fruit for breakfast. Beef stew with veggies for lunch. Apple for a snack. Mashed potatos, pork-turkey sausage, and pears for dinner.
I had mini-marshmallows for dessert, though. A whole cup of them.

I think I need to go find that "Tame your sweet tooth" challenge or team. I know I don't need a treat every day. I know it, but I still find myself searching for one.
And unfortunately... It's girl scout cookie season.... and my dad just put oreos on the grocery shopping list... and my birthday is in 8 days, so I know my Mom will want to bake me a treat.

But these all sound like excuses... probably because they are! I'm going to go look into taming my sweet tooth, and then hopefully I will be able to work on restraining myself and improving my willpower.

But at least I got in 45 minutes of exercise instead of none. And I got in some strength training exercises today instead of just another day of cardio.

#streakingintospring Day 1 completed!

    I know exactly what you mean about being surprised (and not so pleased!) to find out the number of calories burned by some of the activities I do. It sure puts into perspective how much MORE has to be done to burn off the calories in a single extra cookie! But then it also solves the "mystery" of all those years wondering how I could possibly not lose weight...guess knowledge really IS power!

For the sweet tooth craving, you might try what a good SP friend suggested to me. Figure out when the "sweet" thing usually strikes (mine is between lunch and dinner) and put a little of the sweet in the meal before that (so for me, it's at lunch). It's such a simple tweak, but it's really helped me.

Your successes have been amazing, Julianne, and I do thank you for sharing both the successes and the challenges - both are inspiring.

    Yay #streakintospring! :)

I don't really have a sweet tooth - except for chocolate! And I'm mildly allergic to chocolate, so I really ought to give it up...

    I'm doing the #streakingtospring too! 45 minutes of fitness is super! Calories burned is just a number. Kinda like the scale. The feeling of getting up and doing something is priceless. Sounds like you had an amazing day. Actually inspiring to me. Good luck to both of us in this challenge :)

Great job! I need to focus on getting more strength training in myself instead of just cardio.
