Day 3 of my challenge wasn't so bad. I knew i needed to make sure i burned over 3000 calories throughout the day because i was going out to eat with friends. We went to this hole in the wall Mexican restaurant (always the best foods!) and i knew i was getting their chicken fajita salad that was 770 calories. That part was easy. But i wanted to burn the extra calories so i could eat chips and salsa. I had already planned for this to be a break even kind of day.
April 24th was Day 3:
i ate roughly 2460 calories
I burned roughly 3450 calories
I walked 4.21 miles
Even with the chips and salsa i would have been under 2000 calories eaten for the day. Then why did i eat closer to 2500 calories? Because i polished off the last of the cookies at my house. So no more cookies to munch on which is a good thing!
It's always so peaceful in the shade areas...
Don't let the shade fool you, it was hot!
After...trying to cool down in my car before i drove to meet friends for dinner...
As another part of this challenge is my weightloss. Here's where i stand:
Starting Weight: 319.8lbs
4/21/14 264.8lbs (-3.0lbs)
Since i am a daily weigher here's what the scale has read this week:
I know these numbers will fluctuate. My official weighins will be every Monday.
What are my goals for day 4?
* walk 3 miles
* strength train for 20 minutes
* eat under 2000 calories
* burn around 3000 calories
(I use a fitbit so those calories burned are my calories burned for a 24hr period of time NOT just during my workouts)
Since it's the weekend, i'll post by goals for Days 5-6 as well:
* walk 10-12 miles
* walk 3-4 miles
* strength train for 45 minutes
