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
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!
55 minutes Circuit Training – 500 calories (I am subbing a class)
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.
Strength & Tone class – 300 calories
Teach Dance Fusion – 600 calories
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)
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
Teach Double Step class – 600 calories
30 minutes Running – 250 calories
4 YEARS ON SPARKPEOPLE!
Double Step Class - DONE 638 calories burned. I had a great turnout but 4 new people which caused the class to not be as fast paced. I'll post another blog about my day at the Y yesterday.
Run - Due to events at the Y yesterday I was very frustrated and irritated. The run felt like crap, the knee was hurting so I bagged the run. Did 12 minutes and 121 calories.
Calories: 1942 (It would appear that Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters are hard to resist as well!)
Weight is now at 144.0 so nuts and granola are still ok (in moderation)
Sorry - No pushups
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.
30 minutes on Elliptical – 300 calories
Teach Double Step – 650 calories burned
Teach Strength & Tone – 450 calories burned
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.)
