1,000-2,499 SparkPoints

Day 1 - Talk about a great start!

Thursday, July 11, 2013

First the facts: I ate 1457 calories (which is listed under my goal for SparkPeople) but I didn't feel hungry yesterday. I burned 1270 calories (half of my weekly goal) which doesn't count the walking, stairs or other household movement I had all day.

Next, the results: I had a ton of energy , wasn't hungry, and slept well. I guess there is something behind this exercise business (LOL!!!!)

Now if those were my achievements yesterday, they have become my challenges for today. Oh and what a challenge they are!!! Considering it is raining in Ohio and swimming isn't an option. So my goal for today is come closer to my Sparkpeople calorie goal, and do my 33 minute minimum exercise today, I may have a game of Quarter HORSE on the Wii Fit with the kids.

Quarter HORSE you say??? What is that??? Well we pick 12 activities on the Wii Fit, (there are 3 of us and we each pick 4 activities). And I place 12 quarters on the top of the TV. The winner with the best score for each activity gets a quarter for that activity. It only costs me $3.00 some of which I win back, and then with the beauty of $.50 cones and Burger King and McDonalds this summer, we head out for a treat after dinner. We get to have fun exercising together and the reward is cheap, sweet and low on calories!

To anyone who read my Blog, I welcome the friend and buddy and encourage you to visit my SparkPage.
