My Accountability - Update for 1/19/10

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

My biggest downfall in 2009 was not being consistent with tracking my food and being accountable for what I am eating.

My goals for 2010 include
1. Tracking Daily
2. Going to the Y 2-3 nights a week and Strength Training 2-3 days a week.
3. Cardio of at least 30 minutes every day even if it’s just walking
4. Getting back to the 130’s.

As part of my accountability for 2010 I plan to post here to my blog daily with my calories and cardio/exercise for the day.

Daily calorie range for food is 1,750 - 2,100 a day.
Burn a total of 4750 calories

Sunday 1/17:
55 minutes of Zumba - 567 calories
1.5 hours of Step - 800 calories
30 minutes of abs/pushups - 150 calories
25 pushups minimum

Zumba - calories were 578
1.5 hours of step + the 20 minutes of abs and pushups, total of 50, are all tracked together - 1258
Cardio total - 1825 for the day! WOW!

As a result I was very hungry!
Calories: 2229
Cardio: 1825
Minutes: 161
Deficit: -1509.45

Monday 1/18:
55 minutes Circuit Training – 500 calories (I am subbing a class)
25 pushups

55 minutes of Circuit Training - DONE - 600 Calories Burned
38 Pushups done.

I had a bit of a binge on some trail mix the last two days. Had a very rough night last night with my daughter so I did some stress eating. Ugh. But I still had a deficit so I kept it under control.
Calories: 1979
Cardio: 600
Minutes: 55
Deficit: -518.45

Tuesday 1/19:
Strength & Tone class – 300 calories
Teach Dance Fusion – 600 calories
25 pushups

Strength & Tone - DONE 436 calories burned (it's all the squats - 2 different kinds, lunges and side lunges that get that heart rate up!)
Dance Fusion - DONE 1 hour and 731 calories burned! Class is awesome (at least I have a blast doing it) and I get to dance and be silly. What a perfect way to burn lots of calories!

Calories: 2053 (remnants of the trail mix binge which was part of a midnight snack run)
Cardio: 1167
Minutes: 115
Deficit: -1009.85

No more trail mix so calories should go down. Current weight is 144.6! (same as last week but less than the week before)
Sorry - No pushups emoticon

Wednesday 1/20:
Teach Double Step class – 600 calories
30 minutes Running – 250 calories
25 pushups

Thursday 1/21:
Strength & Tone class – 300 calories **I may not get this in because my daughter has Brownies unless I find someone to bring her home while I am at the Y.
25 pushups

Friday 1/22:
30 minutes on Elliptical – 300 calories
25 pushups

Saturday 1/16:
Teach Double Step – 650 calories burned
Teach Strength & Tone – 450 calories burned
25 pushups

Total Calories burned – 4750 for the week (Altho everything is already adding up to way more and when I put in my actuals which are sometimes higher I will exceed this.)

    Maybe the excess calorie burn is a part to the trail mix binging as well? Needing more calories + stress/emotions? But anyway - ROCK ON, WOMAN! I always feel relief when there's a particularly difficult food item in the house that I've been struggling with and it's all gone... :P I am much happier when I'm able to be around any food and be in control, and a lot of the time that's the case but sometimes stuff just gets me, too.
