This is roughly my PLANNED activity schedule that I have been doing several weeks now:
Monday: am sleep in because I fly to work late Sunday nights; pm yoga class and one hour laps in pool
Tuesday: am cardio 45 minutes; pm one hour laps in pool
Wednesday: am cardio 35 minutes; pm yoga class and one hour laps in pool
Thursday: am cardio 45 minutes; pm brisk walk 30 minutes
Friday: am strength 45 minutes, brisk walk 30 min (w/dog), pm one hour laps in pool, brisk walk 30 min (w/dog)
Saturday: am brisk walk 30 min (w/dog); pm one hour laps in pool, brisk walk 30 min (w/dog)
Sunday: am strength 45 minutes, am brisk walk 30 min (w/dog); pm one hour laps in pool and then off to airport to fly to work again.
Because other FUN things come up on the weekend to be active, my calorie burn for the week now frequently goes over 10,000 calories according to tracker. I don't want to keep eating more and more if some weeks I do above and beyond my planned activity. I eat between 1550-1800 and have lost 2 pounds each week last three weeks after not losing at first when eating between 1200-1400 calories. But if it isn't a heavy duty cardio workout like a leisurely bike ride to the market, walking on the beach a couple hours, a few hours of recreational kayaking, etc. do I have to consider that bad because I don't have one full day I do NO ACTIVITY? Of note, I feel like my swimming is so amazingly relaxing I don't know how it could be cut. No impact at all to my old bones. I LOVE it. And I don't get all sweaty either. A win/win. And, once September rolls around I can only do it Monday-Thursday in hotel as our neighborhood pool will be closed.
I don't want to overdo it but if I am having fun and moving more I think it should be a good thing right?
Is it tomorrow already?
