Yesterday ended up being a good follow up from Wednesday. My challenge was to come closer to my Sparkpeople calorie goal and to get in 33 minutes of exercise. Well I did just that. I had about an hour (give or take) of swimming, I moved some furnature to clean around the house and played with the kids. All that activity earned, better yet burned me 1011 calories. As for nutrition, I had a few moments of weakness, actually they were consecutive moments of weakness. However, even with all of the exercise I still had 1543 calories which is less than the 1570 allotted to me not counting the addition of the workout allowance. Goals met!
Now today I am setting my goals a little different. The only category I was over yesterday was fat, so today my goal is to come under in at least that category while staying in my calorie range. As for exercise, well I need to be productive around the house today. The kitchen and the half bath need my attention and I plan to take a box of Borax, my bucket, and a scrub brush to them. 33 minutes - that is my everyday goal for activity, and I am SURE the cleaning process will take more than that!
- A little elbow grease goes a long way!
