Day 10, 11, and 12

Saturday, May 04, 2013

So, I went to the gym Thursday, even though I didn't want to. It was cold, I was cold, so I decided I would sit in the sauna a bit to warm up, stretch, and listen to some tunes to get myself pumped up. Did that, felt better, got to the free weight section in the gym determined to kick some a$$, pretty proud of myself for mind-over-mattering it.

I went and claimed a space, gathered up my weights, and set about doing my first set of lunges...wham, incredible pain in my hamstring. FML. I tried stretching it out and seeing what exercises I COULD do, but everything hurt the hammy, so I went home. Pissed, that I had put myself through all of it when I hadn't wanted to be there in the first place. Ugh.

So I iced it and babied it and had a couple of consolation cocktails Thursday. I felt a lot better yesterday, but I stayed away from the gym since I leave today on my hiking adventure in the AZ and UT national parks and I want it to be rested. So, no gym for me as of late.

Day 10
Calories eaten: 1438
Calories burned (BMR 1914)
Day 10 deficit: 476
Week deficit: 2495

Day 11
Calories eaten: 1681
Calories burned (BMR 1914)
Day 11 deficit: 233
Week deficit: 2728

Day 12
Calories eaten: 2250
Calories burned (BMR 1914)
Day 12 deficit: +336
Week deficit: 2392

So, even though the numbers are not reflecting it, I weighed in 2.5 lbs down today. Granted I'm likely dehydrated, but my body fat percentage was lower and all in all I'm just happy to see some change. This coming week I'm just going to be hiking and driving, so I'm anticipating having a wicked calorie burn and hopefully I'll see that needle go down further.

Ok, I need to pack! T-minus 3 hours and I need to head to the airport, woop woop!
